Expectation Days by Sandra McPherson
Book DescriptionFrom movie making to medical misadventures, meditations on widowhood to feminist protestations, Expectation Days is a dazzling portrayal of instances in Sandra McPherson\u2019s life. Her autobiographical collection uses peculiar and exact language to reflect on a wide range of activities that include grouse hunting, going through airport security after 9/11, and climbing a coastal cliff. From being an unintended child to ceremonializing a lifetime \u201cserved,\u201d McPherson speaks in both clear and distressing voices from the state of speechless fear that is bereavement. Will the little figures ever reach the monument? A doctor orders me to be on watch. Will the mist pass over their cheeks and clear the strollers\u2019 eyes? If so, I\u2019ll see it. I\u2019m on watch. I train my eyes on paintings to see if there is any change. --from \u201cOn Suicide Watch\u201d
