About the Edition

Janice Silverman Rebibo is back! A highly-acclaimed Hebrew poet, Rebibo is now smart and entertaining in her native English and, as always, thought-provoking. In My Beautiful Ballooning Heart, her poems crisscross borders, overcome traumas and love without bounds. Rebibo walks the poetry/prose fence with humor and insight, and at long last in English.
Janice Silverman Rebibo, a Massachusetts native and native English speaker, is the author of four previous books of original poetry written primarily in Hebrew and a volume of popular Israeli poetry that she translated to English. Critics have called Rebibo’s work a bold blend of two imposing literary traditions and a strategic breakthrough that added something new to the war of independence of Israel’s consciousness. For over two decades, her Hebrew poetry was published and reviewed widely in Israel’s major newspapers and literary journals. Today, her English poetry is accessible in print anthologies and online journals originating in Israel and the United States. For her fourth poetry collection, Zara Betzion [A Stranger-woman in Zion], Gvanim Tel Aviv, Rebibo received a President of Israel Award and the Israel Lottery Commission’s Cultural Award, as well as the Steiner Prize from Hebrew College. Within the Song To Live, translations of poet Natan Yonatan, is now in its third printing, Gefen Jerusalem/New York. Rebibo’s poem "My Beautiful Ballooning Heart" was nominated by Muddy River Poetry Review for a 2012 Pushcart Prize. She is the Soul-Lit featured poet for summer 2013.
