A father-daughter poetry & art collaboration. Each letter of the alphabet, from A-Z, is represented by a poem beginning with that letter, some complemented by drawings, from Apple to Zucchini. "All of Stanley H. Barkan's poems are seeded in his heart, in his soul.... His work is accessible and lyrical and often coloured by a wisdom as profound and as echoing as that of Robert Frost." --Peter Thabit Jones "Stanley Barkan is the Jewish Dylan Thomas." --Barbara Holland "[Barkan's] poems remind me of a Cezanne still life. . . . he evokes smells and huner the way William Carlos Williams did with his poem about munching on plums. . . . These triumphal poems nourish the soul." --Hal Sirowitz "Stanley Barkan has a way with him that tends to get the best out of people and out of words." --Gregory Rabassa "Between Mia Barkan Clarke's beautiful drawings and Stanley Barkan's exquistie poems, this is a gem of a book." --Maria Mazziotti Gillan
