In “Paper Bones” (published by AuthorHouse), author Sherry Rentschler’s new book, readers uncover a unique collection of poems highlighting the mainstream events that shape the way people live and think.

Rentschler describes “Paper Bones” as “a collection of poems highlighting the gilt and tarnish of our lives.” She writes about such issues as divorce, HIV, death, suicide, teenage prostitution, abuse, adultery, aging and grief. Other poems lighten the mood by offering humorous takes on dieting, housecleaning, young love and childhood.

“You might say each poem is like a snapshot,” she says. “‘Paper Bones’ refers to writing down the most memorable moments that have etched themselves in our bones and make us who we are.”

Award-winning author Mary Deal says about Rentschler’s poetry, "She has the ability to give new meaning to a single word. She is gifted at turning a phrase with a double entendre that will take you by surprise."

Rentschler hopes to take readers through emotional ups and downs, giving them a lyrical perspective on her life experiences. “I want people to laugh with me, nod in agreement, be angry with the terrible side of our society and discover something that will remain with them long after the book is finished,” she says. “We learn the best lessons from living and keeping an open mind.”
