these poems are uniquely about everyday life: getting up in the morning, sitting in the kitchen with pets, buying buttons and meeting a salesman, politics, polio, christmas, about time lost, love and beautiful children. the author, growing up in family with polio, living through 2 divorces and the sudden death of a husband, weaves us a story of a single mom brought 'home' through curiosity and the observation of the quirkiness of life anywhere around her: in queens, long island, switzerland, vermont and new york city-that same quirkiness we all share. these poems will resonate with us all.
