Review of Arne Weingart’s UNPRACTICAL THINKING

2020-02-15T00:11:52-07:00

Arne Weingart deals in a wisdom born of the quotidian. From doorbells to jeans to caterpillars, in language equal parts sardonic and sublime, he goads us to look at ourselves and consider “whatever we are” in relation to giant subterranean mushrooms, Jimi Hendrix and Mozart, or “the very breath of God.” This may be uncomfortable, he agrees. We may have to accept that we

Miriam Sagan’s BEASTS Review

2020-02-15T00:11:03-07:00

Beasts is a book about time—time passing, time cycling, time fossilizing, time writing itself on the human imagination. Such a scope might crumble in a lesser poet’s hands, but Sagan’s touch is dependably deft and fresh. Here are poems woven of high and low, shadow and light, visible and invisible, human and other-than. Tuned to the resonant universe, they touch us deeply. —Anne Valley-Fox,

Coming soon: BORROWED LIGHT by Ken Haas

2020-02-15T00:03:56-07:00

In this debut poetry collection, Borrowed Light, Ken Haas gives us vigorous, intimate, handsome histories of the Jewish New York immigrant community of the 1950s. His remarkable gifts for storytelling offer a natural, moving celebration of that passing world. His voice is strong, knowing and —above all— unaffectedly human.

2020-01-21T23:10:26-07:00

In this picaresque first novel, the protagonist moves from a rebellious existence to be more focused in the surrounding adult world. As he heads once more to the freights, after working intensely for seven years with parolees in a halfway house, he brings his old railroad diaries with him. Reading them over as he bounces from railyard to railyard, framed by the scenery of the

UNPRACTICAL THINKING by Arne Weingart has shipped!

2020-01-21T23:21:47-07:00

The poem that won me over is the poem addressed to Mark Strand (the poet unwriting), clever, sly, but loving, nonetheless. And the voice that won me over was the Jewish ironic voice of someone not willing to play it too straight or too crooked—but always with a large dollop of irony. I admire its sober warmth, its sense of history and human slippage. My

Miriam Sagan’s BEASTS are here!

2020-01-21T23:38:38-07:00

Whether writing about land and earth “forgotten/like a rusted key” or love that arrives as “a kind of completion/of arrival”, Sagan’s poems speak to the essence of every corner they touch. They ask the rare daring questionand what’s left unsaid adds reverberating power to her lines.  The personal echoes the world’s concerns in surprising, stunning ways—and the earth holds all of it in its
