Item description for Between Two Stones: Poems by Joshua Weitz...
After Princeton, this young poet has found himself at MIT, a doctoral candidate of physics. His important first book is full of promise and talent, poetry and science, blessed with the precious balance between the confident voice of a young poet taking courageous strides forward in his work, and the wonder of a tender mind facing the precarious unknown at the beginning of his writing life. Opening with a day in the life in small kibbutz in Israel and ending with poems evoking the ancient carvings of Angkor Thom, Between Two Stones grapples with the complexities engendered by politics and relationships, the inheritance of a living history, and the realities of a post-genocidal state. Marked by an intensity of feeling for place, Weitz's poems move all over the world. With Judaic roots in the collection, the poet never loses his powerful cultural identity or sense of place.

I haven't read every poem here, but what I've read is excellent. I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Mr Weitz several years ago & having a few conversations about life and literature with him. What can I say but that he is a talented young man, a poet and a physicist (no, really - Ivy League and all). Poetry doesn't sell, but you should still buy his book. I didn't nickname him WonderBoy for nothing.
