SALTWATER, A MEMOIR by Gail Soliwoda Cassilly. St. Louis sculptor, Gail Cassilly, has taken to words, crafting a vibrant and emotionally compelling portrait of life. About the Book: Saltwater springs from Polish American roots in a working class neighborhood of Erie, Pa. and flows, unexpectedly, through an exotic and spiritual stretch of life and learning in Africa. From there the waters of adulthood turn passionately choppy, tossing about the common ingredients of life in a rough and rich blend of zany adventure and personal reconciliation. The entire ride is engaging and gripping, infused with bright wit and poetic execution. With an artist's eye and sensitivity, Cassilly superbly crafts and reveals an utterly memorable composition of life that is well worth the read.
