REVIEWS

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading Fella Cederbaum’s excellent book of poems. She has a wonderful and unusual technique that works very well and seems to me particular to this poet. Her constant questions get the reader involved and make her poems more meaningful, while the subject matter of her work – freedom, Truth and a peaceful existence residing in every one of us – is very interesting. Fella Cederbaum’s ability to describe feelings with an interesting use of language lends great depth to her work. I was deeply moved by the almost overwhelming tragedy of Fella Cederbaum’s stunning poem What If, [Volume 2] which adds weight to her strong and thought provoking work.”

T.S. Eliot once said, “Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood,” and I find that timeless, living quality in Ms. Cederbaum’s evocative and inspiring work. Her poetry invites an innate understanding of those powerful intangibles we can only know through personal experience, and captures the Oneness alive in all of our hearts.”

“Of Life and Other Such Matters” goes straight to the essence of the world’s spiritual teachings with profound depth, clarity, directness, and often with great humor. Each poem gifts the reader with eternal truths and teachings wrapped in a uniquely engaging poetic voice. This is food for the spirit that one can feast on indefinitely. I highly recommend it!”

“Cederbaum’s poetry invites the listener on a guided meditation along the pathway to introspection and reflection, celebrating the essence of the human spirit. The poetry reveals deep empathy for the universality of life’s experiences, as the poet considers ways of navigating the world, addressing what dwells in the heart as well as in the halls of power.“

“I find Fella Cederbaum as one of the most unique poets of modern times. In her collection “Of Life and Other Such Matters” she impressively dives into the human experience, offering a thought-provoking read. Her poetry is highly inspiring and reads like an inner thought that could be your own.”

“The Poetry of Awakening: These poems range from the mundane (Cadbury’s chocolate and fancy hairstyles) to the metaphysical (karma, pure awareness, the Soul) and they are a delight, and a challenge, to read. Simple and direct, they cover an amazingly wide range of human experience. For those who’d prefer to hear them read aloud, may I suggest a visit to MahnoDahno.com”

“Of Life and Other Such Matters” chronicles Fella Cederbaum’s search for answers to a multitude of life’s important questions. Some are personal, some are existential and some are spiritual, but all are universal. In its pages you will find answers that comfort, answers that alarm and answers that enrich and inspire. The real jewel though is the awe you will experience at the beauty of the questions themselves. That beauty will arouse a fire in your own quest. Before opening these pages, prepare yourself for a very personal journey.”

-Bruce Petschek, Cinematographer, DOP on the Ig Nobel Project and the Banjo Project

“It’s pretty clear that Cederbaum has lived a very thorough and examined life, and her wisdom and creative drive is quite striking as the spoken and music portion of her art makes quite an impression…”
