As a novelist, Jerry Newman has long enjoyed a distinguished reputation for his wide-ranging characterizations of individuals caught in social and political webs. Now in Sudden Proclamations, his first collection of poetry, Newman situates the reader within the shadowy, mind-lit inner world. Daring to show that human savagery knows no bottom line, Newman also affirms that love permits no upper limit. These poems depict the heart as it calls out to its children, its lovers, itself.

Jerry Newman was born and raised in Montreal. In 1971, he moved to Vancouver to teach at the University of British Columbia where he is presently a member of the Creative Writing Department. His first novel, We Always Take Care of Our Own, published in 1965, was the recipient of the Beta Sigma Phi "First Novel Award" as well as the H.M. Caiserman award of the Canadian Jewish Congress. Newman's story, "My Brother Solomon, the Bible and the Bicycle," was the winner of the CBC Literary Competition in the short fiction category and was subsequently published in Tamarack Review. A second novel, A Russian Novel, was published in 1972. He has had short stories in Prairie Schooner, Fiddlehead, Canadian Fiction Magazine, PRISM international, and Tamarack Review, and poems in a variety of small magazines. Jerry has travelled widely, in Israel, the Soviet Union, France, England, Japan, Greece, Austria, Holland and East Germany. He is the father of three children: Rafael, Adam and Zoe.
