Description

Cool-burning with the strange and the sensual, Come Closer takes the imposing realities of political, environmental, and social upheaval, and infuses each with the personal. From poet and award-winning filmmaker Leanne Averbach comes a new collection of poems. Borne of her MFA thesis from The New York School in NYC, Come Closer draws on themes as widespread as Averbachâ??s left-wing-activist and trade-union-organizer past, the loss of her parents, the Iraq War, and the homeless, all seen through the gritty lens of New York City and with a persistent inner dialogue about love, family, and doubt.
