Helen Cadbury's Forever, Now charts the lives of extraordinary, ordinary humans, including the poet herself; but also those she has lived among, worked with, observed on buses and trains or discovered in the archives. Sometimes those true beginnings spiral into fiction, sometimes they remain autobiographical, as they tell moving and universal stories of love and loss, grief and new beginnings.
Emily Dickinson wrote that 'forever is comprised of nows'. This collection will affirm the sense that 'now' is the only thing we truly have – and reveal it as something to be celebrated and acknowledged, not least in this remarkable book, which offers Helen's devoted readership a chance to discover the full breadth of her compassion for characters and talent for telling their stories.
