By Margaret Gibson

Broken Cup brings breathtaking eloquence to what Margaret Gibson describes as "traveling the best way of Alzheimer's" along with her husband, poet David McKain. After his preliminary and tentative prognosis, Gibson suspended her writing for 2 years; yet then poetry again, and the artistic approach grew to become the lightning rod that grounded her and offered a course ahead. The poems in Broken Cup undergo witness to how Alzheimer's erodes reminiscence and cognitive functionality, yet they always remember to work out what's current and to invite what may well stay of the self.

Moving and unflinchingly sincere within the acknowledgment of discomfort, frustration, and grief, the poems discover, time and time back, the grace of abiding love. Gibson supplies center in addition to voice to an event that's deeply own, but shared by way of all too many.
