Full Book Title:: Permeable Divide
Author Name:: Ellen Rachlin
Book Synopsis: Winner of the 2018 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Silver Award. Ellen Rachlin's new book is intriguing, ingenious, and deftly wrought, a delight to the mind and the spirit. About it, Elise Paschen has said, In her stunning new book, Ellen Rachlin explores, as if from a philosopher's point of view, the world around her. Molly Peacock adds, In her splendid fourth collection, poet Ellen Rachlin explores what she calls the Permeable Divide' the breach between living and a loved one lost to death, the gap between confidence and hesitation, the gulf between banking and art, and perhaps most devastatingly, the chasm between freedom and habit.
