“Like an enticing garden, Victoria Doerper’s debut volume of poems is full of surprises: tumbling insight tucked in somber reflection, the celebratory alongside the cautionary. Open this book anywhere and find poems that chart pain, evoke pleasure, offer whimsy and describe nature in short, bright, stunning metaphors. In form, these poems are eclectic. In content, they are magical, full of astute observation worthy of Emily Dickinson. Lucky you, reader.” ~Laura Kalpakian
Victoria Doerper writes poetry and creative nonfiction from her cottage near the shore of the Salish Sea. Inspired by nature and the small things of this world, her poems examine love, loss, and wonder. Her work appears in several literary publications, including Cirque, Clover, Front Porch Review, and The Plum Tree Tavern as well as in Orion Magazine.
John Doerper is an artist whose work has appeared in juried shows. He’s also an author of award-winning books about food, wine, and travel. The burgeoning garden he created in the yard of the cottage he and Victoria share inspires many of his drawings.
