Because Judith Herzberg, Dutch poet, playwright, and screenwriter, makes her home part of the year in Amsterdam and part of the year in Tel Aviv, it was possible for her to collaborate directly with the Jerusalem-based American poet Shirley Kaufman on this impressive selection from her poetry. As witness to history and acute recorder of human relationships, this poet writes with extraordinary compassion and superb control.
