Ron Singer's "A Voice for My Grandmother"

Ron Singer's A Voice for My Grandmother, a chapbook, reminisces the life of his grandmother from dealing with children to fear of graves being turned over as in the poem Grandma's Bones

"...The funeral company that buried Grandma twenty years ago, a large, respected old concern, was discovered to be overbooked. Gravestones had disappeared...."--here in this short prose poem Singer introduces humor very gingerly.

In yet another poem, Grandma Buttresses the Kosher Laws tells of the disdain she had for pork that she invented a story about a child eaten by pigs after she fell into a pig pen.

Here in a small collection, Singer via the third person brings to life the voice and life of his grandmother who evidently was quite an interesting story teller.
