Books Info:

The Skiers: Selected Poems free pdf "The Skiers: Selected Poems" is a selection from Jill Bialosky's three published collections. Drawing on her experiences of childhood and adolescence, of childbirth and death, of motherhood, love and sexuality, she creates poems that are at once moving, unflinchingly honest and marked by a consummate technical skill. She has been described by Gerald Stern as 'the poet of the secret garden, the place, at once, of grace and sadness' and her poetry has a dignity, a magic and a passion that makes it utterly distinctive.
