EARLY RESPONSES TO "A Misted Mirror"
"A haunting, harrowing and very bravely-written memoir, presented as fiction. Gillian Jones re-discovers the man she was married to in more depth and detail than in the years of their marriage. This is a human, heartfelt read, an important book in its rawness and depth."—Patricia McCarthy, Editor, Agenda Poetry.
"This book will help anyone who is feeling guilty that they are not superhuman; not always the perfect loving carer that they would like to be."—Joy Watkins, Development Lead Uniting Carers, Dementia UK
"This book is mainly about beautiful poetry written by a man who died of dementia. It has now been crafted into prose, as 'fiction based on fact', by his widow. Gillian Jones's prose provides the setting that makes this poetry accessible to many."—Dr Nick Clarke, Consultant in Old Age Psychiatry, MBBS,MRCPsych,MD.
"This book should be on every doctor's and nurse's reading list."—Dr Catherine Brogan, MBBS MSc FFPHM
