Tales of a Distance: Poems

Andrew C. Gottlieb's first full-length collection of poems. To order a copy, click on the cover image.


Poetry can speak most resonantly at those times when the distance between our lives and death shrinks, times such as when a parent dies, and we relearn what intimacy in a family context can mean. Such is the beautiful intensity of Andrew Gottlieb's poems in this collection, written with crystalline images and mindful presence. I'm especially captured by how rivers, animals, and landscapes of the American West inhabit the poems as talismans for the inseparability of mind and nature. And for the mystery of how we find beauty while living on the edge of peril.


-Alison Hawthorne Deming, author of A Woven World and Stairway to Heaven
