Olivia shared a statement regarding the book. She stated, “Here on the shore, 20 years later, my message in a bottle has reached dry land. Words about our life, his death but mostly love and our journey to the end.”
So, the poems will explore “the emotional connection” of the Harrisons’ relationship. It will reflect the intimacy of the couple by sharing some never-before-seen images of the romantic couple.
Martin Scorsese who directed several documentaries about George shared his view. He said, “Olivia evokes the most fleeting gestures and instants, plucked from the flow of time and memory and felt through her choice of words and the overall rhythm. Martin also added, “She might have done an oral history or a memoir. Instead, she composed a work of poetic autobiography.”
