"In reading Tana’s poems I have been amazed at how they came directly into my heart and sat down beside me and somehow, for some unknown reason, we wept." –Joy Kogawa

Scenes of remembrance expose the landscape of family life. Each poem is a sacrificial canvas depicting a "persistent and influential" moment in the life of a young daughter as she grows up to be a sister, lover, poet, wife and mother who "pleads forgiveness" from her parents, now that they – in accordance with the world’s pulse – are preparing to die.

"This is a very fine book, full of wisdom and compassion and a dazzlement of language that will make you go back to read individual poems again and again. The air they breathe 'is dipped in glass, / clear and incisive.'" –Leona Gom

"Unflinching and compassionate, her poignant lyrics move seamlessly from the page into your heart. No detours. And, as only the finest poems can, these ones inspire us to consider – and re-consider – our own responses to this world." –Sandy Shreve
This is Tana Runyan’s first book.
