Merrick, New York Cross-Cultural Communications 2012 0893040592 / 978-0-89304-059-8 First Paperback New Perfect 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Marge Baliff Simon For my people--all Uthans past, present, future
From sentient deserts to railroad workers and Mormon Pioneers, Vanderhooft examines what it means to live, work, and love in Utah. “A personification of the desolate and sensuous Utah landscape swaggers through JoSelle Vanderfhooft’s Desert Songs, pining for the one partner who understands. In this hallucinatory fusion of autobiography and history, veering from saucy patter to timeless fable and back again, the desert permeates all, as god or goddess, as lover, as shepherd and scourge of the peoples who traverse it, as a backdrop to memory and heartache.” —Mike Allen Author of Steam-Powered: Lesbian Steampunk Stories

31 Vroman, Leo Love, Greatly Enlarged
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 1992 0893041270 / 9780893041274 First Hard cover Ltd Signed & Lettered New Poetry & Art 5 3/4x8 3/4 Cover and complemntary text art by Leo Vroman 
A bilingual (Dutch-English) scientiifc epic love poem by Holland's leading poet / artist / scientist. "Leo Vroman is that increasingly rare phenomenon in our time: a happy man. As the French author Coletee said: 'It take a kind of genius to be happy.' There are then three reasons to attribute genius to Vroman: first, as biomaterial sceintist, author of BLOOD and othr scientific treatises; secon, as poet, author of more than forty volumes of verse, prose, and drawing; and third, as happy man. 'Enjoying life is all I do all day, / but for this life there's no possible cure. / Today master, tomorrow manure, / for so it goes, and that is quite OK.' —Tr. C. N. W. How much of his acceptance of the generative and degenerative process, this enjoyment of every phase of it is the result of his lengendary love for "Tineke" (née Georgine Sanders), his wife, must remain a speculation. Born in Gouda, The Netherlands, in 1915, he studied biology at the University of Utrecht, escaped from the country when the Nazis took over, and became a soldier in Indonesia, where he was promptly imprisoned by the Japanese. On his way home, after the war, he passed through New York and has been a resident for most of the past 40 years. They live a rather isolated life in Brooklyn, speaking Dutch with each other, working in English, and writing in both languages. Vroman recently retired as a research career scientist at the Brooklyn Veteran's Hospital but continues his blood research as a member of the Department of Chemical Engineering at Columbia University. Visits to Holland, where he has collected almost every possible literary prize, are frequent, but he is known for a quip that has become almost a Dutch motto in a nation of restless travelers. 'Better homesick than Holland!' he seems to thrive in the compartive anonymity of the United States, where, in the end, one is lonelier but freer. His frequently rhyming poetry is both playful and philosophical, and draws on the biological for its point of view. His description of an autopsy, for instance, in which he describes emptying the corpse of a young woman with almost gleeful delight, may be hard for the layman to follow. And yet, in his 1968 introduction to BLOOD, the biological point of view opens up vistas of great lyricism: 'The last jungles in the world seem to withdraw almost eagerly from advancing man. The forests drain themselves of beasts and flatten into meadows, the meadows are turned into suburbs and the suburbs are swallowed by cities. The only thriving wildlife still barely touched by man is the hot, confusing and poorly lit world within himself. . . . The strangely shaped glands and bones, the transparent lungs, the madly dense tangle of cells in the brain hold worlds within worlds; and through it all and always, streams the blood.' In 'Beyond Progress,' a rcent address he gave to The Netherlands Cancer Institute, he says: 'The speed with which our understanding of everything and life itself progresses is amazing. Our knowledge grows and changes as fast as the reeling shadow of someone passing a street lamp in the night. . . . In the life span between birth and death I see only one duty, to try and understand something about the incrdible reality in which we live.' For Vroman, biology is the basis for a holistic vision of life. Everything is connected with something else. In the greatest chaos, order can be discovered, and love functions in this as the epoxy. This epiphanous theme is particularly evident in his recent work, especially in LOVE, GREATLY ENLARGED." —From the 1992 Foreword, originally the Introudction to the "Dutch Poets: Leo Vroman and Georgine Sanders" event at the Dag Hammarkjöld Auditorium on November 20, 1990, as part of the Reading Series at the United Nations in New York [hosted by Cross-Cultural Communications] by Claire Nicolas White Note: Leo and Tineke currently live in Ft. Worth, Texas.

A poetic-scientific, bilingual (Dutch-English) mini-epic depicting the tragedy of Flight 800 by Holland's leading poet, artist, scientist, currently living in Ft. Worth, Texas: "Better homesick than Holland." Leo Vroman was born in 1915, in Gouda, and studied biology in Utrecht, the Netherlands, where he met Georgine Sanders ("Tineke") who had come from Indonesia to study medicine. He escaped to England when his country surrendered to Germany in 1940, went to Indonesia where he finished his studies, published cartoon strips, and was a POW in Indonesia and Japan. Liberated in 1945, he came to the United States, started his research on blood coagulation and platelet function in New Brunswick, New Jersey, was joined by Tineke and married her in 1947. They have two daughters. Vroman continued his research, first in Mt. Sinai Hospital, New York City, then at the V.A. Medical Center in Brooklyn, and finally at Columbia University in New York. In 1997, hving lived in Brooklyn for 36 years, the couple moved to Ft. Worth, Texas. Apart from his scientific work and cartoon strips, he had (by 1997) published 36 volumes of poetry, including the present volume and to other bilingual ones (both published by Cross-Cultural Communications), and about 15 volumes of prose. He received awards for both his scientific work in the U.S. and for his poetry in the Netherlands, among others the National Poetry Award in 1965, silver medal from the Royal Academy of Sciences, and in 1996 the VSB Award.

Bill Wolak's love poems are finely tuned expressions of urgency and desire. They explore the lover's body with expectation on the brink of pleasure. --John Digby What a body of work! "and my eyes, impatient as lightning, / search for your hair / of storm-twisted branches . . . " Wolak's magic & word power has destroyed the last vestiges of puritanism on earth. --Gabriel Rosenstock Like a painter exploring every tone of a single hue patiently and like a singer endeavoring variations of a note in constant motion, Wolak explores the body with words. Reading these poems one realize that without language it would have been impossible to perceive beauty. Who would have believed that fragile flesh has so much of eternity within! --Dileep Jhaveri In these poems the heart pours out longing as a mingling of dream and arousal.
