Reviews

"In Life of the Garment, we find Deborah Gorlin's felt intelligence, where language locates us in poetry's true place: history living in the heart. In poem after poem, Gorlin clothes us in her fabric of sung words, with characters unique and familiar to us. Her poems give us facsimiles of love, which comfort and gaze upon us. In reading this fine collection, you will see for yourself."--Gary Margolis, 2014 May Sarton New Hampshire Poetry Prize judge and author of Raking the Winter Leaves
Deborah Gorlin lusts after thingness even as she knows that its eerie emptiness will disenchant in the end. A wizard of description . . . she focuses her raw wonder on the real . . . until it s revealed as if new. Poem after poem, the elations and elegies of Gorlin s language melt in your mouth like hard candies. Alice B. Fogel, New Hampshire Poet Laureate"
