Ruth Sabath Rosenthal
"Facing Home and Beyond" is bursting with life, teeming with vibrant portraits of grandparent, mother, father, sister, husband, red-clad women, and more... Poems skillfully focus on birth, sex, marriage, aging, dreams and death, while others — often done with rich humor — reference food, animals (including parrot and porcupine), and the poets, Whitman, Yeats, Dickinson, Adrienne Rich. Here is poetry that throbs with vividly presented human experience.
— Robert K. Johnson, Poet, Author, Former Ed

It’s with passion and humor that Ruth Sabath Rosenthal dives into the complexities of family life in her shining chapbook Facing Home. Forthright and fearless, vulnerable and tender, each poem illuminates an emotional moment between human beings. There is purity of purpose and daring here. Rosenthal’s boldness, insight, & lived, earned wisdom embrace her readers with each line.
