Eve is delighted to announce her new pamphlet/chapbook:
The House of Our First Loving (Rack Press, 2016)

"Let's hold all of the truths in our arms at once," Eve Grubin writes in this marvellous, 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 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.
(Mark Doty on The House of Our First Loving)
