Occasionally I offer book reviews when I fee strongly about a new book and want to write about my discoveries. Having a book published is an enormous thing. I appreciate brave ventures of friends and others into exciting new areas – like Roger Housden writing of Iran; or Mary Johnson‘s fierce sharing of her life with Mother Theresa. Then there is Gjertrude Schnackenberg, a woman poet I’d never heard of, whose poetics altered my sense of the rhythms of poetry for many months.
