Ted Roberts review of
Light at the End, The Jesus Poems
by Lyn Lifshin
Light at the End. Kept me up till now (its 3:45 a.m). My
mind may not go to sleep at all now. Will resist the urge to say JESUS
CHRIST, What a book! Ive actually read parts of the book 3
times +, with plans to re-re-re-read them again
.as I do most of
her work. Certainly, I enjoyed it but not in the same ways Ive enjoyed
some of her other books. After all, THIS book is different.
inspires a whole thesaurus of feelings!
Suffice it to say the book is more than worth the read by anyone with
a mind open enough to recognize its power
