0 Reviews
This restless son of the Diaspora has worn out many pairs of shoes, alligator and otherwise, walking his beat which stretches from Toronto to Paradise via Armageddon. Poet and artist Joe Rosenblatt paints a surreal nocturnal world where everything private becomes part of the public domain as he examines the reasons for moving on. In these affectionate and critical essays, the secretive poet/voyeur is revealed as he has revealed the ruined and beautiful worlds that compel him. This book introduces and explains an icon of our time. The title includes essays by David Berry, Barry Callaghan, Sharon Abron Drache, Ada Donati, Italo Evangelisti, Jean Greenberg, Diane Keating, Susan Musgrave, Catherine Owen, Phyllis Reeve, Alfredo Rizzardi, Linda Rogers, Alan Safarik, and Faye Smith.
