Críticas: "Exceptional . . . [As a hospice worker, Joseph] called on everything in her experience in order to be with the dying. We can be grateful for that work, calling upon everything to give sorrow a voice.""Vancouver Sun"
"Intricate and beautiful . . . Provides an intimate language for grief and makes death a site of wonder as much as pain. . . . In her careful prose, her encounters with the dead, dying and mourning take on a kind of grace.""National Post"
"In the Slender Margin" is intended as an exploration rather than a balm or solace, though it will no doubt be those things for some people. Its resonance comes, rather, from its intelligent open-endedness, its unflinching, simultaneous embrace of death s reality and persistent mystery. "Globe and Mail"
A fine blend of memoir, contemplation, and reporting by a woman who spent more than 20 years as a counselor in a Victoria, British Columbia, hospice. Joseph, an award-winning Canadian poet, explores the interconnections between death, language, and art. . . . The author writes with humor and grace, lines of other poets appear frequently in her text, and references to films, books, plays, and pop music abound. . . . This is not a how-to book, however; grieving readers will not find a road map to closure, but they can join a curious mind in a journey of exploration. A literate, free-association meditation on the final fact of life. "Kirkus Reviews""

Eve Joseph is quite simply a remarkable writer. Not only does she capture the painful and peaceful intimacy of death and dying in her book, "In the Slender Margin, " but she fuses together the stark reality of today s healthcare system, with Hindu philosophy, great literature, lyrical poetry, world history and moreall linked with searing and unforgettable personal reflections. Lee Gutkind, editor, creative nonfiction

Luminous . . . Readers will discover an entire book full of such intuitive and satisfying musings. "Publishers Weekly"
Eve Joseph has a poet s sensibility, a well-stocked mind, a sturdy practicality and a wry sense of humor. She s also a born storyteller. For all these reasons, I can t think of a better companion for the tricky, profound territory between life and deaththe slender margin. Katherine Ashenburg, author of "The Mourner s Dance: What We Do When People Die"
Elegant, coruscating and wise. Dionne Brand
Like all great writers, Eve Joseph uses memory, research, and experience to explore the unknown. Her subject is deaththe biggest mystery of all. A memoir based on the early death of her brother and the twenty years she spent working in palliative care, "In the Slender Margin" is a wise and lyrical meditation. Drawing on literature and memorial traditions and practices from around the world, this engaging book opens a conversation with readers that lingers long after the last page is turned. Sandra Martin, author of "Working the Deadbeat: 50 Lives that Changed Canada"
With a poet's honest eye, from decades on the slender margin, Eve Joseph has done the miraculous, shining a light into everyone s ultimate darkness. Her quest is respectful, wise, and contagious. In all seriousness, I have never enjoyed death so much. Bill Gaston, author of "The World" and "Juliet Was a Surprise"
"Offering both practicality and an exceptional sensitivity to the inherently confounding subject of death, "In the Slender Margin" is a soothing balm to any readergrieving or not." "PsychCentral.com"
