Shades of Sorrow, Tears and Laughter

by Beatrice Fri Bime

This is a poignant book of witty, reflective, sophisticated, and subversive poems that find meaning in unexpected places. From the woman who reminisces about a past she has left in order to move forward, the last thoughts of a young man in a land in turmoil, the girl who faces hurt and betrayal, to the dead man who visits his funeral and mocks the mourners - teaching us vital lessons about life and death, Beatrice Fri Bime offers her readers a loaded assortment of poetic verse. Shades of Sorrow, Tears and Laughter is packed with satirical humour, laced with a wide variety of themes that address societal vices and virtues, pain, regret, greed, bigotry, and their consequences.

"However light in tone and simple in style, Beatrice Fri Bime's poetry is very loud and deeply penetrating. It explores myriads of contemporary themes which compel everyone to be guilty of one shortcoming in their character or the other. If you don't have a mirror, use this poetry book as a mirror to see yourself in it - and reconsider your stance in many aspects of day-to-day life."
