Judge Sarah Sousa write about this book, “Poet Jeffrey Bean circles the idea of human connection and want through the gaze and touch, the gaze becoming as palpable and sensual as touch. The body in Woman Putting on Pearls is essentially an isolated entity continuously seeking, not only attachment, but utter oneness with the other. The voyeur is sympathetic, pathetic and frightening all at once. Through insightful, sharp and nuanced writing, Bean holds these contradictions in his steady gaze.”
