"An accomplished Egyptologist, Carla Day's affectionate-but-confused elderly father now lives in a fusion of past and present at an upscale assisted living facility. Then a string of suspicious events unravels at the home, and Carla, hoping to keep a close eye on her dad, takes a job there. But management has one condition: Spy for us, figure out who's doing this, and you and your father can stay ... Soon, terrible things happen-and Carla's father rambles not only about Egypt, but also about a dead woman on the nearby beach. The answer may lie in an ancient Egyptian tomb. Or maybe it's somewhere further-buried deep in the recesses of a brilliant old man's memory"--Publisher description
Mothersongs : poems for, by, and about mothers( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unique collection of verse about maternity and the celebration of motherhood, MotherSongs brings together for the first time a range of classic and contemporary poems from the United States, Great Britain, and Canada by some of our most memorable writers. The editors have included traditional ballads about maternity and courtly elegies for or by mothers as well as landmark nineteenth-century tributes to mothers and early twentieth-century meditations on motherhood. MotherSongs opens with poems about pregnancy, labor, delivery, and nursing and moves to poems about women raising children, delighting in their growth, or mourning their loss. The volume then turns to poems by sons and daughters who "remember mama."

The power to change geography by Diana O'Hehir( Book )

10 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writing about poetry Diana Ó Hehir says, ""I think of poetry as harnessed energy-as a marvelous way of taking the chaotic emotion, the turbulent perception, and recreating them as images that are specific, definite, directed. Miraculously, when this process works, it's one of expansion rather than diminution; the fortunate poet can reach out beyond the walls of separate personality into a general air that everyone breathes. I think of my own poetry as intense, imagistic, surreal, and personal, and try to write about perceptions which have pushed me toward change or renewal."" For the last s

Spells for not dying again : poems by Diana O'Hehir( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of 1997 Prix d'Assisi from the Arts International Workshop. Patterned after the mysterious enchantments in the Egyptian Book of the Dead, O'Hehir's poetry examines daunting, age-old themes -- loss, reconciliation, and regeneration. --Eastern Washington University Press. No one else combines worldly wryness with the eerie, spacey overtones of human feeling -- represented, here, by the grotesque yet haunting imagery of the ancient Egyptian afterlife -- in quite her inimitable way. --Alan Williamson. The poems speak with unsettling candor, awe and terror; miraculously they are also full of compassion and a wry, mordant humor. The rhythms of deeply felt mystery are here, stunned into words. --Dabney Stuart
