Product description

Product Description

“The trunk of this family is lost to history / Photo fragments remain as shadows”

With subtle wit, and poignant imagery, the unrelenting passage of time connects the vignettes in Theresa Milstein’s Time and Circumstance. This reflective collection of real and imagined poetry and prose, speculates on an erratic childhood, the uncertainty of adolescence, and the reality of parenthood, through flashbacks of love lost and found.

“This everyday, why again, sometimes / ignored tune has measured time in notes, / seconds, minutes, days, years, and so it goes. / It’s a measure of the man he will become.”

5.0 out of 5 stars A Small Gem 20 March 2017
By A mom - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This lovely collection of poems, stories and other short pieces is a little gem. I think the poems, especially are very approachable, and I would highly recommend them to teachers for a poetry unit to help teenagers relate to poetry as an art form more easily. I'm thinking especially of "All Set," which so clearly describes the gulf between a mom trying to give her daughter what she wants, and the kid who is devastated that her mom got it all wrong - and now she has to go to school with it. Each piece captures those moments, joy, heartbreak, frustration, humiliation, so clearly and completely. I can't wait to read more.

I adored Milstein's writing on her blog and this book matches the style and quality of what I read previously. This is a fantastic collection of poetry and microfiction. She knows how to powerfully arrange words.

This delightful collection of poems and short vignettes skillfully captures and depicts some of the changes and milestones of an individual's life. With minimum words, Ms. Milstein manages to deliver maximum meaning. (Not an easy task!)

This fast-reading book was a pleasure to read. Try it. I betcha like it.
