BeschreibungBrooklyn, crouching forever in the shadow of Manhattan, is perhaps best known for a certain bridge or for the eternal carnival at Coney Island. This collection of 135 notable poems reveals the many cultural, ethnic, aesthetic, and religious traditions that have accorded Brooklyn its enduring place in the American psyche.
PortraitA former resident of Brooklyn, Julia Spicher Kasdorf is Associate Professor of English at Penn State University. She is the author of two collections of poetry, Eve's Striptease and Sleeping Preacher, and a collection of essays The Body and the Book: Writing from a Mennonite Life. Michael Tyrell lives in Brooklyn, where he was born. His poetry has appeared in The Paris Review, The Yale Review, and Ploughshares. He teaches writing at New York University and Pace University.
Pressestimmen"This book isn't only for Brooklyn residents but for all those who value community. . . . Reading this collection is a moving experience because the poems feel home-grown. It doesn't matter where they were written, each one makes Brooklyn come alive, and the poems find a home inside you."
-From the Foreword by Hal Sirowitz, author of "Mother Said"
