Editorial Reviews


"Since the anthology features more than 110 poets, it’s impossible to mention all the poems that spoke to me. The best part of the work was being introduced to new and unfamiliar writers. ‘The Bloomsbury Anthology of Contemporary Jewish American Poetry’ would make an excellent textbook for a literature class and belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in Jewish American poetry." – Rabbi Rachel Esserman, The Reporter

More About the Author

Author, artist and speaker Leslie B. Neustadt was born in Poughkeepsie, New York. She received her B.A. in History from the University of Rochester and her J.D. from Temple University School of Law in 1976. A former Assistant Attorney General for the state of New York, she retired from that office following a long and rewarding career. She began writing in the warm embrace of womanwords, a peer writing group founded by Marilyn Day in the Capital Region of New York.

A member of the International Women's Writers Guild and the Hudson Valley Writers Guild, Leslie created an award winning Community of Jewish Writers reading series in the Capital Region. Pursuing a wide range of expressive arts and holistic practices as part of her healing journey, her work is illuminated by her Jewish background. Her poems explore the challenges she's faced living with serious health problems including a rare form of incurable blood cancer and amyloidosis, as well as other chronic illnesses. She writes openly about her experiences as an incest survivor. Her new book is BEARING FRUIT: A POETIC JOURNEY (Spirit Wind Books; 1st Ed., Apr 14, 2014).

Her poems and essays have appeared in a variety of literary journals and publications including Akros Review, Cure, Cylamens and Swords, Found Poetry Review, Jewish Women's Literary Annual, Mused: BellaOnline Literary Review, Poetica, and Workers Write: Tales from the Courtroom. She has been published in several anthologies including Peer Glass (Hudson Valley Writers Guild), Mentor's Bouquet (Finishing Line Press), The Bloomsbury Anthology of Contemporary Jewish American Poetry (Bloomsbury Press), and the forthcoming anthology Veils, Halos and Shackles: International Poetry on the Abuse and Oppression of Women.

She continues to find inspiration and solace through her writing and artwork, giving voice to her experiences as a woman, daughter, wife, mother, patient and survivor. About Leslie's writing, author Natalie Reid has said, "Leslie Neustadt is a gift. Her raw-boned, unvarnished humanity and quest for forgiveness--of both herself and others--resonate throughout the journey on which she takes us. Her poems, at once delicate and compelling, teach us to 'surrender shame' and 'sense true north' in the unmapped territories of our lives."

Leslie lives with her husband, Dr. Gary Kronick, in Niskayuna, New York. They are the parents of two adult sons, and are proud grandparents.
