Booing Death brings you into the artist’s whirl through her own grief and loss when family relations are less than ideal. In thirty lyrical verses Pamela doesn’t just question death, her own and everyone else’s, she spars with the whole concept. Her monologues, dialogues, poems and stories take you on a ride through states that line the road to our notorious destination: tender feelings and chaos, indignation, rage, wishful fancies, blessed humor, hope, and, perhaps, acceptance.

With her characteristic sensitivity, wit, and self-revelation, Pamela takes us on a linguistic ride through this complex emotional terrain. While reading the book, I laughed, I cried, I nodded in agreement, and, most of all, I was thankful for all that Pamela Sackett gave of herself to me and every other reader.
