- Eve is delighted to announce the publication of her pamphlet / chapbook: The House of Our First Loving (Rack Press, 2016): Mark Doty’s blurb: “`Let’s hold all of the truths in our arms at once,’ Eve Grubin writes in this marvelous, entirely fresh pamphlet of love poems, in which traditional Jewish sources become a means of naming what happens in the contradictory meshing and collision of the selves love is. “Unfinishing,” she tells us, “creates a longing,” and Grubin’s happy readers will leave these poems hungry for more of this unusual, distinctive sensibility at work.”
You can order The House of Our First Loving from the Rack Press website.
From Alison Brackenbury’s review in PN Review:
I have to come to hope that a Rack Press pamphlet may be a tiny gift-box of unusually good poems. This proved true of Eve Grubin’s chapbook, The House of Our First Loving….Grubin expresses the mysterious reconciliations of marriage beautifully. She is at home with paradox, in the ‘ordered chaos’ of shared books. With the speed that is wit, she flings open the division between the sacred and the mundane….Her poems can sound like liturgical commands, authoritative, but never authoritarian…Grubin is confident enough to be ‘without certainty’. She often takes the risk of ending a poem with the abbreviations of common speech – ‘loving best what we can’t see’ – as ancient ritual anchors in the freshness of daily living. Her poems hold a deep and unusual charm….The House of Our First Loving left this reader longing for more light-filled, surprising work.
