This Close by Karen Klein

This Close

Karen Klein’s This Close is a beautiful read, the poems ranging widely in mood and tone. Her partner’s painful, fatal illness includes a grieving awareness of her own body registering “the meaning of old.” Parthenon presents an excited “First time tourist,” while Tribal Tongues is playful about Yiddish that enriches “…my tribe/those meshugena enough to make poems.” Commitment to Poetry describes her mysterious process of vision: “Poetry made a commitment to me…pulled words out of me…scant rain dew on my face…I melt into it,” an engaging, sensitive collection.— Nina Rubinstein Alonso, author, Riot Wake, editor, Constellations a Journal of Poetry and Fiction
