About the Book
This second collection of poetry by the Laura Qa exemplifies the ability to blend sensuality and thought with literary innovation. Inasmuch as the title pays homage to the dog that guards the gates of Hell, here are verses that venture into the realm of the soul and appraise survival after death. As it was in the myth of Psyche and Cupid, a successful passage and return from the depths of unreality grants a vision of immortality.
Laura Qa gracefully combines technical form and conventional style to create the perfect channel for her creative energy. Her words evoke lyrical magic that brings ancient and modern myths into a world of shared images. Her themes convey a wealth of imagination and intensity of feeling with an irresistible touch that reminds us of the strength of our desires, both secular and sacred.
