Written by Elizabeth Zelvin
“The reader of Elizabeth Zelvin’s poetry feels as if he or she has been granted access to the deepest secrets contained in that most private of spaces: a psychotherapist’s consulting room. yet the poems evoke this privilege without the least hint of voyeurism or academic haughtiness on the part of the therapist-author. Indeed, we learn even more about her own inner life than we do about her clients, including poignant but always sharply edged poems about her family, her work with both clients and flowers, the loss of friends, the passage of time, and our always doomed efforts to recapture the past. [Zelvin’s] poems achieve a rare combination of accessibility and luminous insight, earthiness, and sophistication.”
–Barbara F. Lefcowitz, Ph.D., poet, fiction writer, essayist
