By Jennifer Parker,G.L. Morrison

a detailed CIRCLE OF STRANGERS is a heartwarming and thought-provoking number of unique "Poems for a Lonely Planet" from Jennifer Merri Parker, an award successful, Mississippi-raised, globe-trotting author. Parker, who has famous in lately penned prose that her American wanderings and expatriate existence out of the country have culminated in a compulsion to pen an announcement of world citizenship, a kind of "letter to the world," has ultimately, fortunately, placed that missive in concrete shape. during this lyrical anthology, she speaks via a various selection of characters, supplying a variety of takes on human interactions. those works discover the vagaries of relationships and rifts, connection, disconnection and neglected connection--all via phrases crafted with dependent tenderness, humor and perception. Parker, a Harvard graduate, former journalist, librarian and globe-trotting teacher/scholar, combines her personal stressed middle (with its consistent quest for novel and renewed acquaintance) besides a playful wit, an ageless feel of ask yourself, and a masterful skill to meld rational which means and emotion. hence, out of her personal stories, the recollection of others' tales, and the mind's eye of empathy, Parker has created this "close circle of strangers." those modern lyric poems include not anything under a compassionate compendium of narrative confessions in verse, giving voice to powerfully resonant and unforgettable expressions of affection, loss and eager for human connection.
