Parker, a Harvard graduate, former journalist, librarian and globe-trotting teacher/scholar, combines her personal stressed middle (with its consistent quest for novel and renewed acquaintance) in addition to a playful wit, an ageless feel of ask yourself, and a masterful skill to meld rational that means and emotion. hence, out of her personal reports, the recollection of others' tales, and the mind's eye of empathy, Parker has created this "close circle of strangers." those modern lyric poems contain not anything below a compassionate compendium of narrative confessions in verse, giving voice to powerfully resonant and unforgettable expressions of affection, loss and eager for human connection.
