Meg Eden’s The Girl Who Came Back is a collection of narrative poems that circle around a Mother’s love of an amusement park that has been destroyed by time and urban sprawl. The Mother’s recollections are shared with the daughter, until the love of the past amusement park becomes a shared fantasy. Eden asks us to consider the way experience shapes memory and the way memory shapes reality. It begs to question the importance of shared narratives. This is a collection of what happens when Sleeping Beauty and Snow White become your childhood friends in a life that is lived standing outside windows, dreaming of the inside.
