My Grandmother Smokes Chesterfields By Sharon Waller Knutson
Paperback: $7.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
The chapbook My Grandmother Smokes Chesterfields is a raw and honest collection of poems that tells the story of a strong independent woman raised in the forties and fifties in a small town in... More > Montana until her fictionalized death in the last two poems. The poems, mostly biographical and some fiction, explore relationships that shape who we are today and the heartbreaks and strengths of dealing with life, alcoholism, aging, illness and death, including our own. I didn’t realize until I wrote these poems how much I was greatly influenced by the strong women in my life: my mother, my mother-in-law and my two grandmothers who were as different as coffee and cream. The title poem is about my maternal grandmother who was uneducated, married at fifteen, a farmer's wife and stay at home mother of ten. I've also included poems about my paternal grandmother who was a school teacher and business woman and mother of two. I inherited the best part of both of them.< Less

Poetry is but one way for the roadside observer to record the parade of sensations that pass each day.
