There. Here. was recently reviewed by Andrea Dulberger for New Pages. Following are a few snippets from the review and the full review can be read here.
“In this fourth full-length book by Rubin, I find an author who sometimes muses about life in direct, observant narratives and, at other times, offers images with the compression of Zen koans.”
“The variety of life that Stan Rubin hears comes across in how his subject matter comfortably combines observations of phenomena such as crows, mosquitos, a field in winter with a range of perspectives on human emotions.”
“Here are narrative poems that are often centered on the challenges and elusive mysteries of life, some of which really stopped me in my tracks and led to rewarding re-readings.”
