We are really excited about this book! Our friends at Nine Mile Books are publishing a wonderful volume of poetry by our associate editor, Bill Burtis.

One reviewer (me) wrote: “ good comes from telling bad stories” writes Bill Burtis in this luminous collection. Rest assured, you’ll find no bad stories here, for this is a master work of a master storyteller. Few poets are as comfortable in liminal space as Burtis. Fewer still are those who write from within that space with such precise and loving detail, where the scars of childhood, traces of ancestors, and mysteries of landscape all become sacramental. Follow Burtis into liminal space and you just may learn to read your life backward and understand, and read it forward with hope.

Give yourself a gift. Read this book.
