New Jersey Writer Nancy Gerber's Collection of Short Essays Just Released
By: SHANTI ARTS LLC
Gerber uses the image of a clock doing a manic waltz to explain how time changes as you age. Fleeing time's endpoint is useless; we are all mortal. So Gerber recommends taking time by the hand and dancing along with it.
The Dancing Clock is a collection of short essays or vignettes in which she talks about events in her life. Being a psychotherapist, Gerber also talks about these various events in terms of her emotions, perceptions, and values. This is the gem—a book that describes some very ordinary events through the lens of someone who has thought a lot about life's journey and the wisdom we all gain along the journey. With humor and pathos, Gerber explores themes of motherhood, daughterhood, writing, and reconciliation as she reflects on growing up—and growing older—in the Garden State.
Nancy Gerber's previous books are A Way Out of Nowhere: Short Stories (Big Table Publishing, 2018); Losing a Life: A Daughter's Memoir of Caregiving (Hamilton, 2005); and Fire and Ice: Poetry and Prose (Arseya, 2014), named a Notable Book in Poetry in the Shelf Unbound Indie Books Competition. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, Mom Egg Review, Adanna Literary Journal, Forge, Persimmon Tree, and elsewhere. She received a Ph.D. in English from Rutgers University, an M.A. in psychoanalysis from the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis–
