About this title


Karen Shenfeld?s careful, concentrated language draws the reader in. Hers is a charged, physical world where figure skates are ?a shock of alpine white,? and the Torah?s ?crowned letters dance.? It is also a world marked by profound metaphysical connections where fireflies flash ?coded signals of their secret selves.? There is an irresistible brilliance and humour to several of the poems and Shenfeld?s tributes to her redhot Jewish mamas - Molly Picon, Fanny Brice, and Sophie Tucker - will leave the lover of poetry wishing she?d offered more. - Kenneth Sherman

About the Author:

Karen Shenfeld is a poet, journalist, filmmaker, and traveller. She has written two previous collections of poetry: The Law of Return (Guernica Editions, 1999), which won the 2001 Canadian Jewish Book Award for Poetry, and The Fertile Crescent (Guernica Editions, 2005). In the writing of My Father?s Hands Spoke in Yiddish, the poet flies home from far-flung lands to explore the re-imagined terrain of Bathurst Manor, the Toronto suburb in which she was raised.
