Book Review | Songs Of Flesh Songs Of Spirit by Mark Shepard

Tell me something I can dance to.

Mini Book Review

I haven’t read anything by Mark Shepard before this. There were some pieces that I didn’t understand the point of, but others that I really liked. I was also a little taken aback by the length and had to check that on Goodreads; the book is extremely short at 28 pages.

As the click of a boot heel fills a cathedral,
so a soul may find itself equal to Eternity.

Thank you. NetGalley for the chance to read and review this!

In this selection of poetry and short prose, Mark Shepard shares with you his twin obsessions with God and sex — often in the same piece. Perhaps not since Solomon’s Song of Songs have the lofty and the worldly been so entwined, like two lovers struggling toward communion. Humor, insight, reverence, sensuality, a penchant for austerity, and a gift of delight — you’ll find them all in “Songs of Flesh, Songs of Spirit.”
