"In poems that move us from Europe in the 1930s to Canada in the twenty-first century, Merle Nudelman strings lyric pearls against a panorama of the holocaust and a Jewish family's emigration to Canada. She filigrees a web of delicate family interconnections that holds fast despite the rending winds of war and the felt traumas that can only be recollected in peacetime. Here is a poet who knows in her bones what a lyric moment can mean, and who works in her poetry toward those gemlike instances of 'Borrowed Light' when we fully understand what it means to thrive". -- Molly Peacock.
