Writing about oneself, says Patricia Foster, "engages in truth but depends on the imagination, on the life just beneath the skin, a life that's impressionistic and fragile." These eleven closely linked personal essays are at once an absorbing chronicle of a life fully undertaken and a model for anyone who has contemplated self-investigation through autobiographical writing. The book's three sections each convey a stage of Foster's journey--still ongoing--toward new levels of insight and maturity. "Inside the Girls' Room" takes us back to Foster's life in the rural South from the 1950s through the early 1970s. Here she reveals the mixed messages and stereotypes of southern womanhood by which she was raised-and from which she fled. With adulthood, Foster moves to "Inside the Writing Room," a place dotted with discoveries about autobiography as a path to creative expression and inner coherence. Finally, at the place in her life Foster calls "Inside My Skin," autobiography helps her to explore and to claim her cultural identity. Returning to her native South, she holds a writing workshop for a group composed mostly of middle-aged black women, visits a beloved maid from her childhood, and returns to old haunts as a witness to her concerns about race and class. This gathering of lyrical essays explores the intelligent, intuitive heart of a woman struggling to claim both her identity and her place in the world.

RAW Poetry Beneath the Skin

Has not every person been broken or hurt in one way or another? I feel your pain and I want you to know you are not alone. Just like there are happy poems and sad poems in this book, life is full of happy moments and sad moments.

"RAW" is a collection of poetry written to, for the most part, relate to a general audience. A realistic audience. Has not every person been broken or hurt in one way or another? I feel your pain and I want you to know you are not alone. Just like there are happy poems and sad poems in this book, life is full of happy moments and sad moments. We will all smile and we will all cry before our time on earth is over. My desire for you is that you will cherish every moment. Life is for living. Live in the joyful moments. Smile, laugh, and love with all you have. Live in the despairing moments. Weep, shake, and survive to see the happy times again. Just like there will always be sadness in life, there will also always be happiness. They are unavoidable and one cannot exist without the other.

In the small town of North River, every day that goes by bleeds into the next. Poverty begets hopelessness, hopelessness breeds violence, violence causes despair. The only way to change fate, a minister tells his son, is to leave. The minister’s son, Jake MacNeil, chooses to ignore his father’s advice. Only when he realizes what has become of his life — working a grueling dead-end job, living with a drunk, friends with a murderer — does he decide to make something of himself. But nothing comes without a cost: in choosing freedom, Jake abandons his own son, Nathan, to the care of the boy’s abusive mother. Years later, a reformed Jake comes back for Nathan, to finally set things right. But in North River, everything comes around again; and when a dangerous figure from the past becomes hell-bent on dragging the new Jake “back down where he belongs”, three generations of MacNeil men must come together to pay the full price of hope. Gritty, unrelenting, yet peppered with Darren Greer’s trademark poignance, Just Beneath My Skin is the work of an author at the height of his game.

This collection of poems, are pieces of my life that made me who I am today. Some of them are very extreme while others are so deep it almost relates too much. Others walk you through love so endearing your heart will palpitate like it never has. I know because I experienced it. This book was written with the intention of inviting others into a few minutes of relief. To be able to let go and move on is a freeing thing and I hope I have been able to help you do that through my words. God bless, and please look forward to other writings from me. Thank you in advance for giving me a chance to open myself up to you.
