As I Am Presently Known

As I Am Presently Known

By Leon Rubinstein Months after World War II officially ends, a 15-year-old boy still hides in a potato field. The horror of the Holocaust is followed by the horror of survival. The question "Why me?" haunts survivors for the rest of our lives. For some of us, life is only possible under the anesthesia of silence. After 63 years, Leon Rubinstein has broken his silence with this book. As I Am Presently Known is a remarkable story of life's victory over death and about one generation passing the torch to another. Marian Marzynski Holocaust survivor, documentary filmmaker, author of...

At Home Abroad

At Home Abroad

By Nancy Henderson-James At Home Abroad is a stunning autobiography of Nancy Henderson-James's youth in Africa. Heart-wrenching is her uprooting at age 15 when the war for independence began, from Angola, whose natural world, people, customs, languages she so loved. Nancy bravely and articulately recounts a true saga of personal loss and bereavement. But out of the crucible of conflicts between herself and her parents, the Africa she loved and the America from which she felt estranged, comes crystalline strength, confidence, humor, and self-knowledge. Her journey to wholeness, with its...

At Work in the Bridal Industry

At Work in the Bridal Industry

By Nadell Fishman Nadell Fishman takes the subjects of ordinary women’s lives and not only delves beneath them but sets them slightly askew so that we see them from fresh new angles. In this world, for instance, “Dorothy decided that Oz suits her,” and these poems will certainly suit its readers. — Linda Pastan Nadell Fishman is able to take on both sides of emotion—love and loss—with equal intensity. The graceful hopes that we bring to our engagements with one another are played out in her poems with compassion, clarity and insight. There is no melodrama in these poems; no special pleading....

By Robin Greene When Professor Robin Greene tells a freshman composition class about her scholarly interest in women's narratives, Samantha Henderson, an African American student, invites Greene to meet her grandmother and to listen to a series of reel-to-reel tapes that both Samantha and her grandmother insist should be part of the official WPA archive of ex-slave narratives.

Auras

Auras

By Douglas Nordfors Malcolm Cowley called childhood the "landscape by which all others are reckoned and condemned." This provocative, mythic, haunted territory is the turf of Douglas Nordfors' Auras , a collection charged with Wordsworthian wandering/wondering and Blakean outrage against "mind-forg'd manacles" harmful to the innocent, impoverished, or vulnerable among us. These poems offer profound empathy with children, natural phenomena, and animal presences; they marry the pre-Lapsarian, primal urgency of early experiences with an extraordinarily generous adult vision...

Before the Reef

Before the Reef

Before the Reef Eleanor Swanson Kudos to Eleanor Swanson. In this suspenseful family tragedy, she renders in affecting detail the existential mesh of human interaction in which our intention to protect others unleashes the anguish we sought to avoid. This is a skillfully and poetically rendered story of love and its reverberating loss, and of loyalty, sheer endurance, and of healing. Swanson is an adroit raconteur of the human heart. Marilyn Krysl, author of Dinner with Osama, Winner of Notre Dame's Richard Sullivan Prize Estrangement grows on the pages of this novel until it is like a great...

Behind Dark Waters

Behind Dark Waters

By Pramila Venkateswaran These are fierce poems, Amazonian in their reach which challenges male territory and waterfalls but further challenges young women to find their warrior selves. Transgression, tresspass and daring are vital in them. However, the anguish of being female is just as vigorously their property. Read "Cartographer of the Breast." Karen Swenson, author of Landlady in Bangkok and A Daughter's Latitude: New and Selected Poems Venkateswaran's second collection outstrips her first in many ways: it is substantial in volume and contains a wider range of subjects and...

Bend, Break

Bend, Break

By Robert Pfeiffer These are the poems of an honest seeker. In an age when so many poets hide behind the wall of irony, I'm grateful for a young poet who is willing to stand out in the open and risk a sincere approach to the mysteries of the world. Robert Pfeiffer is a strong and fresh voice in American poetry. This is a fine collection, a truthful witness to the possibility of meaning in the world. David Bottoms In this post-post modern world where cynicism and irony are the predominant forces at work in much of the poetry produced and lauded, Robert Pfeiffer's debut collection Bend, Break...
