Shelves: poetry
Exquisitely structured. I loved the idea of the Q&A using various poetic questions. Loved the way, in Still Life, poems about fruit alternate with those about her grandparents and war. And the flow from poem to poem in The River Reflected was fabulous. A few fruit poems felt forced, which is the only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars. This is one I will reread.
