Reviews / Endorsements

“Torah and garden—two words seldom jammed together in the same phrase. For poet Philip Terman, author of The Torah Garden, it's two words in creative tension: Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament, foundation text of Judaism, in large part a set of commandments, juxtaposed with nature, unregulated existence, wildness.”—Mike Schneider, Pittsburgh City Paper

PHILIP TERMAN is the author of four full-length collections of poetry including Rabbis of the Air and The Torah Garden, both published by Autumn House Press. A professor of English at Clarion State University, Terman lives with his wife Christine Hood and their two children in a renovated nineteenth century schoolhouse in Grove City, Pennsylvania
