Review Quotes

“In All Grown Up Now, Kim Russell’s poetry echoes experiences reflected in old family photos many of us have glued into scrapbooks. Mr. Whippy’s ice cream van, sheets flapping on clothes lines, grandmother’s kitchen covered in snowstorms of flour. Russell’s imagery gently reminds us of the ultimate comings and goings in our own lives. From mixed emotions as parent-of-the-bride, to watching our own mother’s face fade from our life. Russell’s way with words invites us into her life but, more importantly, has us remembering ours.”— Lillian Hallberg, Author and Poet

“Kim Russell’s collection of poems is a captivating journey into her world. It’s a colourful brush painting evocative language, memories, and keen observations. Each verse is a poetic portrait that touches the heart and inspires the reader to reconnect with their own memories. It speaks to the wonders of life, its joys, tears and smiles. All Grown Up Now is a must-read.”— Marilyn Braendeholm, Author and Poet

“Kim M. Russell’s new pamphlet, All Grown Up Now, is a sensory delight, filled with the remembered scents, color, and snapshot images of her life from early childhood to mature adult years. It is a sort of poetic memoir. In rhymed and unrhymed poems, the collection conveys images and impressions of the poet’s life, beginning with her mostly happy childhood memories in post-WWII England, where some still suffered symptoms from living through the Blitz.”— Merril D. Smith, Author, River Ghosts

“Kim Russell gives us a collection that is like rummaging through a box of old photographs. There’s a memory attached to each one, and she shares these memories with detailed accuracy, whether it’s a cold walk to school or her daughter’s wedding day. Kim has the knack of making the reader feel nostalgic for a life they didn’t have – these poems evoke emotions that could only come from experience. They are as finely crafted as a “baking day delicacy” and full of “names like holy prayers”. We move from Kim’s earliest childhood to reflections on motherhood and grandmotherhood. And, at the end, she points us towards the future. A treasure trove of poems.”— Sarah Connor, Author, The Crow Gods
