This Time

I'm not used to promoting myself.

Even when I've been part of an anthology, I promote for the collective, the greater good.


But this time it's just me.


Cover Reveal 
From Vine Leaves Press




Time and Circumstance
by Theresa Milstein

Publication date: March, 2017

“The trunk of this family is lost to history / Photo fragments remain as shadows”

With subtle wit, and poignant imagery, the unrelenting passage of time connects the  vignettes in Theresa Milstein’s Time and Circumstance. This reflective collection of real and imagined poetry and prose, speculates on an erratic childhood, the uncertainty of adolescence, and the reality of parenthood, through flashbacks of love lost and found.

“This everyday, why again, sometimes / ignored tune has measured time in notes, / seconds, minutes, days, years, and so it goes. / It’s a measure of the man he will become.”

  10. Congratulations. I love the cover and title. I went to the Amazon site you posted on Goodreads to order it, but there's no record of the book. Maybe because it's not out yet. I was planning to pre-order it. Let me know when it finally is published.
