About this product
- DescriptionThese stories and poems are a unique insight into what makes us all human. They unfold deceptively making the reader aware of the ironies of everyday life with all its sadness and joy, its unpredictability and inevitability. Peggy Lewis makes us consider our past as she writes; On a dog-day afteron, I found Where father's father lay ... or our desire to control the people we love so that we do t lose them: David accuses me of interfering. 'For goodness sake Rachel, why is it that you always try to manipulate people?' he says. We are made to confront ourselves as we recognise our own fears and regrets: My daughter's like me, she sees with my eyes, loves the things I love. Yet I fear she also shares my weaknesses. Written over thirty years during the latter half of the twentieth century, Peggy Lewis's writing was ahead of its time. Her women are independent, fierce and strong. Her men are compassionate, protective and, at times, chauvinistic. Her stories and poems are timeless for, as the decades change, our desire to love and be loved, to experience the burning 'candle' of our lives is captured in the poignant sincerity of the writing. Read these stories and poems. You will find yourselves somewhere between the lines.
