By Jennifer Parker,G.L. Morrison

an in depth CIRCLE OF STRANGERS is a heartwarming and thought-provoking selection of unique "Poems for a Lonely Planet" from Jennifer Merri Parker, an award successful, Mississippi-raised, globe-trotting author. Parker, who has famous in lately penned prose that her American wanderings and expatriate lifestyles in another country have culminated in a compulsion to pen a press release of worldwide citizenship, a type of "letter to the world," has ultimately, fortunately, placed that missive in concrete shape. during this lyrical anthology, she speaks via a various number of characters, supplying a number of takes on human interactions. those works discover the vagaries of relationships and rifts, connection, disconnection and overlooked connection--all via phrases crafted with based tenderness, humor and perception. Parker, a Harvard graduate, former journalist, librarian and globe-trotting teacher/scholar, combines her personal stressed center (with its consistent quest for novel and renewed acquaintance) besides a playful wit, an ageless experience of ask yourself, and a masterful skill to meld rational that means and emotion. therefore, out of her personal stories, the recollection of others' tales, and the mind's eye of empathy, Parker has created this "close circle of strangers." those modern lyric poems include not anything lower than a compassionate compendium of narrative confessions in verse, giving voice to powerfully resonant and unforgettable expressions of affection, loss and eager for human connection.

The Persistence of Longing

Named a finalist for the Northern California Book Award in Poetry as the most effective works through a northern California poet released in 2016I love those poems, love how they sweep me alongside, sweep me up into the fingers of the type of longing that turns out unsayable, untranslatable, very unlikely to explain in any language, with any words—the phrases turning again into breath, as this poet says, as she creates the experience of that longing, itself, in phrases, in those sometimes-breathless strains, occasionally opposed to the restraint of shape, the candy soreness of rhyme, creating that experience of urgency that’s so like hope, itself, and the feel of hazard that infuses even the private excitement, in particular the inner most excitement.
