"Read and be soothed. Dancing on the Page is a collection that reminds us of the generational memory power of music-that songs have always helped humans "to remember important stories", to make sense of our lives by bringing the order of an album (or a manuscript) to our experiences. As B. Elizabeth Beck moves fluidly through time in these poems, she offers the reader wisdom across the soundtrack of her life. "Nobody else will ever remember / you. Everyone too consumed / in their own reality..." We are free then-to dance, to deeply feel, to let go of what does not serve our song-the wrong husband might just introduce us to the right band. Beck makes an argument for music being the tool through which we most vividly experience memory; here we are reminded that 'music makes sense.'" -Amelia Martens, author of The Spoons in the Grass are There to Dig a Moat
