Description

"Wendy Lee Hermance's prose and poetry are made of touching and surprising childhood memories - of shriveled apples, old pillows, fallen tree limbs, imaginary radio stations and things so difficult to put into words that we can only glimpse them between the lines of this highly compelling work."
Richard Zimler, international best-selling author of The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon.

Review quote

"Wendy Lee Hermance's prose and poetry are made of touching and surprising childhood memories - of shriveled apples, old pillows, fallen tree limbs, imaginary radio stations and things so difficult to put into words that we can only glimpse them between the lines of this highly compelling work."
Richard Zimler - The Gospel According to Lazarus, The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon

The prose and poetry in Wendy Lee Hernance's personal narrative comprise a unique memoir beginning with richly detailed childhood experiences, moving through adolescence, ultimately manifesting in adulthood. Where I'm Going with this Poem, is a hymn to "this lovely human mess" that is the speaker's life, but this is a life filled with a myriad of experiences, all described with a poet's empathy and attention to detail reminding us all, as Hernance did in the last poem of the collection, of our capacity to find some things to love.

Marjory Wentworth - South Carolina Poet Laureate
