Reviews / Endorsements

“These poems are beads gathered from around the world and threaded on the haunting death of a college-aged son by drowning—so that, in them grief itself becomes a country that can have no boundaries at all. The poems embody both memory and absence, rendered emotionally raw and yet invariably, indelibly elegant. Praisner knows how to wield a resonant image without hysteria or hyperbole; through her restraint, her images seem an outgrowth of a natural decorum. . .”—Renée Ashley

“Praisner’s book is a powerful retelling of her travels around the world and into memories of the past. With striking visual imagery, she makes us see and feel . . . Her language, poetic and precise, makes us feel and share emotions described and events visited in these fine poems.”—Jean Hollander

WANDA S. PRAISNER has appeared in Atlanta Review, Margie, Prairie Schooner and elsewhere. She is a resident poet for New Jersey.
