A Dream of Feet, Axelrod, David B.
1 Axelrod, David B. A Dream of Feet
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 1976 089304007X / 9780893040079 First Paperback New Poetry 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Cover: Bebe Barkan For Joan, Writing
"I enjoy David B. Axelrod's work. In many ways, he stands at the center of contemprory traditions; in other ways, his virtues are rare. As readily readable as excellent prose, Axelrod's poems (for they ARE poems) offer further pleasures: Axelrod is a master of the serious pun, of the metaphor nobody else would have imagined, of the kind of rime you don't notice unless you're looking for it Many of the poems in A Dream of Feet, such as the title poem, are outrageously funny; but Axelrod also goes deep--as fine poems such as 'Voyeur' and 'Once in a While a Protest Poem" indicate. His is a strong and able voice. To read him is to be catapulted out of one's individual shell to enter a host of lives." --X. J. Kennedy, author and editor

2 Axelrod, David B. Home Remedies: New and Selected Poems, 1961-1981
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 1982 0893040517 / 9780893040512 First Hard Cover New Good Poetry & Art 5 7/8 x 8 7/8" Bebe Barkan For my grandmother, Esther Kransberg (1882-1862)
"If any poet working in America at present has the power to smash complacency, it is [Axelrod].... If his work is news to you, you're lucky to hold this book in your hand. Here, from several collections now hard to obtain, are some of the most lovely, harrowing, and outrageously funny poems from his first twenty publishing years. For good measure, there is a trove of new work besides." --X. J. Kennedy "David B. Axelrod's New and Selected Poems is a striking and extremely readable book. His title, Home Remedies, reminds me that Stephen Crane thought of his poems as 'pills," medicine, and that William Stafford thinks maybe that each of his own poems is in some way at least a mild protest poem. Axelrod's voice is spare, sharp, always engaging in ways that Crane and Stafford are, and convincing within his own ironies and perceptions These are twenty years of poems here, and this is a welcome book." --Wiliam Heyen

Mishpocheh, Barkan, Stanley H.
4 Barkan, Stanley H. Mishpocheh
Krakow & New York Inter Esse & Cross-Cultural Communications 2003 0893047201 / 9780893047207 First Paperback New Perfect 4 1/2x6 1/2 Bebe Barkan 
“The profound way Barkan articulates constant desire to return home and to bring his readers home by merging them into his own extended and extensive family makes Mishpocheh surely one of the most remarkable poetry collections to be released in the early twenty-first century. The volume’s uniqueness is also emphasized by Bebe Barkan´s colorful paintings–mostly of her family members and her husband’s (including Grandma Celia). Like much of the artwork included in Cross-Cultural Communication’s books, her paintings are warm and colorful, and easily evoke the humanity and individuality of her subjects. Done in a style reminiscent of French Impressionism and American primitive folk art of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, they enhance and personalize her husband’s words, just as his poems ground her pictures in context–in words and memory. Indeed, one of the best features in this flawless publication is the sense of genuine collaboration between husband and wife. Mishpocheh is a complex and captivating poetry collection which deserves to be read time and time again, in hopes that it may help the reader understand and appreciate his or her own mishpocheh a little more. Indeed, a simple review cannot possibly do it justice. One walks away after having read it with a deeper understanding of what it means to be human, to be a finite being who ultimately survives only in the memories of loved ones.” —JoSELLE VANDERHOOFT Author of Desert Songs From a review in The Pedestal Magazine (#31, Dec 2005-Feb 2006)

Raisins with Almonds / Pàssuli cu mènnuli, Barkan, Stanley H.  Marco Scalabrino, Sicilian Translator
6 Barkan, Stanley H. Marco Scalabrino, Sicilian Translator Raisins with Almonds / Pàssuli cu mènnuli
Mineola, New York, USA & Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Legas 2013 1881901955 / 9781881901952 First Paperback New Poetry 6 x 9 Photographer: Giuseppe Mineo For Nat & Nina Scammacca
“Barkan’s Jewish soul has found in Sicily a receptive and maternal ambience. Perhaps his ancestors were among those who were forced to leave in 1493 when Spain chased them out of the island which had been their homeland for more than a millennium. So these poems are a coming home, not to Jerusalem, but to Sicily.” —From the Foreword by Gaetano Cipolla President, Arba Sicula
