This book is a candidate “work of art," with few equals in our time. Informed by an adult lifetime in and near the Gurdjieff teaching, Martha Heyneman’s exceptional clarity of mind and skill with words guide readers through a deeply personal journey, focused on the author’s late husband and leading to universal perspectives. To reveal oneself candidly does not necessarily chart a path toward communicating love, but these clear-minded poems prove the possibility of artfully combining both.
