This Week’s Reviews

Cyborg Detective 
Jillian Weise | BOA Editions | 9781942683858 | September 2019
“Always sharp-witted, sophisticatedly savvy, and commanding in surprisingly vulnerable ways, Weise’s poems remind me that the stakes are high, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun.”—The Rumpus

Permanent Exhibit 
Matthew Vollmer | BOA Editions | 9781942683681 | September 2018
“In this way, Permanent Exhibit would be an excellent text to survive a global calamity that would somehow render most of the records of our time unreadable. The people of the future who find this book will be able to read this text as a snapshot of current American moment. . . . Beyond its faith, there’s a deep magic to this book, maybe even an alchemy, combining contradictory, unpleasant things into something that shines and, possibly, enlightens.”—The Rupture Magazine

Unattended Sorrow: Recovering from Loss and Reviving the Heart
Stephen Levine | Monkfish Book Publishing | 9781939681904 | February 2019
“Though mainly known (with his wife Ondrea) for his work with the dying, Unattended Sorrow encompasses all forms of grief, including what he calls “Our Most Ordinary Existential Grief.” All the unresolved grief of a lifetime surfaces when we face major loss. With his compassionate guidance, and overview as a spiritual seeker, he counsels us to gently, kindly, face our pain and begin to heal our hearts. His clear perception, poetic descriptions, metaphors and similies are easily grasped; his warm-hearted wisdom makes him a trusted friend to turn to in sorrow.”—Light of Consciousness Magazine
