New Releases: Rending the Garment

RendingtheGarment-CoverWilla Schneberg’s new poetry collection Rending the Garment has just been released from Mudfish/Box Turtle Press, NYC.

Rending the Garment is a narrative tapestry encompassing persona poems, prose poems, flash fiction, imagined meetings with historical figures, ancestral appearances, and ephemera. It is a series of linked poems exploring the life and times of one Jewish family.

headshot “Rending the Garment tells a familiar tale: the Jewish immigrant family romance, but with an important difference. Using shifting points of view and narrative interruptions, biographical essays, scolding notes from school principals, diary entries, not to mention a cast of characters as lively as a Borscht Belt revue, Willa Schneberg tells her story from the inside, where grief and love live side by side in bed ‘neither old nor young,’ bodies outside of time… A fresh, original and moving addition to our literature.” Philip Schultz, Pulitzer Prize Winner for Failure.
