ABOUT THE BOOK


all things small  is a book of poems that speak to marriage, divorce, dementia, grief and all the small treasures that mark a life. Divided into five parts, the collection takes its readers on an emotional journey that reverberates with honesty, depth and familiarity. Sticky with the juice of jealousy, fragrant with lust, tasting of sorrow, and aching with tenderness, these poems invite the reader into the speaker’s home, gardens, and dinner table to rejoice in the beauty within.

TESTIMONIALS

In all things small, Susan J. Atkinson creates magic in the intensity of her poetry. The reader experiences moments of love and loss, as well as joy and hope, all the promise life has to offer us! Nature becomes a focus, a guide. We need to learn how to pay attention, to listen.
~ Mary Ann Mulhern, 2019–2022 Windsor Poet Laureate

In all things small, Susan J. Atkinson cuts domesticity, memory, and grief down to size in poems that call attention to “this dark time that should / be easy to leave behind.” But nothing is ever easy, even as love and beauty abound. Atkinson knows this, and with formal elegance and telescopic detail, enumerates life’s intensities in poems that brim with both hurt and overwhelming joy. 

~ Jim Johnstone, Author of The King of Terrors

In this stormy, resonant collection, the natural, the erotic, and the tragic tangle. Light shifts over these poems as love and grief enlace. Susan J. Atkinson’s finely crafted work drew me into a mode of ardent noticing. Keep an eye out for the cheeky humour here that sprouts up from even the darkest moments! 
~ Margo LaPierre, Author of Washing Off the Raccoon Eyes
