Book Review - The Broken String by Grace Schulman


Reading Grace Schulman is like reading philosophy; the poems in her book The Broken String either ask deeper questions or give lessons learned through the eyes of one who has truly and simply lived. This was my first time reading her work and I am glad to have done so; reading “new” poets refreshes my own soul and clears away cobwebs. Her words are sensual, daring and dreamlike; even those who do not like poetry will like hers. Her topics range from Itzhak Perlman to jazz to everyday life and everything in between. Rather than go on and on with my praise of Schulman, all I can ask is that you pick up The Broken String and read, read, read.
