'Family and Jewish tradition are at the heart of Stanley H. Barkan's life and the poems in More Mishpocheh express his love of both. The poems that journey from generation to generation are accessible, original in their unfolding manner, fresh, and threaded with the lifetime achieved wisdom of this international poet and publisher. He brings the reader into the heart of his life, as husband and father, as he opens up a private album of memories and emotions. His writing is visual and its tone is conversational. One feels privileged to be allowed to explore these personal word-photographs of captured moments, the extraordinary residing in the seemingly ordinary': Foreword to the book by Peter Thabit Jones, poet and dramatist. Author, with Aeronwy Thomas, of the Dylan Thomas Walking Tour of Greenwich Village, New York.
