Bruce Arlen Wasserman assembled his first poetry manuscript at the age of seventeen and farmed and worked as a blacksmith in his twenties. He received a BA in Mass Communications from Winona State University and is enrolled in Vermont College of Fine Arts’ MFA in Writing program. His literary career has spanned work in news and periodicals, as a freelancer and an editor of professional journals. His publications include three poetry chapbooks and a recent poetry collection, An Undiscovered Country (Horace Simerman Literary Press, 2011). Beyond poetry and a current novel in the works, Bruce is a reviewer for the New York Journal of Books, creates visual art as a potter, performs as a musician in a band, trains horses near Yellowstone National Park and is a full time dentist in clinical practice.
An Undiscovered Country (Horace Simerman Press, 2011) is going further in its travels around the globe. The collection of poems by Bruce Arlen Wasserman exploring love in all its dimensions, is now being sold in Norway, Finland and Sweden and is being carried in the UK at Waterstones, which has nearly 300 shops in Britain and at Berkelouw Books in Australia, one of Australia's oldest booksellers.
These locations add to the expanding worldwide distribution network already in place for the collection. It is being marketed by booksellers in France, Germany, Australia, Japan and Croatia, as well as online in the USA at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com and at other locations worldwide through independent and online booksellers.
Wasserman’s work takes an in-depth look at love in a unique way, exposing the sedimentary layers of this topic that traverses cultures to cut right to the root of the human condition. In addition to its unique poetic point of view, the work is being touted as a pivotal new look at relationships.
