Prints in 3-5 business days
In 1967 Leah Commoss arrives in Turkey to teach on Karamursel Air Station (KAS), an American ‘intelligence gathering’ base where secret Russian radio transmissions are monitored. She... More > soon realizes there’s more intrigue on the base than in the air waves above it. Leah is drawn into a frenzied dance of vindictive rumor and innuendo, choreographed by a sinister Turkish woman she barely knows, and whose motives she cannot even imagine. After finding a dead man on base, and another floating in the Dead Sea, Leah is dubbed “a walking international incident” by policemen of several countries. Leah’s teaching responsibilities and travel perks can only partially divert her concern over unwarranted harassment, imminent arrest, and the black market activities she’s discovered rampant on KAS. Caught up in this uncontrollable whirl of events, Leah discovers there is no way to safely sit out “dancing with a dervish.”< Less
this tanka whirl By Sanford Goldstein

In "This Tanka Whirl," Sanford Goldstein writes with honesty and humility; his is an everyday world, but it is not without its thrills and spills, joy and anguish. He rages against the... More > tameness of his tanka, invoking the music of inner worlds that have ‘gone berserk’; here, too, he would be Ishmael, driven by his own white whale. Eight decades and he can no more set down his tanka brush, ‘this cascade of me! and my! and mine!’ than this dervish earth can bow out of the cosmic dance. This is a poet who sits, pen in hand, in the eye of the storm, drawing ink from Van Gogh’s swirling petals, Mokichi’s yellow tears, Gatsby’s glitter. . . This is a poet who would have Hamlet tread the boards of his own short song, only to look the Prince squarely in the eye and exclaim: ‘. . . I feel even tanka/ can scale the spectacular’. Indeed, in Goldstein's hands, it can. — Claire Everett, Founder and Editor of Skylark, A Tanka Journal< Less
