Editorial Reviews


"Decidedly quirky, certainly offbeat, Antique Piano & Other Sour Notes is a refreshingly unpretentious and gratifying collection of eclectic poetry...Laced with irony and deadpan humour...sure to find winning smiles." - Spotlight Review, Book Viral

( 5 stars) "Etlin has a refreshing voice in poetry...fabulous." - Reen Graham, Goodreads

(5 stars) "uplifting...unusual...many of the poems really resonated with me." -Annastew1144, Goodreads

(4 stars) "Wonderfully thoughtful" - ML H, Amazon.co.uk

(4 stars) "special...both uplifting and thought-provoking." - Lorraine Carter, Goodreads

About the Author

Although Barbara Etlin claims to have been an owl in a previous life, there is no evidence to substantiate this. She attended the Erma Bombeck Writer's Workshop twice, so she must be twice as funny. As she used to be. Or something.Besides poetry and journalism, she writes novels for children. She lives in a nest in Toronto with one husband, the memory of one extraordinary dog, two electronic cats, and about 300 owls. Antique Piano & Other Sour Notes, her first book, is a collection of mostly humorous poems. Maybe by putting them into a book she won't lose them again.

Format: Paperback
This is a very unusual poetry book and the quirkiness of it is attractive. The haiku is sublime! The rhyming is great and the subject matter ranges from serious and sour to reflective with a touch of dry humor. I enjoyed this poetry book a lot.
