A Ship to Hold the World and The Marionette's Ascent

This double volume is destined to become a classic work of the religious imagination. A Ship to Hold The World can be described as Dramatic Monologue meets Midrash, each soulful and sensual verse written in the voice of a Biblical character: from Satan to Salome, from Noah to Lazarus. In The Marionette’s Ascent, we encounter the unforgettable character of Marion, a brash and brilliant “everyman” marionette who finds herself on a Dantean journey through purgatory, hell and heaven. These poems are at times laugh-out-loud funny, and at other times, heartbreaking.
