This powerful collection of poems spans the major stages of a woman's life-adolescence, early marriage and divorce, single motherhood, family life and its dissolution, late love, encroaching mortality, and the mysterious, obsessive, and ultimately healing returns of early trauma-and does so with an equally tenacious sense of the sanctity of this moment, and this one alone, in all its redeeming particulars. "We want to know," writes the poet, "what is pushing us, what is drawing us, and what is letting us, time and time, and time again, go. . ." There can be no other poet like Heather Tosteson, no other who strives so genuinely to take so much into account. She sees "every one of us in this world holding/. . .an enormous universe of feeling," and her lines do not describe this universe but mesh with it. She does not witness the world, she bears it. Hers is the grandest and most honorable ambition, to render without violation "life's silky, staining patina." What an immense revelation The Sanctity of the Moment is! How admirable the revealer! -Fred Chappell, Shadow Box, Backsass, Family Gathering, Midquest, winner of the Bollingen Prize in Poetry, T.S. Eliot Prize, and Aiken Taylor Award. The Sanctity of the Moment presents the haunting chronicle of a woman/ mother/daughter/lover confronting both the terrible and the beautiful. Dense, intense, and exquisitely formed, these poems, crafted by a brave and unflinching intelligence, teach us much about struggle, compassion and affirmation. There are hard truths contained within these pages-hard truths and unforgettable writing. -Kat Meads, Quizzing the Dead Heather Tosteson's poems elicit gasps of thankful recognition: I too have struggled with that anger, experienced that joy, felt that despair, known that sadness. Ms. Tosteson's poetic deconstruction of what it means to see the face of God is fearless. In the instant I finished reading The Sanctity of the Moment, I believed my life had meaning. -Toni Press-Coffman, playwright, Touch, Stand, We're Here to Help HEATHER TOSTESON is the author of Visible Signs, God Speaks My Language, Can You? and Hearts as Big as Fists. She has published poetry extensively in literary magazines, received the Nation/Discovery prize in poetry and fellowships for poetry, fiction, and photography from MacDowell, Yaddo, VCCA and Hambidge. She holds an M.F.A. in Creative Writing (UNC-Greensboro) and Ph.D. in English and Creative Writing(Ohio University).
