The Woman With a Million Hearts

Loren Kleinman brings a poet's sensibility to her captivating memoir that is at once serious and sly, self-deprecating and a powerful declaration of self. Her memoir is less about memory than it is a fine-tuned, near magical consideration of the small details that ultimately make manifest the large passions of her life. Her edgy meditations are a bit like a delicately rendered Lost and Found for the great grab bag of human experience--instantly relatable, brash, intimate and true.

Stay With Me While

Kleinman, a recipient of the Spire Press Poetry Prize and a Pushcart Prize nominee, brings longing and love to the fore in her latest collection. This collection of prose poems demonstrates a step change in how contemporary American poetry can be written, and ultimately consumed.

Poems such as I Let Him, Half-finished Garden, and The Heart, a Lost Child, show how the author grows on the page, opening herself up to her audience – offering her inner workings to demonstrate how raw love can be.

 
Stay With Me Awhile is provocative and stirring, a lyrical explosion of ideas that will make you howl, cry, and laugh, hungry for contact, longing for connection.

Breakable Things

From the breathtaking author of The Dark Cave Between My Ribs, Loren Kleinman, comes the intense and heartfelt new poetry collection, Breakable Things. Look for the release of Breakable Things this March.


Breakable Things is a rattling tribute to the fragility of consciousness and memory. “I’m cut on the floor, / porcelain in the skin, / and he breaks / he breaks he breaks he breaks me,” Loren Kleinman writes. Fastened with pinching, deep detail, the shock of loss and a seasoned sense of being resonate throughout this book. Here Kleinman describes the bewilderment of being and the feelings that come from breathing, existing. “I step into the dirt. / Its dampness / makes me feel I exist.” Caked with shame and smoke, soot and blinking bugs Kleinman renders a panorama of sharp, dazzling poems that haunt and captivate us long after the reading of this book is completed.

The Dark Cave Between My Ribs

After disaster, there is always the possibility to love again.

Poet Loren Kleinman invites us to witness snapshots of a complex life-including accounts of abuse, grief, suicide, love, and loss-rendered poetic yet accessible. The Dark Cave Between My Ribs appeals to all who crave an authentic voice that is tangible, unique, and universal.

Loren Kleinman's poetry is staring you dead in the face and daring you to blink. Not much so stark, has ever dared to be so cleanly beautiful - the lines crisp, the silences their own loud singing. Nothing lets you look away; lets you be left alone.

Flamenco Sketches

Winner of the 2003 Spire Poetry Competition

An excellent collection by emerging poet Loren Kleinman:

Excerpt from "Something for Your Arms I"

Sometimes silence settles and stays so strong-
a thick blanket resting upon our backs
enshrouds us within this place, buried corpse.
Our lips fold underneath a stucco canopy,
My mind exploding delirium;
it is so easy to find comfort here,
against your lips pulsing love sick love sick.

Loren Kleinman writes about longing and loving, touch and loss, truth, absence, and ultimately, the soul. [Her] poems are moving, the sentiment naked, and the language irresistible. I'm grateful to have been invited to into this writer's mind and heart and world.
