Whether or not a reader agrees with the sentiment, their grimaces will be accompanied by grins provoked by an unending variety of gritty, whimsical borders and vignettes surrounding the texts on each page. This is a book where the accompanying iconography is as telling as the sometimes tortured text itself. One example: chains held fast with padlocks in the shape of hearts flank the words "stalled under indifferent angels' gates, prayers & heaven wait for us to turn from our cannibal gravity".
Individual sections include "The Bags We Put Over Their Faces", "Land-Miners' Prayers", "Under Hebron" and "White Phosphorus".
If not Sync Book Press, I hope some other will eventually publish a large coffee table edition of more of Borukh Goldberg's full color graphical poetry. In the meantime, I'm glad to have this much of his original, creative work accessible to the public.
Note: Having been acquainted with the author in the past, a star rating can't but reflect that amicable bias. Amazon requires a star rating with no way to opt out. My preference in this case would have been to opt out.
