 I'm touched by this review by author and poet M. M. Bishop, for my short story A Favorite Son:

Reviewed in the United States on June 14, 2024

I adore the way Uvi Poznansky is able to retell an ancient Bible tale in such a way as to draw the reader not only back into the past, but show how little we as humans have changed. The sibling rivalry is sparked by the favoritism is of each parents favoring different twin.

Her writing flows from her pen as if one was drawing fine silk through one’s fingers for the first time.

Ms. Poznansky, has a smooth voice packed with the delicacy of a fine prose, all the while pulling you deeper into an age-old tale told with a bit of a modern twist.

Few people can keep one enthralled throughout a story that dwells on so delicate of a subject, the greed, jealousy, and envy of family dynamics, and make you almost feel as if you were watching it unfold in front of your eyes. The tale of the rivalry of Yankle and Esav, the twin sons of Rebecca and Isaac of the old testament is done with a masterful pen. Ms. Poznansky’s description, and the retelling of this tale beautifully rendered. I love the way she put a modern twist on an old story.
