'Hieroglyphics' of the Heart' by Susan Marc Lawley

author excavates generations of family stories and decodes the universal messages
and emotions they hold. | Article from the Verona-Cedar Grove Times

Words failed; what did family mean?/It would take a lifetime/to answer these questions.

"So writes Sue Lawley in this illuminating collection of poems reflecting generations of stories from one Italian-American family. We relish the old ways of pasta drying on chair backs and bedspreads and the rooster in the claw foot tub; we are taken to a new life in a sixteen room manor house; we grieve as one after another of the beloved family departs; we understand that possessions do not fulfill the narrator’s yearning, so she turns to her work: I feel something more precious than crown jewels.// I feel useful in the world/. This moving book illuminates every corner it explores; it is light shed by a storyteller, who is a poet.."
- Patricia Lee Lewis - Patchwork Farm Retreats - A Kind of Yellow

"This is what I predict: that you the reader will read all of the poems in Sue Lawley’s collection in one gulp. That you will read some of them twice, memorize at least two, and send favorite ones to all your friends. I predict that you will recognize the narrator of these poems as much as you would recognize an old friend."
