Riffing on the neurological condition ‘prosopagnosia’ (‘face blindness’), the difficulty recognizing familiar faces, Ron Charach’s new collection of poems explores our struggle to recognize ourselves in others, and to remain recognizable to them across the boundaries of gender, race and religion, health and illness, love and indifference, celebrity and fandom, youth and advancing age.

About the Author:

Ron Charach is a Toronto psychiatrist and the author of the novel, cabana the big, and nine previous collections of poetry including Forgetting the Holocaust (2011). His poems and essays have appeared in most Canadian literary and medical/psychiatric journals. Tightrope Books published his first novel, cabana the big, in 2016.
