Generally speaking, my collections 'circle' around something, providing me with a wide berth for treatment. So with the exception of the few things of which I have more certainty, as in my collections A Sense of The Ridiculous' or I Is Always You Is Me.—certainties which don't need a prefix verb, the subject of woman demands circling around it. 'Woman' means half the planetary population. I would hope to reach all ages but I suspect that this particular collection will speak most to the mature woman, the woman who has begun to notice her aging processes."

As in To The Child Mystic (Authorhouse), Circling Round Woman is an unintentional memoir-cum-instruction book in poetic form: sharply observational, pragmatic, personal; nonchalantly, funnily and unscientifically scientific. Women friends of the author have commented that some of the poems have changed their lives, they being able to identify themselves with the theme. "When you can identify with a thing, you feel its universality and you feel accepted", say Ms Corwin.

Circling Round Woman is concrete; easy reading, deep reading; philosophical and playful all at once. Circling Round Woman makes you laugh, cry and remember. It reminds you of who you are and what you are becoming.
