"Marian Kelner writes from a wide-open, all-embracing heart and shares her love of this world in poetry and prose." -- Ceacy Henderson, Columnist for Shelburne Falls Independent
"Marian Kelner writes from a wide-open, all-embracing heart and shares
her love of this world in poetry and prose. If you are moved by
compassion and kindness for animals and the foibles of family-- if you
can laugh at yourself and find humor in everyday ironies, if you strive
to live fully in the walking and dreaming world -- then you will find a
kindred spirit in these pages. I know I have. "
-- Ceacy Henderson, columnist for The Shelburne Falls Independent
Marian's Kelner's latest book is like opening a door to a down home
banquet. The stories, essays, and poems are savory offerings bursting
with insight, wisdom, and wry, witty humor. Dive in and enjoy!"
--Eve Brown-Waite, author of First Comes Love, The Comes Malaria
Kelner's writing always moves me. From the gentle steadfast voice of
Mouse the cat in the Letters series; to the counterbalance quietly woven
through each piece, her writing stays with me long after I've put it
down. Marian's voice is one which echoes deep like a canyon, and salves
my oft conflicted human heart."
--Julie Payne Britton, memoirist and poet
