The publishers have kindly made available to me Paula Green's excellent introduction which follows, along with four of my favourite poems from the book. Enjoy.
Love — that complicated, delicious, pleasurable, necessary feeling — ties us to another human, to a mother, father, son, daughter, sibling, lover or friend. Love can also tie us to a place, an experience, an object. We love and we are loved; unexpectedly, gloriously, painfully, deeply.
Ending and going home
