Beneath the surface activities of a traditional life a woman voices  her hunger to grow beyond her heritage towards something-other-than.  For excerpts click here.

“In the hands of a skillful poet, the ordinary is never the ordinary. Linda Cassidy’s life-long quest for being made new by the poem and making the poem new is a delightful read. Of her mattress she writes “It’s naked flesh bulges in spots/sags in others ... Stripped clean of its clothing ..I’m embarrassed by its lack of dignity” .... The verve and vivacity of this poetic narrative makes you want to read this collection again and again.”

Betsy Warland, author of Breathing the Page: Reading the Act of Writing, Program Director, The Writer’s Studio, Simon Fraser University



Linda Cassidy’s poetry is readable, memorable and beautiful. Vivid images, - Elvis’ voice flying through the airwaves, a robin on your front lawn, the number 11 - evoke sensations that seem familiar but lead us into places we haven’t been before, where we find nuggets of truth we can slip into our pockets and take away with us.” Thomas Scott, Poet, author of How Things Got Like This
