"The Chassidic Trauma Unit" now available!
"The Chassidic Trauma Unit" by Abraham Boyarsky is now available!
“Through this fast-paced novel, replete with kidnappings, espionage and fugitive war criminals, Abraham Boyarsky captures the Chassidic communities, their lives and their voices.”
Sender Pleskin is a self-proclaimed trauma specialist dedicated to serving his Chassidic community and to ‘gently’ nudging it into modernity.
When a Bubmer Hasid child falls inexplicably into a coma, Sender and his team jump to action. Hunting down leads in his investigation, Sender follows the signs that he interprets to be divine providence as they lead them down a circuitous path that will test not only his faith, but all he was and is.

Dime Show Review on "Many Full Hands Applauding Inelegantly"
There are many avenues a poet may take and I am pleased that Darren C. Demaree has skillfully led me through his good work in, Many Full Hands Applauding Inelegantly. The poetry in his collection is representative of clear thinking and astute observations of self and surroundings. There is no battling here; as a reader, it's a pleasure to surrender to Mr. Demaree's tides and eddy's of language. Bravo! I enjoyed this collection - and will continue to enjoy it again as a touchstone of good poetry.
