A Potpourri of Poetry
Poetry Chapbook by Jane Allen Edwards
(Available March 2017)
This is Edwards third poetry collection
published by Poetica Publishing Company.
"A Potpourri of Poetry deals with a variety of topics I’ve experienced that I wanted to put into words. From walking through the snow in Winter Simplicity to relaxing in my trailer while going through the sights and sounds in A Summer’s Day, I experience nature’s seasons in a distinct way. I describe in The Spirit of Christmas what I like to do at that time of the year, and as I listen to classical music, I give my impressions of favorite composers in Musical Expression- - -It’s Impression. These examples are but a few of the included pieces, hopefully just enough to entice you to share my work with you!" --- The Author
Can You Say Kaddish for The Living?
Poetry Chapbook by Keith Tornheim
This is Tornhiem's second collection
published by Poetica Publishing.
Available directly from the author: [email protected]
"These are poems of Jewish experience, many of which have been read at services of our congregation. Some are about Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, especially Yizkor; some are general and some are personal, such as wearing my father’s tallis or communing with memories of my parents or why I have not placed pebbles on their graves. There are poems in memory of a friend’s father, a Holocaust survivor, and about the sculptures of second-generation survivor Lisa Rosowsky, and lighter poems about Isaac’s camping trip and why we owe thanks to mosquitoes. The title poem was inspired by my father’s dementia at the end of his life. The last poem envisions the Friday night listening by the angels, malachei hashalom."

Cases I lost and Other Injustices
Short Stories by Mordecai Rosenfeld
182 pages / Paper Back - Available on amazon.com
Signed copies, contact the author: [email protected]
"When retired lawyers describe their careers they typically boast about the cases they won—or imagined they won—and always with a generous dose of puffery. This book respectfully dissents—a retired solo practitioner writes about the vicissitudes of becoming a lawyer, and once sworn in as a member of the bar about the cases he lost. And lost decisively, including a 9-0 decision in the United States Supreme Court. What makes these humbling defeats interesting is their subject: In each case a small investor challenged brazen executive greed; in each case the court managed to twist, to bend, to contort in order to protect the defendants (the usual Establishment 1%ers); and in each case the court ruled that the covetous big-shots could keep their loot. Sometimes the law can be discouraging, but no need for gloom: This book, written with wit and style, will make you laugh and make you wonder-- unless you chance to be one of those judges who presided."

"Using elegant, vivid, and carefully crafted language, The Last Commandment examines the nature of love, family, the creative process, and the connection between nature and ourselves. The poems are meditations, insights, personal recollections, and reflections that stem from a deep reading of original Biblical texts and commentaries. Deeply nuanced, these poems can be appreciated for their lyricism, spirituality, and their fresh outlook on our world and beyond."
