*****a Rave review for "Between Soul & Stone"@ Powell's Books: "... Her latest book, Between Soul and Stone, is incredible. This may sound trite, but I can't help but identify Berdeshevsky's work as being like a gossamer web: intensely beautiful, painstakingly crafted into textually dense strands of poetic light. "
*****2 great latest reviews of "Beautiful Soon Enough" & "Between Soul & Stone": "
"In her latest collection, Beautiful Soon Enough, her short stories of twenty-three fearless women “sing like an ocean”— they are beautiful, dangerous, and at times, even horrific. It is Berdeshevsky’s poetic prose that compels these women to life, brings them like apparitions into our world, forcing each to stand out like “the milkiest blue pebble in the park.” We enter each woman through the heart—raw and beating—feeling each and every visceral moment as they also must. Each woman is as alive as if you could “[…] smell her. Taste her. Maybe [even] kill her.” Each feels as if the author herself were confessing naked through open windows,..." [Poetry International]
Reader, ... important, beautiful contemporary collections that, in unique ways, deal with themes that should concern us all. Buy them, read them, re-read them, teach them, gift them, emulate them. They are worthy. (A) poet of supreme grace …is Margo Berdeshevsky, author of the collection Between Soul and Stone (Sheep Meadow Press/2011)… exhibits consistent, magical, transformative lyricism both of image and sound. With Berdeshevsky, one is reminded, for instance, of Company, by Samuel Beckett... Berdeshevsky circles around and around her themes like a bird of prey.
