John Reibetanz captures the ordinary details of life - family and friendship, birth and death - and transforms them into the extraordinary. His seventh book of poetry is a masterful collection, finely crafted with wit, warmth and affection.
Transformations is divided into four parts, each providing a different perspective on the main theme. Choosing not to confront but to explore, he allows for subtle revelations of a deeper truth which hover just beneath the surface, turning the world upside down and right side up again with his poetic "transformations." The result is nothing short of magical.
"A beautiful example of mature poetic power filtered through quiet reflections and subtle humour." - George Murray, Globe and Mail
