Description

"The poems are honest, raw, close to the heart. They will speak to, console, and inspire you about the brutal, heart rending reality and reward of caring for someone with Alzheimer's."--Phillip Levine, poetry editor, Chronogram.
These 96 poems about Marcia Slatkin's mother's Alzheimer's disease take us into new territory--not hospital or hospice but the intimate daily world of care-giving where we find not only the ravages of this illness, but also the possibility of grace . . . .
