Editorial Reviews

Review

Marvin Antosofsky s verses are direct and powerful. He courageously lets the reader into his world where pain and heartbreak have run rampant. Gripping and moving. --Dan Matthews, author of Rain, Heavy at Times: Life in the Cancer Months

Songs of Sorrow is a must read for anyone who has suffered from, is suffering from, or for those who have lost someone to cancer. It s an inspiring account of loss and grief. --Robert Melli, author of Cancer Cures, Causes, and Prevention

The elegiac poems of Marvin Antosofsky exhibit an unrestrained quality and remarkable skill. These autobiographical poems are like windows into a tortured soul, who in the end, finds hope and joy despite his misery. --Michael A. Skinner, author of Liquid Mirror: Waiting on the New Moon

A personal response to life. Written from the heart. Certainly words that others who have had to endure loss will understand.
