Overview

Mary Clearman Blew is Professor of English and Creative Writing at the University of Idaho, Moscow. She is the author of Bone Deep in Landscape, Balsamroot: A Memoir, Lambing Out and Other Stories, and All But the Waltz (University of Oklahoma Press) and Sister Coyote: Montana Stories and is coeditor of Circle of Women: An Anthology of Contemporary Western Women’s Writing.

"What an honest eye Mary Clearman Blew brings to the human condition. The true-dealing clarity of her words, her unsparing insight into our losses and loves that come with being children of the human race—her pages make your breath catch in recognition. Balsamroot, simply and utterly, is the strongest kind of book, family truths woven with artistic candor."—Ivan Doig

"With precision, clarity, and devastating honesty, Blew sets before us the anguish of dementia in the aging for both the sufferer and her relatives. But the book is much larger because it deals with the shifting and interlocking relationships between women of three generations, the twining between ages. This is a magnificent book which slips its hand deep into the souls of three women."—Karen Swenson
