Gabriel Levin is the author of four books of poems, most recently To These Dark Steps, and has published several collections in translation. He lives in Jerusalem.
"Gabriel Levin offers a privileged glimpse into otherwise closed worlds, and he does this with brio, wit, and a gently ironic sensibility. Each essay in The Dune's Twisted Edge is distinctive and memorable, but taken together they form a compelling pattern that arises from Levin's strong affinity for landscape. This isn't only because he is so good at evoking the varied terrains in which he moves, but also because of the central and abiding insight of the book: that landscape and language are mysteriously conjoined." -Eric Ormsby, author of Ghazali: The Revival of Islam"
