Benjamin S. Grossberg
Grossberg’s book Sweet Core Orchard was named after an orchard that he managed in Ohio, and rural living often informs his work. Poet and critic Alfred Corn found Grossberg to be “one who intertwines a survey of human sexuality (and gay sexuality at that) with theological questions … one who writes fables using the ordinary materials of daily reality; one who balances the Jewish sources of the Western tradition with its Hellenic counterpart...”
Grossberg has been the recipient of a Pushcart Prize as well as an Artist Fellowship from the Ohio Arts Council. He has taught English and creative writing at Antioch University in Ohio and the University of Hartford. He is the assistant editor of the Antioch Review.
