I have for years been collecting Expat Poets. Why? Because poets on a journey tend to be more interesting than poets who aren't. And, of course, they have so many places and experiences to share with you. Tamar Yoseloff's poetry takes you on journeys of the heart and mind; after reading one of these poems you do not end up in quite the same mental and emotional place you started from.It is sometimes said of a quarrelsome man that he could start a fight in an empty house. Tamar Yoseloff can and does start a journey in a closed room, looking out at a star she can't see.'Sheenagh Pugh.
