Description

In "We Are Beach Glass", poet Emily-Sue Sloane invites readers on a journey into the wonder and worry of life. This full-length collection of seventy poems is presented in nine sections, each opening with a haiku. Sloane draws on nature's beauty and the unpredictability of human interactions with vivid language that often takes unexpected and sometimes humorous turns. This collection is for anyone who appreciates an honest look at life's beauty and struggles, whether imagining a walk through a Seurat painting in the midst of a pandemic or observing whales off the coast of Cape Cod. In poems that draw on childhood memories, love's endurance, the turning of the seasons, and surviving pandemic quarantine, hope wins out over despair. This is the poet's debut collection.
