Poet, Professor, Speaker

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).

 

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

–THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE

 
"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."
--NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE, MATTHEW ZAPRUDER
