In a world where cultures and religions are recklessly facingMoreBorn in Persia, Wolpe lived in the Caribbean and Europe and finished her education in the U.S.- now the director and host of Poetry at the Loft, a poetry venue in Redlands, California. In a world where cultures and religions are recklessly facing off, Sholeh Wolpe writes careful poems that cast a light on some of what we all hold in common— Billy Collins. The Scar Saloon is a humane and compassionate book in which horror is balanced by love, pain by pleasure, denial by sensuality, seriousnes with humor. Many of the poems are set in the Middle East, but Sholeh Wolpe is clearly a poet of the world— Charles Harper Webb (winner of the Felix Pollak Prize).
