Presenting fifty startling poems — alternating between its authors, a Jew and a Christian — this volume possesses a haunting poignancy unlike any other book of Holocaust poetry.
It has probably been thirty years since a book of poems has affected me the way this one has. . . . Heyen and Brodsky tear the reader from abstractions to images which promise to sear, and to stay.
— Four Quarters
Falling from Heaven is a painful and poignant offering which reminds me that none of us has survived the Holocaust without scars. Yet, the distinguished work of the poets gives us the hope . . . we can avoid a recurrence of such horror.
— Maya Angelou, author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
A breakthrough book in Holocaust literature which will have enduring impact.
— Robert A. Cohn, editor in chief emeritus of the St. Louis Jewish Light
