We are very happy to announce the publication of Osedax Press’s first poetry chapbook, Exactly Like Love by Alan Walowitz!
Poet and professor Estha Weiner says of the collection, “Because Alan Walowitz is neither withholding nor unnecessarily oblique, his chapbook, Exactly Like Love, is, in fact, ‘The Anatomy of Longing,’ which also happens to be the title of the first poem in this rich, generous collection. And then there’s the welcome wit, as he juggles the sometimes Jewish blues. In deft narratives that never cease to surprise, Walowitz is unafraid to write, ‘We’ve known these people from the ache of having lived.’ In his refusal to claim wisdom, he is wise. And oh, so rare.”
Alan Walowitz has been published various places on the web and off. He’s a Contributing Editor at Verse-Virtual, an Online Community Journal of Poetry, and teaches at Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY and St. John’s University in his native Queens. He lives in Long Island, NY, three houses away from the Queens border, with his wife, Jeanette, and daughter, Jamie.
