Essay about Willow Frost Poem

Jamie Ford is one of the few modern yet revolutionarily ambiguous writers of our time. Ford, author of powerfully insightful books such as “House on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet,” which has won incredible awards and appraisals from around the globe including but not limited to: being a New York Times bestseller and winning the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature, has once again written a hard-hitting work of art – the fairly new and beautifully coherent novel: “Songs of Willow Frost.” In this novel Ford makes loud connections that transcend time in the characters’ affairs with cultural beliefs, societal views, and authoritative abuse.
