A PRAYER ON BEHALF OF THE BROKEN HEART

Rachel's latest poetry collection is forthcoming on Finishing Line Press on 5/5/17.

“Your very being is a map of eternity”, writes Rachel Kann in A Prayer on Behalf of the Broken Heart, a book best experienced as just that: a field guide to endurance and the interminable foreverness of G-d. But it’s more than that. “The best infinity / The constellation of all possibilities, / Is beyond our comprehension.” What is most ineffable is most unknowable, even though it permeates every atom of our world. These poems teach us that there is beauty in brokenness, for even that is made from the matter of our maker.  This is a rabbinical book.

Each piece in this collection sails lyrically through the grimy sea of human imperfection. And at the conclusion, the shoreline, of so many of these poems, the speaker reveals a  counterintuitive secret: Beneath the murky waters of our fallibility resides–has always resided–what is most Divine. This is a deep and beautiful book.
