It’s been six years since my first book, More to Keep us Warm (ECW Press) was published. This upcoming collection, Letter from Brooklyn,┬átakes up some similar ‘themes’ of grief, loss, identity, but with a deeper focus on what I would call my radical-Jewish American heritage. Through the medium of poetry, I explore how politics and history shape personal relationships, and vice versa. There is also a ‘prairie poem’ and a poem ‘about’ auto-tune internet mimes, so, it’s a fairly diverse collection too.
