Nurses Who Love English

Nurses Who Love English COOMER, Paula Marie

In Nurses Who Love English, Paula Marie Coomer chronicles the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks to the emergence of war and a life wobbling under the impact of world events: the loss of livelihood, a year of unemployment, record gasoline prices and mega-inflation, and a return to hospital nursing after having been a contracted university instructor, with its accompanying strain on a 50-year-old body. In the shadows, events that should have been celebrations become emotional struggles--the empty nest, children marrying and becoming parents themselves, finding late-life love. Lyrical, emotional, and, in the words of award-winning poet Paisley Rekdal, ""at once carefully wrought and yet full of spontaneity . . . both tough-minded yet fragile,"" the poems in this collection are powerful, graceful, and reveal the conflicting perspectives of a poet of Midwest upbringing who hails from a Kentucky mountain heritage, independent-minded yet vulnerable, a woman struggling to survive a difficult time in history alone in the rural Intermountain West. Paula Coomer's fiction, poetry, and non-fiction have appeared in many journals, anthologies, and publications, including Gargoyle, Knock, and the acclaimed Northwest Edge series from Portland's Chiasmus Press.
