The Mirror Talk chapter entitled "Make Mine Cognac" about an experimental play Alfaro appeared in was the funniest story I've read in years - and had me laughing, and laughing, and laughing out loud. Alfaro's sharp, witty writing style is reminiscent of a wisecracking reporter Hildy Johnson in the Ben Hecht comedy His Girl Friday or even the ultimate wit - Miss Dorothy Parker herself. ~ Silver Birch Press A wonderfulreflection on the life of an artist and poet, Mirror Talk is both a comfortingread for a rainy day and a journey of self-discovery not to be missed. Alfaroprovides us with our own opportunity to remember how we became who we aretoday. Her robust memories are topped with a welcoming layer of nostalgia thatallows the reader to feel the waves of Rockaway Beachlapping at our toes while we look back fondly on life's moments of hilarity. ~ IndieReader
