In addition to managing his own publishing imprint, TamTam Books, Tosh Berman has penned a book that was first published in 1990 and now is being reissued by Penny Ante Editions. The Plum in Mr. Blum’s Pudding features a series of poems that reflect Berman’s alienation while living in Japan with his wife, Lun*na Menoh. He’ll read from his collection and discuss the poems with the writer of the book’s afterword, Ruth Bernstein. “Over time my insights into the culture and place has changed, but the poems in my book still have a great importance to me,” Berman says. “I hope readers will get the same ‘buzz.’?”
