This collection of poems stresses Lifshin's simultaneous affinity for the physical present and the histories objects often reveal, as portals into our surviving memories of family or romance and love lost, as in "Photograph" or "The Kind of Man." Published just five years into her 41-year career as a published poet and writer, Paper Apples offers a personal glance into the emotional complexities of "The Queen of Modern Romance Poetry" in her passionate youth.
