"Stuart Kestenbaum, the author of this week's poem, lost his brother Howard in the destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. We thought it appropriate to commemorate the events of September 11, 2001, by sharing this poem."    http://www.americanlifeinpoetry.org/columns/181.html

In Praise of Prayers & Run-on Sentences, from the back cover—

Stuart Kestenbaum writes the kind of poems I love to read, heartfelt responses to the privilege of having been given a life. No hidden agendas here, no theories to espouse, nothing but life, pure life, set down with craft and love.
—Ted Kooser

Stuart Kestenbaum is a poet of immense fluency, elegance, and deep humanity. I bow to his work.

—Naomi Shihab Nye
