" Laced with gentle satire and personal confession, this is a collection of verses offering glimpses into six decades of living in two cultures, those of northern England and southern California. Verse forms vary from imitative rhymed sonnet and tetrameter to contemporary flowing freeform. Each poem is introduced with a brief note linking it directly to the authors unique experience."
