From the publisher's description:

The title of the collection serves as an umbrella for the intimate concerns expressed in the forty-eight poems; in music, grace notes are those added to the basic melody, the embellishments that—if played or sung at the right moment with just the right touch—can break your heart.

Subjects: Fiction and Poetry; American Literature; African American Literature; Poetry; Women Authors
