The Grandeur is in Them and of Them

Thanks to Phil Constable and the good people at New York Journal of Books for the wonderful review of T. J. Beitelman’s Pilgrims: A Love Story. In the review, Constable writes:

Beitelman has an assured voice that cautions the reader against the excesses of modern society, the “shimmer, shine, and show,” while, at the same time using those very excesses as images and imaginings. The protagonists are searching for something, something grand and worthwhile, and in the end the grand thing they find is the realization that it is all meaningless. The grandeur is in them and of them.

You can read the entire review here.

Pilgrims: A Love Story, winner of the Spring, 2008 Black River Chapbook Competition, is available from Black Lawrence Press and Amazon.
