Book Reviews

July 2021

"FishMoon is a penetrating and brilliant performance of your complicated and disappointing relationship with your father. Thirty-two poems chronicle a visit to Israel to spend three weeks with him. The title of each poem is one word; if you read those words taken alone together, they preview the story of alienation and even resentment toward the father for his inability or refusal to commune with you, to show you the love and warmth you longed for. Scene after scene infused with sensory images of food and place are filled with dialogue that never connects. Artfully you present the reader a man crippled by the loss of a life he hoped for, by having to trade the role of teacher for a caregiver to his sick wife, and you the daughter tightening your heart like his fist even at his death, unable to say Kaddish. Bravo, Michal!"
