PoemTalk #40 on Susan Schultz's 'Dementia Blog'

Susan Schultz and her mother.

On this 40th episode of PoemTalk, Al Filreis is joined by Jamie-Lee Josselyn, Michelle Taransky and Leonard Schwartz to discuss Susan Schultz's Dementia Blog. A chronicle of her mother's deteriorating mental condition, Schultz's book is chronologically reversed in order to suggest both the format of a blog and the loss of orientation in memory and time. For more details on the discussion, see the show notes.

You can hear more poems from Dementia Blog, as well as five separate interviews with Leonard Schwarz, on Shultz's PennSound page.
