Memoirists Zack Rogow and Ona Gritz
with poet Daniel Simpson

In Hugging My Father’s Ghost, Zack Rogow explores the mystery of the father he never knew. Lee Rogow was a drama critic, glamorous man-about-town in 1950s Manhattan, World War II Navy captain—and died tragically when Zack was only three. With sharp pathos and laugh-out-loud humor, Rogow shows his family caught between assimilation and pride in their immigrant identity.

Ona Gritz’s new memoir, Everywhere I Look is about sisterhood, grief, true crime and family secrets. Helen Fremont calls it “profound and beautifully written.” Rachel Simon says, “This is a book that will take hold of your emotions—and, if you’re willing, change you.”

Daniel Simpson’s poetry collection Inside the Invisible is, in Ellen Bass’s words, “…a book of faith. Of desire. Of a blind poet asking, So how shall I live inside the invisible? With close attention to detail,the use of dialogue, and curiosity about the limits of communication, [Simpson] interrogates life and chooses to embrace it again and again.”
