Please take care of this book: The parable of topsy


    As the world scurries ahead into electrickery, there is much to revere about the hard copy book. Suzanne J.Cairns takes this moment in history to draw a parallel between the way we read our fiction these days and the way we treat our relationships. In a fast moving, technologically driven world, Suzanne urges us to stop awhile and be kinder to things that have moved us, that have taken us out of the mundane, opened our eyes and inspired us. Simplicity is key in these poems and pictures, a back to basics journey. Suzanne J. Cairns has always had a love affair with words, she studied them at university for three years. In fact as all those close to her will testify, she often has far too many. Writing in many guises to keep Red Riding Hood safe, she is also seduced by images, having exhibited her paintings and designed interiors over the years. In this tome these two strands of creativity collide as she leads us all into the gentle narrative of a burgeoning romance and its tortuous decline.
