Where it Goes, the latest book of poetry from Deerbrook Editions by Martina Newberry, features a photo by Eleanor Bennett, a promising young UK photographer. This second book of poems by Martina Newberry has been praised as “Revealing intense human vulnerability and wondrous irony . . . With honesty, wit, imaginative breadth and prosodic grace . . . Newberry explores the painful themes of death and life, youth and aging, prayer and spirituality”
Only Now has been a best seller at Blue Hill Books and selling well in general. A welcome review of this book appeared on The Line Break by Tom Holmes of Redactions magazine. This is the third book of poems Deerbrook Editions has published by Stuart Kestenbaum over the years.
From the back cover of Only Now:
Stuart Kestenbaum’s Only Now is a rare accomplishment: a collection of poems that takes on the fragility of the world and our own mortality, and does so with unflinching directness and, most impressively, with wit and a sincere prayerfulness. Many of these poems are what I would call strangely hopeful warnings, elegies-in-advance. They worry about the world in ways that register the beauty of what is in danger of being diminished. —Stephen Dunn
