Over a plate of eggs and bacon, Barbara Fragoletti Hoffman discovered she was a writer. Named 1st runner-up in 2008 for the Bordighera Poetry Prize her work has been widely published in the U.S. and abroad, in The New York Times and Newsday. She was the subject of a WLIW channel 21 show “Originals” an “Arts on Long Island” series. Her latest publication, The Life & Hard Times of..., marks her second chapbook. Of her poetry, poet and scholar Michael Palma writes: “Barbara Fragoletti Hoffman’s book contains a poem called “The Heat of Burnt Stubble.” There is the searing heat of anger and anguish at the cruelty and violence of the world, whether inflicted by a single gunman or by terrorists in airplanes; the stifling heat of heaviness and oppression, as the spirit struggles with the burdens of family, religion, and marriage; and the glowing heat of sexual desire and its occasional fulfillments.|
