About Impressionism:

"What struck me immediately about the poems in Impressionism is their profound sense of longing. 'I want to step out of my life into a painting,' the poet says, and that is exactly what some of these poems achieve. Although we get hints of a domestic existence that is both blessed and cursed, the line between life and art is blurred so successfully that what finally emerges is the transformative power of the senses. Reading these poems, one does indeed step out of one's life and into a world o light, color, even odor and taste—and all so vividly portrayed in language that manages to convey both solace and delight."
—Sue Ellen Thompson
