Review:

Paumanok is a beautiful book, whether judged by its visual appearance or its words--the superb quality of the images, the sound of the poems. This anthology, which celebrates the cycle of the seasons, documents an aspect of Long Island far removed from the intensity of expressways, frenetic pace of contempory life. Paumanok! The name evokes a magic. We must each find our own Paumanok, discover our secret place. Entering the pages of this book, we are transported there. --Richard Bronson,author of Search for Oz What is unusual about this charming anthology is how well the poems and poets--some well-know, others not--all fit together, as if the Long Island they celebrate so beautifully has a sensibility they all share, even though some of the poets write about everyday life and some about sea and sky. The more than 300 phtographs that accompany the poems make a perfect embellishment. The book demonstrates how Long Island is, and has been, a nest of singing birds. --Harvey Shapiro, author of The Sights Along the Harbor: New and Collected Poems

I am in receipt of PAUMANOK: POEMS AND PICTURES OF LONG ISLAND and wanted to let you know how impressive it is. As co-owner of book Revue I've looked at many compilations of stories and poems about Long Island. Nothing comes close to this. Magnificent! --Bob Klein --E-mail, October 21, 2009

How do I begin to thank you for the gift of Long Island voices and sacred places, indeed, this place for th heart to rest, where even prayer is possible. Both solemn, enduring texts. . . . In all truth, when I read through Paumanok: Poems and Pictures of Long Island, I was breathless, having never seen an anthology quite like it, such a perfect union of voice and haunting photography, truth in the telling and photographic meditating. The volume is already a classic, a modest sublimity, aesthetic integrity belongs in every library in the nation. Its subtitle should read: Paumanok: The Way It Is, Life s Corner in Things. . . . You have given the world an enduring classic. It is that unique! --Vince Clemente --Letter, November 5, 2009
