All the Dead Are Holy Paperback – January 10, 2017
Special offers and product promotions
All The Dead Are Holy is, at once, a prayer, a history, and a family album. Levy unlocks secret passages into the past and unearths the artifacts of not just an extended family but whole generations of people doing their best to be who they are in a world that often wishes they were otherwise. Delivered in skillfully wrapped packages of prosody, All the Dead Are Holy is a wide-awake walk down memory lane in the city of what it means to be fully human. - JodiAnn Stevenson, author of The Procedure and Diving Headlong Into A Cliff Of Our Own Delusion This is a touching collection of reminiscences about family and ancestry that compels us to ask "Who is not my neighbor, and who remains?" This book is important because today the world is "questioning if strangers belong," and its pages provide a true, heartfelt answer. Lovely, lovely book. Truly timely in the important matters it forces one to consider. - Adrienne (Lewis) Wright, author of Coming Clean and Compared to This These evocative poems glow with a vitality that interweaves the personal with the collective past. They render with keen observation and fresh insight both victims and perpetrators of the Holocaust, but also portray with humor and compassion our contemporary life, where the living emerge into history. - Skip Renker, author of Sifting the Visible and Bearing the Cast Each of Levy's poems reads like a facet of an Ideal Cut diamond. Light glints and prisms throughout this collection, reflecting his signature wit and wisdom out into the world. - Michael Somers, author of Starved Levy's message sings a song of compassion and understanding, be they poems of navigating fam-ily relationships or poems that look unflinchingly at the history of the Holocaust, always asking us to remember, remember, remember. - Jeff Vande Zande, author of American Poet A good poem has three qualities: powerful imagery, perfect word choices, and engagement of the heart of the reader. The poems in Larry Levy's collection All the Dead Are Holy do just that. Evocative, engaging, and smoothly written, Mr. Levy's poems are like those wonderful rich scents in a grandmother's kitchen that you can't help but inhale as deeply as you can so you don't miss any of it. - Philip Done, author of 32 Third Graders and One Class Bunny and The Ornament Box

I highly recommend reading his poems aloud. Quiet your home, pour your tea, and speak these words. You'll (hopefully) find joy in Levy's lyricism, his true poetry. Just keep some tissues or your handkerchief close by: you may be caught as I was in tears with his FIRST DATE AT THE L & K.
All the dead are holy, indeed. Read this and join in the praise of them; and join in the praise of life seen through such a magnificent lens.
