“[November] allows a radiant spiritual light to shine through deeply human fissures.”
–THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE

 

 

Yehoshua November is the author of God's Optimism (a finalist for the L.A. Times Book Prize) and Two Worlds Exist (a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award and Paterson Poetry Prize).

 

"Yehoshua November integrates his Orthodox Judaism with the everyday, through poems of radical clarity. Throughout his work, he shows that religious faith can be compatible with a poetry of deep, uncertain feeling."

--MATTHEW ZAPRUDER, NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE
