Inhaltsangabe: Written by a young woman who came of age in the 1970s, these poems express the raw emotions that accompany the painful and liberating metamorphosis from child to adult in language that is at once soothingly lyrical and fiercely direct. Discovered after her death, these clear-eyed and unflinching works have now been collected in this volume that also features the few but compelling poems she wrote later in life. Its delightful ?Postscript? includes selections from the clever, light-hearted verse she composed for children.
Über den Autor: Kathryn Solms Wheeler was born to be a poet. A keen observer of life?s connections and contradictions, she started writing poetry in the fourth grade and, by high school, fellow students had dubbed her the ?Emily Dickinson of the Island.? Winner of the prestigious Eerdmans? Prize for Poetry when she graduated from college, she was invited by renowned poet Richard Hugo to join his MFA program at the University of Montana. Later, she was awarded the Michigan Council for the Arts grant for fiction, and was featured in "Who's Who of American Women." Although her poetry career was derailed by depression and disappointment, and her life was sadly shortened by a rare progressive lung disease, she left behind an impressive -- in quality if not quantity -- body of work, collected and published posthumously by her husband and literary executor, W. Donald Wheeler.
