Natalie Giarratano Big Thicket Blues
Consider yourself warned: this intricately carved, seamlessly patchworked foray into a boiling machinery of heritage, sin and deliverance may haunt itself into your dreams. Big Thicket Blues is so crammed with music, so lucid and tangled, so lifted into sky past bramble and past the tinnitus of our ordinary pains that it delivers us into a brilliance all its own.
Lawrence Gregory and photographer Birgit Gutsche Stretching Silver Through Blue Haze
An intimate collaboration between poet and photographer, husband and wife. Lawrence Gregory's poems are clean, clear, and honest. Birgit Gutsche's photographs are quiet and contemplative, providing inspiration and counterpoint to her husband's poetry. Together they offer an authentic exploration of the ordinary human experience as a consequence of the ongoing conversation between lovers and friends.
