“Judith Pacht’s Summer Hunger is nothing less than a superb collection of poems. Summer Hunger encompasses wry daily reflections as well as sobering and profound historical meditations. With enormous composure and poise, Judith Pacht is able to move her reader deftly between her elegant wit and calm wisdoms. This collection is an exceptional and memorable achievement.”
—David St. John
“Beneath the quiet, polished surfaces of these poems churns a tumult of life experience that is both lyric and public, personal and political. The poems in Summer Hunger dazzle with a formality that barely contains chaos, with humor and wit; and like all good poems, they leave us with intriguing questions as well as answers.”
