Review:

After the Track trilogy, one of the most brilliant and audacious works in recent American literature, what a pleasure to discover these earlier poems by Norman Finkelstein. Lyrical, probing, and always finely wrought, there is a tenderness in this book that can break one's heart. --Paul Auster

Finkelstein's lyrical meditations on the religious and secular Jewish tradition not only mark him as a major voice articulating, with grace, Jewish identity, but also establish the role a venerable religion can play in the modern world. Passing Over is also of especial value in its illumination of its author's other collections of poetry, in some of which Judaism as a theme plays a role but is not predominant, and yet which, now become obvious, are greatly steeped in this world and its way of understanding our existence. --Burt Kimmelman
