About the Book
It would be difficult to imagine a reader who cannot relate to Barber´s poetry on a personal and emotional level. Reading her poems becomes a private conversation with an acute sensibility characterized by a profound understanding of human relationships and the ending thereof.
- The Journal of Canadian Poetry
Marsha Barber´s poetry embodies clear-eyed observation, uncommonly thoughtful reflection, and abundant empathy, in a voice that is strong, crisp and memorable. It gets to the heart of each subject it takes on, whether childhood and the pains of growth, intimate portraiture of family members and famous creators, sorrow at the passing of loved ones, or events in the wider world. This is an involving, moving and wise book, by an author who becomes a trusted confidante, a good friend.
