I love books of poetry. And this book did not disappoint. I had a good time reading it during this long family day weekend. What better way to spend a long weekend than reading!
This is a poetry book that tracks the vicissitudes of midlife marriage in her saucy, vulnerable, philosophical sixth collection.
Molly shows her sensual imagination in this book. It really is a memoir type book that is written through poetry. And it is really well done too. I just was glued to every page.
This is an amazingly mature and sensuous collection of poems that show the passions beneath the surface of a marriage; Molly Peacock always finds a way to love a little more. Read these poems and feel transformed.
She also looks honestly at herself and her relationships. She offers insights in language that is plain and accessible, and also artful. Her poems make you think–not to struggle to figure out their surface meaning–but to think about the underlying issues and what is really being shared about life and love.
I loved the book from start to finish. And I would recommend it to anyone who loves to read heartfelt poetry!
