Scholarship Girl

Georgetown, Kentucky: Finishing Line Press, 2007. First Edition.

SIGNED by Lesley Wheeler on the title page, where she has drawn a line through her printed name and signed in ink above it.

Wheeler's first poetry collection; all of the poems relate to World War II-era Liverpool. "A version of my mother, Patricia (Cain) Wheeler, is a protagonist here," she writes, adding that others have shared stories about Liverpool as well. Her book presents a "filtered, idiosyncratic perspective," she says.
