The unique literary blog from writer Jeanne Griggs features Solari’s “Somewhere Between Four and Five A.M.”
Blogger and English PhD, Jeanne Griggs, discovers a gem while sorting her bookshelves.

The Last Girl is Solari’s third collection of poetry after Orpheus in the Park and Columbia award-winning Difficult Weather. The Last Girl represents a writer working at the peak of her powers, possessed of technical mastery, fierce perception, and a tender but unsentimental heart.
The Last Girl
A shimmering girl who disappears in daylight. A boy who goes to war and comes back forever broken. New landscapes in which old ghosts appear, telling their stories. Such are the people, places, and images that fill Rose Solari’s third collection of poetry.
