About the book:

The experience of aging and the care of the elderly is the subject of Glen Sorestads poignant new volume of poetry. In Today I Belong to Agnes the Saskatchewan poet chronicles the final years of an elderly parent with deep insight, compassion and also humour. Like poets of old, Sorestad narrates the saga of a journey that many must confront -- a journey from independence to increasing degrees of care for aging loved ones. With wry sensitivity Glen Sorestad reveals the very human side of this process - the leaving of a family home, the eccentric sisterhood of a care homes residents, and the fragile thread of memory that sustains a life. Today I Belong to Agnes belongs on the bookshelf of anyone dealing with such transitions or simply those who can appreciate the ability of poetry to illuminate the shadowy reaches of our human process.
