By Jennifer Parker,G.L. Morrison

an in depth 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 lifestyles in a foreign country have culminated in a compulsion to pen a press release of worldwide citizenship, a kind of "letter to the world," has ultimately, fortunately, positioned that missive in concrete shape. during this lyrical anthology, she speaks via a various selection of characters, providing 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 based tenderness, humor and perception. Parker, a Harvard graduate, former journalist, librarian and globe-trotting teacher/scholar, combines her personal stressed center (with its consistent quest for novel and renewed acquaintance) in addition to a playful wit, an ageless experience 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 contain not anything below a compassionate compendium of narrative confessions in verse, giving voice to powerfully resonant and unforgettable expressions of affection, loss and eager for human connection.
