poems by Martina Reisz Newberry




RubieTake the Long Way HomeWhere along an altered passageway shall Ms. Newberry’s reader, her interlocutor—her appraiser—find the home to which the book’s title refers…?  In the writing. I must conclude that Ms. Newberry’s poetry is both the passageway and the home it seeks. 
     William Connelly, author UNCONTESTED GROUNDS


These bittersweet poems mine new territory. These poems light the way.
   Alexis Rhone Fancher, author of HOW I LOST MY VIRGINITY TO MICHAEL COHEN


 One poem claims, “I saved nothing,” but in this brave, tender book, Martina Reisz Newberry ministers to our pulled muscle of the soul and saves us, again and again.  
            Francesca Bell, Poetry Editor, River Styx

About this book, Gerald Locklin,(Poetry Editor: Chiron Review) says:
“…sexual and scriptural. Nothing is lost upon her.”

Robert Hedin (founder of Red Wing Center for the Arts, Red Wing Minnesota) says:
“Martina Reisz Newberry’s newest collection is nothing short of breathtaking.”

Albino Carrillo (Author of In The City of Smoking Mirrors) says:
“She reaches amazing levels of passion, her words are even and precise and put together organically, creating startling and beautiful vistas of life”

In this new collection, Martina Reisz Newberry addresses the dream-like quality of our lives.  She says of this book:

“I find myself, at this time of my maturity,
in constant wonder at the way things which have
previously seemed so real, become something
like a book I once read or a movie I once saw.
Please join me on this road trip of high strangeness,
wonder, loneliness, love and…well, the whole damn thing.”






Where it Goes cover 2_5

With intense human vulnerability and wondrous irony, Newberry’s matter-of-fact,descriptive storytelling renders the poignant moments of life in an earnest tone that is both sensuous and nostalgic. WHERE IT GOES, altogether luminous and universal,relates us to one another, bringing us closer to a rich understanding of our world and ourselves.
∼ Anne Tammel, poet novelist

“…Newberry’s double-edged blade of memory is never less than finely honed. She understands that somewhere, everywhere, sooner or later it s a matter of physical, emotional, or psychic survival. In these poems you ll find no small share of humane deliverance one very human life at a time.

David Clewell, author of “Taken Somehow by Surprise: and “The Low End of Higher Things

“We don’t think…conversations with ourselves are poetry, but in fact they are its source….This is Newberry’s accomplishment, and it’s all the more considerable because we’re not aware of the feat. We simply find ourselves unaccountably able to hear every word and every nuance of that “mad” young woman’s most revealing dialogue, and as we trail along, trying to be unobtrusive, we find ourselves falling in love with the dialogue, if not the woman.”
Djelloul Marbrook, author of “Saraceno” and “Far from Algiers”

     “Whether playful or sad, boisterous or tender, Martina Newberry’spoems always feel like affirmations–heartfelt, and hard-won.  “It seems you have to keep loving/a thing so that it can live,” she writes.  That’s the aim of these exuberant poems, and the reader’s reward is to feel again the resilience of the spirit, and the saving grace of language. ”
Lawrence Raab, author of  What We Don’t Know About Each Other,  Winner of the National Book Award

   “Martina [Newberry] captures another side of existence in “Hunger”; that heartbreaking self-inventory when we question our meaning, our purpose. “Hunger” gives us hope, tears down walls only to build upon the very dreams that are unique. Buried passions that surface hot when days are empty, nights are full, “Hunger” will satisfy the reader’s yearning to be free from pre-concieved notions of one’s status in the universe.”
