The author was born in Poland in 1945, has a BA in philosophy from University of Texas in Austin and currently resides in Colorado. She was named for her paternal grandmother who died in a concentration camp, exact time and place unknown. In 1972 Random House published The Grubbag, a collection of weekly columns she wrote (under the name Ita Jones) for the Liberation News Service from 1968-70.
Triple Vision is the perfect title for this collection. The author sees life through the eyes of a philosopher, a painter, a poet... these stories will challenge you intellectually, stimulate you emotionally and delight all your senses.
“The Gift is one woman's journey to find an answer from the horror of the past. It is a quest to bring to rest the guilt of the next generation, the children of the survivors and refugees surrounded by an immense family of ghosts...Seen through the cycle of the seasons, she, the first person narrator, tries to put the past not to rest but to life."
