Editorial Reviews

Review

"Faye Rapoport DesPres transports us back to that mysterious realm of what it is to be human in all its grit and beauty, as close to the bone as you can get. She captures that essence in her essays and it unfurls like watching the blaze of a sunrise over the mountains slowly usurp what was considered mundane and pedestrian before we witnessed it. Exceptional and unparalleled." --~ Meg Tuite, Author of Bound by Blue and Domestic Apparition and fiction editor of Connotation Press: An Online Artifact

"Channeling Dante, DesPres regards the middle of her life's journey, and finds it challenging. Her honest, affecting memoir about her forties is written with a lyrical touch and covers topics that will resonate with many readers: a new husband; a falling-down house; a dying mother-in-law, who's not going gently into her good night; travels to other countries; and magical encounters with the outdoors." --Brandeis Magazine
