About Swimming in the Rain:

"Chana Bloch is writing the best poems of her life. Death is the Great Master hovering in the distance, but this pleasure-loving poet will not be deterred. Chana Bloch is like a Japanese potter mending the cracked and dinged pottery of experience with gold powder sprinkled from her fingers."
—Henri Cole
