Dancing A Dizzy Holiness

by Larry Janowski

From the Introduction by Judith Valente:

The finest poems offer us a clarifying vision of what it means to be alive. Larry Janowski is a poet who offers us a window – freshly washed, sparkling in its clarity – in which to view and revel in our common humanity. He is at once the chronicler of the modest and the messy. A poet of the mean and the immeasurable, the unfathomable and the absolutely mundane, the sorrowful and the glorious.

From author and poet, Stuart Dybek:

That In Larry Janowski’s new collection, Dancing A Dizzy Holiness, a poem titled “Confessional Poem,” opens: “Ever wonder what it’s like on the priest’s side of the screen?” The witty title and the intimate voice that will answer this question typifies the complex, compassionate, and accessible down to earth beauty of this book. Down to earth—a stand-in phrase for wise. Down to earth in a way that is critical for Janowski’s credible reach toward the divine.
