Exactly Like Love by Alan Walowitz (chapbook, 2nd printing now available)
EXACTLY LIKE LOVE by Alan Walowitz (Osedax Press; 36 pages)
"Because Alan Walowitz is neither withholding nor unnecessarily oblique, his chapbook, EXACTLY LIKE LOVE, is, in fact, 'The Anatomy of Longing,' which also happens to be the title of the first poem in this rich, generous collection. And then there's the welcome wit, as he juggles the sometimes Jewish blues. In deft narratives that never cease to surprise, Walowitz is unafraid to write, 'We've known these people from the ache of having lived.' In his refusal to claim wisdom, he is wise. And oh, so rare." -- Estha Weiner, poet and professor.
ALAN WALOWITZ has been published various places on the web and off. He’s a Contributing Editor at Verse-Virtual, an Online Community Journal of Poetry, and teaches at Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY and St. John’s University in his native Queens. He lives in Long Island, NY, three houses away from the Queens border, with his wife, Jeanette, and daughter, Jamie.

Beautifully made, high quality paper and nicely bound with moving writing! Shipped very quickly, and they even kindly gave me an extra zine!! Highly recommend.
I savored this collection, not wanting it to end. Walowitz' imprimatur is in each poem: humor, warmth, history, experience, thought, and more. Whether starting from a piece of personal history, a current event, or a hybrid of the two, the end results are magic. Highly recommended!!
A wonderful collection of poems. Buy it. Read it.
Been following Mr. Walowitz's work for quite some time...good to see him get his poetry out there for all to enjoy now...
