Journey from here to HERE: Poems and a Bit of Prose by Max Reif made its appearance in July, 2013 at the 3rd annual Meher Baba Music Sahavas. The book includes poems from the early 1980s up to the very recent past which the author feels partake of Ezra Pound's definition of poetry: ”News that stays News.”

The book includes much free verse, some rhymed poems, ghazal type poems, and a number of prose pieces. There is humor in such pieces as "The Mast's Discourse". And poet friend Eric Halliwell writes in a forthcoming review, "
Max captures the passion of the mystic, from despair over “the chance that was wasted” to a weeping celebration."


Journey from here to HERE is now available from Sheriar Books in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, as well as Meher Baba Books at Meherabode in Los Angeles, and Searchlight Books in Lafayette, CA.
