Here is the review I posted on Amazon.
The changing feelings and conditions
Of a person,
Of two people,
Of an animal,
Of an object,
Over an hour or a lifetime,
Each captured in a concise slide-show,
Each snap-shot taken
Not included in that review were lines that particularly struck me.
‘Calculating Loss’ (on p.51) included the wise observation,
“Every day the world subtracts from itself and nothing
‘Between the Art and the Muse’ (p.17) contains the phrase
out the window to his rightfulness”. Replace ‘his’ by ‘her’ when appropriate, and you have a phrase that captures the innermost thought of everyone who has experienced unrequited love.
