ECHOES Poetic Letters. by Alan Parry

ECHOES

Poetic Letters

ECHOES, Poetic Letters, is an intimate journey through a landscape of childhood memories. Delicate, stark, direct, this collection of ‘poetic letters’ invites the reader into Alan’s childhood landscape, one which will resonate with familial familiarity for many of us. Love, loss and relationships echo evocatively through a nostalgic lens that is refreshingly absent of sentimentality. A beautiful addition to any poetry book collection

“ECHOES explores the aftermath of bereavement and the effects of not exploring, or acknowledging feelings and emotions, passed down the generations. The poems are sketches, allowing readers to complete the details. “

CEILING FAN by Kari Flickinger

KARI FLICKINGER MEMORIAL WALL

CEILING FAN tragically, turned out to be Kari Flickinger’s last collection. She unexpectedly passed away suddenly on May 2nd, in the ER. We share this sorrowful loss with her dearest and nearest and commiserate with all those in the poetry community who knew her so well. She will be sorely missed.

CEILING FAN book is an inventive, gutsy foray into the the inner emotional-scape of a woman coming to grips with her emotional turmoil in the aftermath of complex and dislocating relationships. At odds with the ‘narrator-self’ as much as in conflict with events and choices occurring around her, Kari isn’t shy about taking us, her readers on an intimate journey of boredom, lust, despair, rage and reconciliation, in what we come to recognise as only too familiar feelings of experiences we all share, in one guise or another. This remarkable work is over ten years in the making and yet, reads as an intimate conversation of the moment.

Be sure not to miss out by securing your copy and read more about the collection in Behind The Scenes With … in our interview series hosted by Marcelle Newbold.
