really liked it
bookshelves: poetry
Recommended for: Mary Oliver fans, lovers of the outer Cape
Read in October, 2007

What is lovely about this book is not Molly Malone Cook's photography (while some of her photos are compelling, others are almost mundane) or Mary Oliver's prose (it's not her best work) but the glimpse it gives into the inner life of this very private couple. Snippets from Molly's journals are delightfully funny and intimate; Mary's descriptions of their life together in Provincetown ring familiar for anyone who has delighted in living on ther outer Cape, and leave me wanting more.
