Editorial Reviews

Review

Michaels is a great poet of loss, and the challenges of memory in the face of it ... Michaels produces passages of lyrical beauty, and eloquently expresses her horror at human violence inflicted on the land and its inhabitants Guardian Her dramas are internal, exquisitely expressed with ... wisdom and precision Amanda Craig, Daily Telegraph Stay if you can with Michaels' gorgeous melancholia even when the waters of her rhetoric rise to the very lip of absurdity...She guides us to the top of some extraordinary peaks of feeling and perception. However rarefied the atmosphere, the vistas are spectacular Boyd Tonkin, Independent A master of deft, pithy images ... there is truth as well as beauty in this dark world Spectator Publishers are celebrating the allure of the beautiful object with editions that make a virtue of the form. Consider a concertina book of letters, Correspondences, from author Anne Michaels Harper's Bazaar --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is my first encounter with a commercially published accordion book, I am so pleased that I was able to handle it and share it with friends who are also interested in this structure. In terms of the content: the combination of paintings, poetry and material extracted from the writing of those portrayed was for me, a wining trifecta.

Plan to spend a lot of time in this artful book because there's a lot here and it takes a clear focus. Read it backward and forward. Pictures help honor the subjects of these writings. It truly is a work of art with heart.
