Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"In an age where cultures, people, and place are so easily objectified, reduced to abstractions, commodities, or statistics, Three Hours to Burn a Body is a collection that returns us, thankfully, to earth. Across India, China, and Mongolia, to California, England, and all over Latin America, Suzanne Roberts shares the view at ground level, the brutality and grace and sometimes transcendence in the lives of everyday people. She reminds us that travel can be an act of remembrance. This is an important and moving work." - David Miller

"Suzanne Roberts' book of travel poems flits with the sadness of blue butterflies through the Amazon rainforest (a green dream turning to the scarred crackle of grass and stumps). It washes to shore in Nicaragua with garbage and American tourists who hunt the cobblestoned streets for child prostitutes giggling in their mothers' make-up. Roberts travels the world on the margin of desire, with the freedom of loneliness, and these poems are the flame that `twists from the ghost of an eye,' the flame of bodies burning and raining in our hair like ash, they are dawn prayers from a mosque, and the sun like a tangerine behind the gauzy net of the world. Journey with this book, and you will hear in that strange passage the pathos of all passages through, and the glancing knowledge of what it means to be in time, trying to understand what goes by `like a stranger's secret [you] overhear in passing.'" - Tony Barnstone

"Each poem takes us beyond the song of the body and shadow, and asks us to rise above the mist, the rain, and the hours. And without realizing, we find a new way of travelling. Provoking and thrilling!" - Nathalie Handal

When I retired some years ago I decided to read a poem a week
and try to enhance my reading experience. You have a lot of time to
read and now to do some of what you didn't have time to do before.
I now have progressed to buying a book of poetry and I am glad I
started with this one as Suzanne writes poems that the budding reader
can appreciate. There is a lyrical quality as I read. At first it seems
simple but as you read there appears more meaning and emotion.

I particularly liked the title poem and all written in India.
I will come back to these time and again. And I also will study
The Girl's Life and the other English poems.
