BOOK REVIEW

Released: April 1, 1999

"In her first book, Hehenberger takes a literal route, anchoring every poem in domestic scenes of family and friends; the deep colors and finely sculpted forms become set pieces for Berry's earthbound images. (Picture book. 5-9)"
Leaving behind much of the lyricism found in his previous collections, Berry (First Palm Trees, 1997, etc.) pens poems in the voices of a sister, Dreena (who has the magical name), and brother, Delroy, on their experiences in the family with a dour sister, mother ("A teacher, Mom has lots of pens/and home and school jobs"), and father, who "drives a train,/sometimes in a heavy jacket."

THE WATER CHILDREN by Anne Berry
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 8, 2012

"Berry's writing is so gorgeous—sometimes lush, but just as often painfully precise while capturing in stark detail the emotions within a moment—that it is easy to forgive the hokier elements of the plot."
In this contemporary take on Charles Kingsley's Victorian Christian classic The Water-Babies, British novelist Berry (The Hungry Ghosts, 2009) echoes the original's fairytale lyricism while emphasizing psychology over morality as it follows four emotionally damaged British children whose lives intersect as adults.
