Norene Cashen

The Reverse is Also True

A debut collection of poetry from Norene Cashen.

“Norene Cashen's poems are sad and beautiful, and they remind me of why I'm sometimes afraid of poetry. She is not afraid to stare into those huge spaces between the eyes or the fingers.” --Andrei Codrescu

“These sparsely punctuated poems feel like parable or myth, issuing from the lips of a concerned prophet. Meant to be read slowly, out loud, these somber lyrics wrestle the biggies: Truth, war, history, death, religion.” —The Metro Times
