Yes, NewPages has taken a foray into the wild, woolly world of publishing. Our first book is a collection of poems by David Fraser. Dave grew up in Detroit with the likes of Andrei Codrescu and Ken Mikilowski among his poet friends, and myriad other 60s artists and musicians, all before they became great, fizzled out, or disappeared. Dave may have left Detroit, but Detroit never left Dave, and his writing is a blend of brick buildings, hot pavement, jazz and indie rock, and the deep woods, cool flowing rivers and tempestuous nature of “up north” Michigan. He’ll be reading at his local town library in April, so we’ll see if we can get some decent YouTube video. In the meantime, the book is available directly from NewPages: catch it here. A limited number of signed copies available while they last; make a note in your order form if you’d like one.
