Prose + Poetry = A Winner!

This little book shines!

Baron Wormser wrote ten stories about ordinary people who each have a favorite poet and how the poetry affects their lives.

There's a waitress who finds validation in Sylvia Plath.

A grown orphan who lives each day with the joy of William Blake.

A high school junior who connects with Elinor Wylie.

A retired pharmacist who finds poetry in the simple things because of William Carlos Williams.

Wormser's prose is as poetic as the poems. This is a book I'll return to again and again.
