In this poignant collection of poems, Richard Beban conveys the world around him in a brilliantly real and lyrically beautiful light. He writes of different perspectives and relationships, doing so with humor and warmth, leaving a memorable impression long after the final page has been turned.

Richard Beban, author of poetry collections What the Heart Weighs (Red Hen Press 2004), turned to poetry in 1993 after spending more than thirty years as a journalist, and then a television and screen writer.
Beban's poetry has appeared in more than fifty periodicals and literary websites, and in seventeen national anthologies in the US and Britain, and he has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. He has been a featured reader at more than 150 venues, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Berkeley's late, lamented Cody's Books, and Shakespeare & Company in Paris, France.
Beban, his wife poet and novelist Kaaren Kitchell, and three other poets organized and ran one of Los Angeles' most successful weekly reading series, at Venice's Rose Cafe from 1997 to early 2000. He and Kitchell also produced the 2003 Freshwater Marsh Ecopoetry Celebration at Playa Vista, California, a five-hour celebration of the new freshwater marsh constructed to help restore Ballona Wetlands.
Beban and Kitchell, both graduates of the MFA in creative writing program at Antioch University, Los Angeles, co-authored Living Mythically, a non-fiction manuscript on mythology. They also host monthly poetry and fiction writing workshops in their living room in Playa del Rey, California.
