Book: Stars in the Junkyard

Author: Sharon Berg

Synopsis:

In 124 pages, the book covers 1983 to 2019, a long hiatus from publishing. Maureen Hynes reveals:

Stars in the Junkyard is a book of perceptive truth-telling. With clarity, purpose and skill, Sharon Berg examines losses, traumas, betrayals—both personal and political. Especially precious are the small moments of tenderness in this collection, those between a mother and her child, or between lovers—these are the “stars” glinting in the night darkness over a junkyard, or the “diamonds on black silk.” Berg’s vision extends widely across continents, and is especially compelling and compassionate in her long poem about the 1990 Oka crisis.
