fun news!

great news to share with you, cuties!

mr. rikrak's {aka rob winger}  newest poetry book is hot off the presses!
and * the chimney stone * is fabulous!

the much anticipated followup to his super dooper award-winning debut * Muybridge's Horse * has hit bookstands, and though i MAY :) be a wee bit biased, you're gonna want one!

i love what the weakerthans superstar & wordsmith john k. samson has to say about * the chimney stone: ghazals *  -  “Rob Winger writes wonderful poems—musical, precise and insistent. In The Chimney Stone, Winger lovingly dismantles some great songs and uses their salvaged parts to build a surprising, beautiful new kind of lyric on the frame of an old one. It is a remarkable feat of empathy and nerve.”   


interested in one? head on over to chapters/indigo | amazon.com to order your copy, or visit fine bookstores everywhere!

and the author sure is cute. guaranteed :)

in the toronto area?
