The World as a Waiting Room

ERB-logo-Color-SmallToday The Englewood Review of Books published its book review of Be Still! Departure from Collective Madness.

Click The World as a Waiting Room to read the review.

Thanks to Chris Smith, The Englewood Review‘s editor, for including Be Still!, and to Madeline Cramer, the reviewer, for close attention to its themes and substance.

Be StillMs. Cramer’s review is the first to lift up the deep affinity between the book’s cover, Vincent Van Gogh’s “Prisoners Exercising”, and the book’s elaboration of the less obvious forms of imprisonment, and our searches, alone and together, for sanity and stillness.

  1. Heartiest congratulations. Absolutely well-deserved. I shared to Facebook, will go back and Tweet it. I also emailed it to the rector and volunteer librarian at St. Mary’s (I had given them a copy just after it came out.)

  2. I posted this and a piece of the review on my post on Sunday. It wasn’t a reblog because my reblog function doesn’t work properly and hasn’t for years, so I have to copy and paste stuff. So it won’t bounce back to you as a reblog, but I wanted you to know about it.
