Poetry. Women's Studies. SIMULTANEOUS WINDOWS is a metaphoric and narrative journey, both personal and political, in which rebellion, love and loss open windows to change. Each window is a frame that through which we see the limits and possibilities of one small life. The voice is strong and the journey vivid. Poems are located in Toronto, Borneo, The Middle East, Rwanda and elsewhere.
"With passion and intelligence, Mary Corkery opens SIMULTANEOUS WINDOWS onto times and terrain both local and global, strange and familiar. She crafts empathy and a keen eye for detail into poems that are fresh, relevant."—Robert Priest
