Bonnie Bright speaks with Poet and Jungian Analyst, Paul Watsky, as he offers up the story of how he was led to each career, and shares his work that opens the door into the deep poetic leanings of soul. Telling the Difference is the only book of poetry (featured in the month of October) in the 2012 free online Depth Psychology Alliance Book Club.

"To quote Norman O. Brown quoting Euripedes, "God made an opening for the unexpected," and at long last we have what many of us have greatly desired: a collection of poems by Paul Watsky.

"Paul Watsky's is a singular voice in contemporary poetry, with a range that encompasses the wry, the mordant, the laugh-out-loud funny and the deeply moving, often within the same poem." -Charles Martin
