Barry Fruchter (aka Dov Rose) has been writing for over 40 years but only recently found his authentic voice and his true love. Along with Amber Rose he is the author of two books, Double Helix (Lamberson-Corona 2010) and The Bride of Auschwitz (Forever Amber Press 2010), and, with her inspiration, two others, Selection (California Quarry Press 2011) and Dark Fields of Palestine (CQP 2011). He and Amber are currently at work on two other plays,David’s Song and Eichmann in Palestine, both performance pieces with heavy audience involvement.
Barry is also a political and social activist who strongly supports Occupy Wall Street and other US movements for change. He is a strong supporter of international movements for human rights and national liberation and his poetry and talks reflect that predisposition, including support for the Israeli Coalition against House Demolitions and for Women in Black. His poem “The Brutal Planting of Souls,” dedicated to the memories o f Rachel Corrie (killed in Gaza by an Israeli bulldozer in 2003) and Nan Freeman (killed in Florida in 1972 during the strike of the United Farm Workers) was recently accepted into the Bardsannual Anthology at Walt Whitman Birthplace.
