About Me I am a poet, translator, book reviewer, and journalist.

I am the author of two poetry collections, Glued To The Sky and JFK: Lines of Fire (PulpBits, 2003). PulpBits went out of business in March 2007, but you can download free PDF files of these ebooks on my website:

My translation of Israeli poet Rachel Eshed's book Little Promises is published in a bilingual edition by Mayapple Press:
d.htm In its Hebrew original, this collection of intense erotic poetry won the 1992 AKUM prize in Israel. My translation of one of the poems in Little Promises was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Novelist Tsipi Keller says, "It is hard to speak of Rachel Eshed's poetry without mentioning 'fire' : her poems virtually burn on the page, and David Cooper's renditions not only do justice to the original but magnify its richness."

My co-author and I are seeking Jewish-American couples willing to be interviewed and photographed for a book on Jewish-American marriages and publishers interested in publishing this work:

I cover the Jewish culture beat for
lture-Examiner and review books for New York Journal of Books:
