Margaret J. McMaster
SILVER MEDAL for The Exact Likeness of Living Persons in the Reader Views Literary Awards!
The Exact Likeness of Living Persons has won a SILVER MEDAL in the Reader Views Literary Awards!
Wry observations on friendship, the fragility of love and survival, and the unfathomable scope of human behaviour in a collection of poems, short stories, a play, and a song. Included in the ensemble is the tale of a WW2 bomber crew's daring escape; a complicated romance in a retirement residence; and, the youthful lament of a tangled friendship.
The Exact Likeness of Living Persons swings from the laughable and ironic, to the deadly serious, much like life itself.
"Margaret J. McMaster is aware of the darkness that threads through all our lives. There is light, too - and humour - but she refuses to look away from the difficulties, the obstacles, the hard truths. Her poems and prose compel us to focus, to pay attention, to look below the surface of things." Paul Nicholas Mason, author of The Rogue Wave and The Night Drummer
