I found An Iceberg in Paradise particularly touching on many levels. As we baby boomers age and our parents are living longer in general, we all need information and to hear others’ stories of their experiences with this, as it could well affect many of us on a very personal level. — Mark Marshall, LCSW


Dafoe, a poet, novelist, and nonfiction writer, has created a lyrical, non-linear lamentation that explores living with and without her so. Ultimately, both the reader and Dafoe mourn for the man her son was, as well as the man he was in the process of becoming.

 — Rachel Dickinson, author of The Loneliest Places
