The long-awaited and resplendent new poetry collection by Tess Gallagher, whose poems "are a gift of a poet's heart and soul to her readers" (Robert Coles) "" "Don' t sharpen them. Expectation, more dangerous than any blade. - " Knives in the Borrowed House" " Fourteen years after "Moon Crossing Bridge"--Tess Gallagher' s powerful elegies for her husband, Raymond Carver- "Dear Ghosts," is the return of Gallagher' s unequivocal voice. In these new poems, the ghosts of the past are conjured as part of the present day: the deceased beloved, the father long dead, the ailing mother, the victims of holocaust and war. With these spirits beside her, Gallagher confronts her own illness and mortality, and celebrates love and friendship in these spare lyrics and muscular narratives, each punctuated by her resilience and grace. Here is the new work by one of America' s most accomplished poets

Portable kisses : love poems by Tess Gallagher( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I've always been fascinated by Tess Gallagher's poetry. In Portable Kisses, she convincingly provides condensed librettos of lovers' patterns of approach and retreat. The poems sometimes have a mythic quality, while at other times the poet all but steps aside to wink at us and to acknowledge the power of mind over matter as it intrudes itself into even the most romantic myths. It's a book filled with beauty, energy, and surprise. --Ann Beattie

"Robert, a blind man and now a widower, has come to visit his friend and her husband. Prompted by a television show, the apprehensive husband asks Robert if he really knows what a cathedral is: his answer is a lesson in how truly to see.

An interview follows with Carver's widow, Tess Gallagher, whose poem 'The hands of the blindman' is excerpted in the production"--Container
