In the Garden of Absence
by Stella Pierides
Stella Pierides' collection of poetry/haiku "In the Garden of Absence" takes you on a journey echoing the author's childhood. Yet it does so in the context of adult concerns, uncertainties, and anxieties—as well as pleasures. This book explores the existential fear of loneliness, the many facets of absence, and glimpses a path towards bearing absence and being creatively alone.
