“Bernice Lever reports on (the lethal conflict between the sexes) with irony, realism, grim humour and an awareness of its high cost. The irony is never divorced from chair, the searing insight of the troubled heart.”
– Irving Layton
“She writes with compassion, anger and a rueful humour. She not only shows us the poetry of everyday life, she does more … she shows us its mysteriousness.”
– Miriam Waddington.
Bernice Lever’s best poems from three decades are gathered together in Blessings, her new book. With conversational puns and descriptive details, she reaches both minds and hearts.
