The Cabinet

In these poems Linda Jackson takes an unsentimental journey through a lifetime’s mindings and findings, making a mind-map of a daughter’s steps in the wake of a spirited mother, gone but glowing still, “the angel’s share […] still there”, the well-chosen words of both women sparkling through the glass cabinet of curiosities, personal effects poetically rendered, the leaves and leavings of a life lived with an eye to the silver ship that sails beyond the hardship, determined to look back on the hardest part and laugh. This is a priceless collection that will work miracles on glass eyes. (Professor Willy Maley)
