9780967674865: Hook

Haya Pomrenze's "Hook" conveys the complexities of the Jewish Modern Orthodox female experience. The narrator is an insider and an outsider, dependent and contemptuous, a follower and a free spirit. Like the child in "Straddle" hooking her feet into the stirrups of a carousel horse, the heroine labors to stand on solid ground while staking her claim in a world further complicated by the push and pull of the mother-daughter relationship, explored throughout the book and masterfully portrayed in the title poem. You'll struggle not to laugh and cry at the same time while reading this poetry debut.

From the Back Cover:

When I read the poems of Haya Pomrenze, I feel like she's invited me to sit at her kitchen table and listen. There's no pretense or disguises here. The poems are full of earned wisdom and surprising insights. Her voice is informal and warm, compassionate and witty. Sitting at that table, I learned a few things. There's something here for any serious reader of poetry.
* Jim Daniels *

Haya Pomrenze speaks from the depths. She has transformed the friction between religion, culture and plain old family pathology into the music of life.
* Ruchama King *

Haya accomplishes what few poets can do: her book is great fun to read. She hooks you in with her brash sweetness, the freshness of her vision and her startling combination of the sacred and the profane. A new and important voice.
* Sherri Mandell *

Hook comes directly from the heart, gift wrapped in visceral metaphors and images. They say God has the last laugh. But Haya has long since joined in. A marvelous read.
* Hal Sirowitz *

From the Inside Flap:

Haya Pomrenze's poems are honest, direct...witty, straight out of the daily life of a Jewish woman who is intelligent and aware of the balancing acts of her life, between Orthodoxy and rebellion, between mother and daughter, husband and wife, how we saw the world when we were younger and how we see it as we grow older. * Marge Piercy
