In Snow Hangs on the Branches of Evergreens, Stuart P. Radowitz gives the reader a remarkable gift, a gift of beautiful poems, each a sparkling faceted gem, evoking in ripples of memory the shadow architecture of life, each place a moment with all the contradictions of the natural world and all its inhabitants. There is magic here, for through these poems, Stuart takes the ephemeral and makes it immutable.
Stuart P. Radowitz, a Long Island poet, has had a long and successful career in business and education. He is presently an instructor in the English Department at Molloy College, teaching creative writing and critical reading classes.
