Marc Straus, author of three books of poetry, is a distinguished medical oncologist, art curator and award-winning poet whose literary work has been performed in venues throughout the country. The poems in his latest book Not God -A Play in Verse document one woman's encounter with cancer, a journey through illness whose end, while inevitable, is also unknown. Alternating with the words of her doctor, these poems form a remarkable dialogue of the flesh becoming word, and of the body inventorying --and finally transcending- its limitations. His poems peer into the soul, grasping the hearts of the audience. Straus brings vision to his profession through powerfully reflective themes, revealing the hopes, fears, victories, and defeats in the face of devastating chronic disease.
The reading is scheduled for Dec. 1 at 8pm. The Depot Theatre is located at Garrison Landing, Lower Station Road, Garrison New York.
