Critical Commentary

“In small bright lines Sher articulates life’s momentary illuminations and then the moving on, the letting go of everything: youth, dreams, old visions, realizations, and, inevitably, life itself.  The book is a chambered nautilus.”
Dr. Megan McClard, Professor Emeritus, Metropolitan State College of Denver

“Although poems of self-discovery may be common fare, these spare verses go to the core of life as Diana Sher shows readers variations on cutting the cord…Hope resides in this collection.”
Dr. Jackie Swensson, Conference on English Education, National Council of Teacher’s of English

After I Cut the Cord offers quietly provocative insights into many of life’s small moments--the kind of moments most of us overlook entirely.”
