About The Last Girl:

"Solari's poems begin from the center of her heart. Word seduction, myth given life again, these poems descend from the sky as if there was another beautiful galaxy out there, just beyond our reach, breaking apart, poem by poem."
—E. Ethelbert Miller

"The Last Girl by Rose Solari casts the spell of a held piano note on a dark key. A haunting melancholy runs through these rich, finely crafted poems. Solari writes with honesty, empathy. and tenderness about the islands we find ourselves on-our shipwrecked lives, and our survival. Evocative, sensual, wistful, but with the sharp edge of one who endures, who carries on."
—Jim Daniels
