Poetry. Jewish Studies. "This is a big- hearted, large-minded book, rich in its religious heritage yet wonderfully ironic, in its particulars, about those same compelling cultural connections. The flow of the writing, too, is thoroughly complete and poignantly alive in its follow-through, as if the poems were engaging the reader in real-life chat- narratives. Philip Terman's OUR PORTION is a work of profound maturity, practical wisdom, and reconciliation with what is possible."—Stanley Plumly
