CAPUT NILI: HOW I WON THE WAR AND LOST MY TASTE FOR ORANGES
author: Lisa Gill
illustrator: Kris Mills
Caput Niliâ€”a hybrid of poetry, prose, and artâ€”examines how a hard-won diagnosis reveals a history of violence. Ever resilient, Gill mitigates the severity of the subject matter with humor and intelligence.
Outrageous, funny, and brilliant! â€”Joy Harjo
