More > 1970's Australia. It was a time when cooking oil was an acceptable sunscreen.

One Foot in the Grave By R. A. Christmas

We all die—but we all die differently. It's not death's certainty, but it's unpredictability, that troubles us—the when, where, and how of death, rather than the fact. Whether our... More > deaths come by accident, illness, old-age, or other people, it's always too late to turn back—hopefully not writhing in agony or blubbering like cowards. “Death,” according to poet Wallace Stevens, “is the mother of beauty”--and these poems, beautiful and not. Most are meditations on what (or who) kills us--and what makes that killing somehow endurable—faith, a sense of humor, honesty, and courage. This poet is an often married Mormon man, growing older (but perhaps not up). He writes about the things and people in his life, as artfully as he's able. But he doesn't know a danged thing more about his death than you do about yours.< Less

More > which she developed over more than 90 years before her death in 2017. From her formative days growing up on Staten Island, New York, to her years at Cornell University, through the World War II years, and on to life as it unfolded, she writes with a thoughtful, creative style.

Years later, Marie eloped with a concert violinist who melodiously transformed her life for the next twenty-five years, and two children gave her the opportunity to experience one of her greatest joys: motherhood. She also shares lessons from her greatest challenges.< Less
