DIASPORADIC by Patty Seyburn
Released: Dec. 31, 1998

"Lighter verses, with suitable forms, praise the sublimity of New York City water or begrudge a friend her superior voice, but most of these resonant poems are God-centered, clear, and profound."
Selected by Molly Peacock for the 1997 Marianne Moore Prize, this impressive debut volume introduces a poet of remarkable versatility and intelligence: Seyburn's gentle wit and winning persona find inspiration in family history; her narratives and lyrics, with their varying lines, draw on her sense of Jewish identity and difference, whether as an assimilated midwestern girl, or in the voices of some lost women from the Bible.
