About this title

Synopsis:

At the heart of God is in the Cracks is Robert Sward's Talmud-conversant father, of Russian-Jewish extraction—a Chicago-based podiatrist by profession—who came unhinged after his wife's death at age 42.
In the late 1940s he became a Rosicrucian and practiced his rites secretly in the basement of the family home. Dr. Sward evolved his own blend of kabbalistic, Christian hermetic, and prescient New Age mysticism which lent its colors to his medical practice as well as to his view of his son's eventual career choice and several marriages.
God is in the Cracks draws on Rosicrucian in the Basement and Heavenly Sex (Black Moss Press) and includes more than a dozen new poems in the father-son series. The poems, monologues and dialogues in the father's voice, are sequenced to form a narrative spanning 60 years (1945-present).
