Pressestimmen"There are so many delights in this book, interpenetrated by so many losses.... She keeps her eye unflinchingly on 'the rough loving arms of this world,' even as she is buffeted about by it." - Lynne McMahon, Judge; "From the searing heart of pain and patience come the transporting poems of Karen Fiser. Trust them. Treasure them. These poems are resounding, important, and deeply humane." - Naomi Shihab Nye, author, Fuel"
