In Dancing on the Rim of Light, Barbara Novack displays a talent for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. Red checkered tablecloths, Irish soda bread, a mother and child on a bus, gravestones, old photographs: nothing is solid, nothing endures; and, like her favorite painter Magritte, nothing she gives the reader is what it seems to be. Haunted by the dual tragedies of 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy, the poems in this fine collection hover between birth and death, birth again, and death again, as Novack dances on the rim of light defending herself and the world against chaos. About the Author Barbara Novack, Writer-in-Residence at Molloy College and a member of their English Department, is an award-winning, internationally published writer. Her recent books include poetry collections Something Like Life, nominated for a Paterson Poetry Prize and a New Mexico Book Award, Do Houses Dream? and A Certain Slant of Light, both finalists for the Blue Light Press Poetry Prize, and the novel J.W. Valentine, nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and finalist for Pushcart Press Editor’s Book Award.
