Poetry. Art. "'Ever need a savior?' Joel Newberger's A CAW opens 'like a rose' — 'like a rabbi giving birth' — anguished and ecstatic 'flesh aching' — the body's racket disciplined line by taut line into saying the self — the self in search, in service to the Book. 'Make space teethe' is the poet's charge, till book and body are one utterance, one cry, and 'veins become / Torah's locket.' Here truth is wrested from each letter of the aleph-bet, with the delicate and specific shock of 'a burning petal.'"—Billie Chernicoff
