I'd recommend it for the old to remind them of where we've been.
Laura Ireland
The beautiful, lyrical quality of this work is pure joy to experience, the no nonsense approach to hardship and hard times is pure inspiration.
susan wagner
Well worth a read and deserves to be one of the poetry books studied in America.

Format: Paperback
I first read Liz's work on Francis Ford Coppola's web site, Zoetrope and have loved her stories ever since.
She has taken me on many journeys and each time it's as if I'm right there with her, living through her upbringing during the Great Depression, trying in vain to find a way to release her son, trapped in rocks as the fast-approaching tide threatened his life, making me relive them again through her eyes and skillful words.
This is such a charming look back at seventy-plus years of one woman's life and the events and non-events that made her who she is.
I would recommend this book for the young, to let them see how and why we've come so far. I'd recommend it for the old to remind them of where we've been.
I have read it through several times--it's a short read--and have loaned it to all my friends, who loved it too.

By A Customer on December 18, 2000
Format: Paperback
Liz Larrabee proves that the writer in all of us flowers when the ability to tap into memories is transformed into art. Her individual memory poems, short stories and nonfiction pieces are gems of language, imagination and humor. But, they rise to something greater in synergy to reveal a remarkable woman whose journey from Massachusetts to Florida takes her around the world, exploring its mysteries and people with her pen and her camera. Growing up in a time when money was scarce, young Liz finds glamour at dancing school and excitement in walking the rails of the Boston and Maine, always reaching for the brass ring of endless possibilities propelled by sharp intelligence and limitless curiosity. Married then divorced, she accepts the formidable challenges of single motherhood, often thumbing her nose at adversity with wit, wisdom, courage and vigor. Whether Larrabee is recalling a failed movie date on December 7, 1941, the shape of her hardworking mother's hands, or a Christmas with five children and no money, one that ends in the triumph of love, she touches the heart and stimulates the mind. Here is a writer who had this reader laughing through my tears, crying through my laughter and begging for more.

Format: Paperback
From the 1930's onward, Liz walks you through her life. No, she runs at the speed of light, stopping only to share those precious moments that have burned their way into her memory cells. And there are many. A life filled with emotions of both happiness and sadness and sprinkled with Liz's unique sense of humor. I dare say, when readers of a younger generation pick up this book, they will undoubtedly be overcome by a wash of jealousy, wondering why they couldn't have lived in such a fulfilling time. An excellent book to leave on the coffee table, so that at any given time you can open a page at random and read the story printed there. I guarantee you will find yourself turning pages until you suddenly agree with what Liz says, "My goodness, where did the time go?"

Format: Paperback
In our house Liz Larrabee's book is one that never collects dust on a shelf.The book has a permanent place of honor on the coffee table where anyone can (and DOES) pick it up and enjoy the marvelous talent of this exceptional writer. This is a book for young and old alike, for poetry lovers and for those whose eyes glaze over at the mere mention of the word. Liz has a style and flair that is both outstanding and pleasing, and in this book the heart of the poet sings out from every page. Anyone who doesn't have the book....by all means get it. You will not regret the choice. I have purchased several as gifts to family and friends, and they, in turn, have placed orders for still more. Kudos, Liz....your work is exquisite !
