This assortment recounts the tale of leaving the US, the place the writer was once born, and of arriving in Australia, the place she didn't plan to stay.  it's a story of unsettling and resettling, of leaving as an ongoing process.  each one micro-scene is a image of time and position – spanning a long time and moments, continents and conversations, wars, desires and kitchen tables – to seize the mental and spatial tensions among ‘here’ and ‘there’.  Leaving New Jersey is a lyrical re-experiencing of placing down roots and tearing them up, a unprecedented poetic account of a normal woman's quest for home.

Barbara Kamler’s Leaving New Jersey is an enthralling number of prose poems. These lyrical, deeply relocating poems paintings like sepia-tone postcards the place relatives scenes are honed again to overheard speak, glimpsed expressions, streets and dwelling rooms. The poems invite us, quietly, into the wistfulness and uncertainty that shadows relocating from one kingdom to another. Most importantly, the poems display a hard-won emotional intensity and concentration that's on the middle of those indelible, minimalist narratives.  
– Anthony Lawrence

This tale is stuffed with soreness and sweetness.  Readers with stories of loss, separation, and the grim dilemmas of parenting will treasure it for its
precise honesty. These are the kinds of reports it truly is tricky to put in writing approximately,
and it really is much more tricky to carry to such tales the  shaping sensibility
of a poet.  Barbara Kamler’s booklet  is a triumph of honesty and artfulness.
– Kevin Brophy
