Author Mary Macky says of Grace Marie Grafton’s book, Jester, it “links us to a communal imagination which transcends the conventional limits of both poetry and the fine arts. Jester is more than a collection of poetry. It’s a powerful, lyrical, on-going conversation between the personal and the universal.”
The book performs the function of the jester, helping the reader, via humor and irony, to recognize and acknowledge the more disturbing, woeful aspects of human life as well as the beautifully ridiculous.

Grace Marie Grafton is the author of seven collections of poetry, the most recent being Jester from Hip Pocket Press. Her poems have won prizes from Bellingham Review, Anderbo, SF PEN chapter Soul Making contest, Sycamore Review and others. She worked as a California Poet In the Schools for over three decades and was named Teacher of the Year by the River Of Words youth poetry contest co-sponsored by former US Poet Laureate Robert Hass.
