    About The Book

    Leopard Lady: A Life in Verse is the story of Dinah, a biracial orphan born in Appalachia in the 1930s and “given” to the childless Gastons to raise. She is gifted with psychic ability and eventually finds her way out of exploitation into a life on the road as a carnival hootchie-kootchie dancer and fortune-teller. When afflicted with vitiligo, she adds a turn as a “freak” called the Leopard Lady. Self-educated with the King James Bible and a volume of Shakespeare, her voice blends Elizabethan phrasings with Appalachian and carnival speech. When a dropout from divinity school joins the show, they begin a debate over the nature of God and man — each seeking an understanding of their place in the universe — that becomes a close friendship.

    “Unique, deeply moving, funny, and composed on the edge of danger and enlightenment, Leopard Lady is masterful. Nieman’s syntax, rhymes, meter and scenes make music, while the reader is charged with an energy that takes us closer and closer to the singular truth we must bear.”

    —Kelly Cherry, former Poet Laureate of Virginia
