Poetry. BORROWED COATS, the fourth Hanging Loose collection of Wilma Elizabeth McDaniel's work in the last twenty years, once again demonstrates the understated power of this poet who began writing as a child and has never stopped. Her work fuses the overheard conversation of real people with memories of a Depression childhood, a highly personal spiritual insight, and sharp observations of life in today's San Joaquin Valley. McDaniel stamps her poems with an undeniable signature of simplicity of diction combined with power of suggestion. -- Laurel Speer.
