“Frankel's book of poetry reads much more like prose that has been reduced to its finest images. The work captures the immigrant experience from multiple perspectives, weaving in the history and mythology of both Spanish and Jewish culture, drawing parallels along the way. The ability to capture the depth of a moment can leave you breathless at times, so that what Frankel distills from the experience bears both brute honesty and tenderness. An exquisite rendering.”




Ed Frankel divides his time between rural Sonoma County and Los Angeles, where he is on the faculty of the UCLA Writing Program and the Antioch Los Angeles BA and MFA programs. His poetry has appeared in Confluence, The Dogwood Journal of Poetry and Prose, Fugue, Nimrod, Pearl, Pedestal, and others. He was nominated in 2006 for a Pushcart Best of the Small Presses Poetry Prize, and won first prizes in the 2003 Confluence poetry contest, the 2006 Winning Writers War Poetry contest, and the 2008 New American Press chapbook contest. His chapbook, When the Catfish Are In Bloom: Requiem for John Fahey (Finishing Line Press), was also nominated for a PEN Center USA Literary Award and the California Book Award
