Books By Somerville Authors 2008

Books By Somerville Authors 2008

More than likely if you pass a few people in the street in Davis Square one of them will be a writer of some sort. So I decided to put out a call for books published by former or current Somerville residents in 2008. They appear in the order I received them:

“This is where you go when you are gone”, Tim Gager, cervena barva press, $7

Simple, yet explosive, this features much of Tim Gager's published poems from 2007.

These Poems are not Pink Fluffy Clouds, Tim Gager, Propaganda Press, $5.

This little square package of over thirty poems packs an emotional punch.

The Man in the Booth in the Midtown Tunnel by Doug Holder Cervena Barva Press $13

A collection of poetry by the arts/editor of The Somerville News. It was a pick of the month in The Small Press Review

Swimming Back Taylor Altman sunnyoutside $10

Set against the changing seasons in suburban America, the poems of Swimming Back chronicle a young woman’s struggle to make sense of her world after the early loss of her father. These poems, with their incredible range of human emotion, effectively transform grief into art.

Eden Waters HOME Anthology, edited by Anne Brudevold, and published by Eden Waters Press $16.50

Diverse takes on the theme of HOME by over three dozen poets and prose talents. Many well-known names from the Boston small press arena will be recognized, and new ones from around the country and abroad will be found. Copiously illustrated, the book is a delight to peruse. Available at local bookstores and online.

The Perfect Insult for Every Occasion: Lady Snark's Guide to Common Discourtesy
Adams Media $9.95

With a cigarette in one hand and a martini in the other, fictional socialite Lady Arabella Snark (aka linguist A. C. Kemp) shows you how to use malicious language and stinging zingers to your advantage.

Way Opens: A Spiritual Journey by Patricia Wild. Published by Warwick House Publishers, Lynchburg, VA, 2008 $15.

Eight years ago, Patricia Wild asked, “What happened to the African Americans who desegregated my high school in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1962?” That question became a quest; Way Opens tracks her journey.

AWAKENINGS by Richard Wilhelm Ibbetson Street Press; $14.00

This collection of poems cycles through the seasons of the year as both the poet and the reader awaken to the magic of nature, art and the life cycle.
