Description

Caring for an aging father diagnosed with Alzheimer's stirs a multitude of experiences and feelings. Poet and photographer Peter Maeck approaches this extremely difficult time of life with extraordinary mindfulness and compassion. In rhyming verse and his own photographs Maeck depicts how he and his father "moved from a prose relationship into one of poetry . . . less literal and more metaphorical . . . engaging more in rhyme than in reason." Remembrance of Things Present is an important book for our time as dementia nears epidemic proportions; it is wisdom gleaned from facing one of life's most horrific afflictions with word, image, and love.
