From the Publisher
Best-known as a musician and a spoken-word performer, poet Tanya Davis has now taken to the page with At First, Lonely. In this collection, she reflects on life''s many passages: falling in love and out, the search for personal truth, the search for home. Davis''s
style is one-of-a-kind: a blend of contemporary phrasing with profound personal expression. But her message is universal; over two million people have watched How to Be Alone, a film adaptation of her poem created by independent filmmaker Andrea Dorfman. Tanya
Davis'' poetry challenges the intellect and touches deep places in the heart.
