“Buckle up. Hold tight! THE VAST UNKNOWING is like riding the rollercoaster. It will plunge you into despair, exhilarate you, shake you to the depths of your being, terrify you, elate, disturb. And leave you weak-kneed, dizzy and delighted that you saw it through to a safe landing. A ride not to be missed. ... words as weapons, words as balm, sometimes words that puzzle, words that arouse...In her poem, “At the Writers' Retreat”, Shiffrin quotes Anais Nin, 'There are no writer's blocks, only secrets we are afraid of telling.' Nancy Shiffrin isn't afraid. And no one will remain indifferent to the virtuoso power with which she reveals her secrets.” Ricky Rapoport Friesem, Poetica Magazine

THE VAST UNKNOWING collects a wide spectrum of poetry from Nancy Shiffrin...One of her main questions is Whoare we? What made us that person? She explores a number of sources of our identity, relationships, religion, and the stories we are told when we are young...(in the poem) “My Shoah” (Shiffrin) brings together many of her disparate threads—family, religion, ...evil..and details from her personal history—and makes them work together. When she is at her best, as in this poem, Shiffrin produces deep powerful poetry. Luckily, she is at her best more often than not in this deep, expansive book. G. Murray Thomas,
