Debra Cash’s poetry is evocative and accessible and beautiful...
The poems based on stories, language and associations connected to the Passover Haggadah are especially powerful. They do what art is supposed to do: give us a new way to see. Her insights are sometimes provocative, sometimes wistful, sometimes even angry, but they are also always wise. These poems will deepen and broaden the experience of Passover for Jews for generations to come. “Who Knows One” is just breathtaking, and deserves a place in the canon.
