The Apricot Memoirs
The Apricot Memoirs
“Women are beginning to speak in so many ways, but one of the most exciting moments for me personally is when they sing in the sound of poetry and creative prose. Tess Guinery’s language and form are reminiscent of R.M. Rilke and Nayyirah Waheed, and she is distinguishing herself through a voice that continuously pours contemplation in an unhurried and hopeful stream. The Apricot Memoirs as a collection is like a psaltry for the dreamer within us, and it’s hard to read these pages without feeling close to the woman herself. Guinery has taken her gaze for design and transformed the seeing eye into the eloquent pen. I’m excited for women everywhere to benefit from a writer who is like the wise older sister we all wished we had. Maybe we still do.” — Teresa Archer, Managing Editor at Darling Magazine.

THE APRICOT MEMOIRS—A FUSION OF CREATIVITY, PROSE & POETRY; BIRTHED WITHIN A SEASON OF TRAVEL & ADVENTURE—A SURRENDER FROM THE GREAT FOR THE EVEN GREATER.
She was created to be sketched on. Accustomed to tears, sunlight fade and whisky stains, her corners— curled. Wild flowers are pressed between her textures, and with spontaneous page selections, she gifts— a fragrant, timely word. Her pilgrimage: one set of golden hands to another, giving what is needed— a word in season. She is a creation. A song to be shared. Silent breaths kept for, a quiet place.
Open her with an open heart—her story will leave you a gift, write it down but most of all, let its sentiment provoke a real change.
