Deborah Bacharach's very contemporary book of poetry uses references to biblical stories to illuminate the relationships between men and women, their difficulties and complications. It's a bold book of loss and survival, betrayal and love, a book about work and about humanity. Abraham and Sarah are here, as well as Lot and his wife, Hagar, Potiphar, and others. Modern-day lovers are here too, along with struggles and satisfactions that are universal.
In Kelli Russell Agodon’s fourth collection, each poem facilitates a humane and honest conversation with the forces that threaten to take us under. The anxieties and heartbreaks of life—including environmental collapse, cruel politics, and the persistent specter of suicide—are met with vulnerability and darkly sparkling humor. Dialogues with Rising Tides passionately exclaims that even in the midst of great difficulty, radiant wonders are illuminated at every turn.
Deborah Bacharach is the author of Shake and Tremor (Grayson Books, 2021) and After I Stop Lying (Cherry Grove Collections, 2015). She received a 2020 Pushcart honorable mention and has been published in journals such as Poetry Ireland Review, Sweet, Harbor Review, and The Southampton Review among many others.
