Amusing, candid, and engaging, Marriage and Other Leaps of Faith displays universal aspects of marriage and an exploration of this human journey in other life leaps.
Greensfelder shows “…any long relationship can never be one thing at a time, only a counterpoint of feelings: resolute, funny, nostalgic, fearful, joyful and often astonishing.” (Diane Stevens)

Greensfelder achieves accessibility, and Biting the Apple would be a good collection to hand to any person who claims not to be able to understand contemporary poetry.
