Things Overheard in the Synagogue
By Ira Bedzow
Penina Press / Urim Publications
Distributed by Coronet Books
$19.95 Paper original
Striving to record observations of things in his own world, and yielding a perspective that is pertinent to others as well, Ira Bedzow's poetry reveals emotions, frustrations and perspectives that the author has encountered in his life, further supplemented by a few remarks and reflections that strive to give expression to what is already on the tip of our tongues. Through poetical aphorisms, Bedzow intends to fulfill what Job unwittingly advises, ''I will forget my complaint, I will put off my sad face and wear a smile.''
