About this title


Poetry. Esther Cohen writes with humor and joy and lots of energy. You can't help but smile when you encounter her delightful images. In her title poem, for example, you learn that she once wrote a poem and "'God Is a Tree' was the title. / Louis Savitsky didn't like it./ He asked why / I had the chutzpah / to believe I knew. / A few years later, Louis's daughter / became a Scientologist." It is those seemingly unrelated comments, presented with a straight "face," that startle and amuse as they challenge one's thinking. These poems have a definite Jewish tone to them, but certainly one doesn't need to be Jewish in order to appreciate them.

About the Author:

Esther Cohen is the author of the recent book Don’t Mind Me and Other Jewish Lies, as well as the novels No Charge for Looking and Book Doctor. She is also the editor of Unseenamerica: Photos and Stories by Workers. She is executive director of Bread and Roses, the cultural arm of New York’s Health and Human Services union. She lives in New York City.
