How I Became a Psychologist: Poems


SKU: INR-9780999596524 Categories: , Tags: , , ,


All I can say is that I never read anything like it. Whatever defines poetry as poetry; poetry that makes me hold my breath as I am reading; poetry that is inseparable from the soul of the poet; poetry that makes me blessed that the poet and I are friends–this little book is all of that and more. As Seiden created these poems “the sky was lit by the glow of lights.”
Philip Bromberg
Author, The Shadow of the Tsunami: and the Growth of the Relational Mind.

It is a pleasure to sit with Henry Seiden’s vivid, witty, sly, and stunningly evocative poems about coming of age. Even though my own childhood evolved in WASPy suburbs far from the poet’s urban Jewish landscape, I find myself “remembering” similar milestones. The simplicity of Seiden’s language ambushes the reader with a density of emotion, whether of loss, longing, or the dawning realization of one’s power even over the powerful – and all the joy and guilt that comes with that surprise. This book is a delight to the heart.
