A book of poems by Tirzah Goldenberg. Goldenberg was raised in an Orthodox Jewish community in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania and spent her undergraduate years at the University of Exeter in England before receiving her MFA from Colorado State.
“Aleph: From the silence of this letter title springs forth a book rich in thin lines of force. There’s an essential echo that runs through these poems, an echo of an old beginning. Like the oil pressed from olives, what these poems give forth is the essence of the soul’s song: “like fire / among the clamor / like / bellowing.’ An exceptional first book.”
—Pam Rehm, American poet
