Harriet Rubin's Mother's Wooden Hand
Susan Hahn (Author)
DescriptionRedolent of Chicago's ethnic culture, Susan Hahn's intensely personal lyrics emerge from the world of an extended Jewish family and its neighbors. The voices of these immigrants are imbued with the profound effects and memories of the journey From a patrolled town in the Ukraine/to Baltimore on a boat, then a train to Chicago. Hahn's poetry is about love and the lack of love, about rejection, and about other forces--generational, political, social, and sexual--that overwhelm individuals and cause them to limit themselves both physically and psychologically.
