February 1, 2010. RED CLAY, my chapbook of poems is being published. Buy it now!!

What is being said about RED CLAY?

Eve Hoffman’s is a well-seasoned voice, a storyteller’s voice, the voice of a woman whose girlhood in the south – dirt roads and damp sheets on clotheslines; bombed synagogues and segregation and the Ku Klux Klan – is evoked here, along with her seasons as daughter and mother and wife and widow, in loving detail, in rich remembrance. Cecilia Woloch,  Latest book of poetry, Carpathia

An authentic Southern voice with a universal chord, Eve Hoffman’s poetry continues down that remarkable path of great Southern writers before her. In RED CLAY she tells of children, parents, a husband, school, tragedy, friendship, war and love. Set against a background of sky and earth, her poetry testifies to the enduring power and appeal of place.  Jamil Zainaldin, President, Georgia Humanities Council
