In her book "Two Blocks East of Vine," Iris Berry's poems tell the story of Hollywood as it is and was, with a nonchalance that's fragile, intelligent and tough all at once. And she doesn't hide the sometimes unpleasant scenarios beneath flowery language.

Listen to MP3 of a track from her New Alliance spoken word CD "Life on the Edge in Stilettos."

"Her writing not only proves her depth in evoking every aspect of womankind, but her soul soars up like the mythological Phoenix after having been burned up in this beloved hellhole we call L.A." - Flipside
