In a masterful blending of lyric and narrative, Sea of Faith ranges widely across interior states and external worlds. From the Sierra Nevadas to New York City subways, from an imagined friendship with Lao Tzu to a rueful meditation on Coney Island, from a comic and poignant classroom discussion of "Dover Beach" to a sexual fantasy spawned by a tedious poetry reading, John Brehm’s poems explore the human predicament with tenderness, compassion, and unforgettable humor.
John Brehm has published poems in Poetry, The Gettysburg Review, The Southern Review, Barrow Street, Prairie Schooner, and The Best American Poetry, 1999. He is author of the chapbook The Way Water Moves and is associate editor of The Oxford Book of American Poetry, forthcoming. He lives in Brooklyn and works as a freelance writer.

Editorial Reviews

"John Brehm writes on a knife edge. His voice would be ironic if it weren’t for the sustained emotion, the opening to the unknown, the ‘electric calm.’ These elegant poems wear their eloquence lightly; the stakes are high. Sea of Faith is an unforgettable book."—D. Nurkse, author of The Fall
