Still Waters is a Poetic Memoir of the sorrows and stress of a loving daughter watching her mother deteriorate in the throes of the dreaded “disease of the decades”, Alzheimer’s Disease. It is a very poignant and emotional look at the deep cuts and lacerations it inflicts on the loved ones of the Alzheimer’s sufferer.
Kamal Parmar resides in Nanaimo.
“In a slender and tender volume, poet Kamal Parmar brings to twilight life a mother/daughter struggle with encroaching Alzheimer’s. A vital memoir in verse, Still Waters is sensitive, touching, honest, even gritty, a compelling read that asks the question: Who am I? “Am I a young girl in ponytails with stars in her eyes? Or am I an old decrepit woman with a furrowed face and a doddering gait? And yet, I cry like a baby.” A luminous book, it’s a tuning fork for families coping with Alzheimer’s and the accompanying emotional wasteland. Lovely work.”
