Shelley Puhak: New Poem, New Review in THE POTOMAC

The Spring 2012 issue of THE POTOMAC has a lovely review of Shelley Puhak’s   prizewinning poetry collection STALIN IN ARUBA. Roman Gladstone writes: “You could say that the poems in Stalin in Aruba are about power, its corruption and abuse, and you wouldn’t be wrong, but this oversimplifies Puhak’s work, and as she notes in “Stalin in Aruba,” ‘simplicity and clarity always obfuscate: actions become ideas we only squint at.’ There’s much more going on here.”

Shelley also has a new poem in this issue titled “Carp.” Once you’ve read it, we know you’ll want to buy a copy of STALIN IN ARUBA…click here!
