9780932027665: Behind the Pictures I Hang

In Behind the Pictures I Hang, many poems encompass the theme of love. When Ada Jill Schneider counts the ways, she speaks of more than young love. Rather, it is the joy that comes with the birth of a child, loving through sorrow, devotion to family an abiding love that has endured into the poet's seventies. Schneider's work also reflects her admiration for the fervor of others, from Michael James, the renowned quiltmaker, to Pam Wilkinson, her irrepressible hairdresser in Fall River, to the "Psychiatrist with Gorgeous Shoes." Peek behind these pictures Ada Jill Schneider has so expertly hung, and discover a portrait of love, and sometimes "Fireworks", that is very personal and, at the same time, universal.

Review:

"Ada Jill Schneider is a celebrant of love, in many forms, but most deliciously...of marriage in which, "we stuck it out from vinyl through tape to CDs." What a joy to read poems of such deep humanity and wit." --Betsy Sholl, Poet Laureate of Maine, author of Late Psalm

"The lump in your throat is as natural as love." --Alec Dyson Brown, author of "Sentiment & Sense"

"These sly and accomplished poems work in layered ways. The poet delights in speaking out of two sides of her mouth at the same time. Schneider's wit and irreverence electrify the sentiments. This book is an unnerving pleasure to read." --Natasha Saje, author of "Bend"

"Ada Jill Schneider is a celebrant of love, in many forms, but most deliciously...of marriage in which, "we stuck it out from vinyl through tape to CDs." What a joy to read poems of such deep humanity and wit." --Betsy Sholl, Poet Laureate of Maine, author of Late Psalm
