The essence of a modern-day poet, Miriam Stanley's second book, Get Over It, ecompasses 84 pages of original verse with subjects spanning world politics to the personal turmoil of the human psyche; musings of life, death, love, hate, joy, despair, laid out for observance and celebration.

Getting Over It is a a natural representation of Stanley's comedic/tragic style of writing that has earned her an honored place among New York City's crystalized poetry movement of the Lower East Side.


The eldest of three daughters, Miriam Stanley was born to Jonathan and Paula Rosefeld in New York City, and raised in Morganville, NJ. She joined the New York poetry scene in 1966, and has since been featured in over 30 readings , festivals and events, both locan and international. Her first solo book, Not To Be Believed! (Rogues Scholars Press) was published in 2005. Her work also appeared in the anthology Skyscrapers, Taxis and Tampons.

When she is not writing, Miriam serves humanity as an art therapist in the New York City hospital system.

These poems, burning with anger, hurt and despair, give a light that does not dazzle nor flicker, but stares steadily at the world that meets its eyes.Jee Leong Koh, author of Payday Loans
