Join us on this rare opportunity to meet and listen to the American poet, writer playwright and translator, Kerry Shawn Keys.
In his fourth collection of poetry from Presa Press, Kerry Keys demonstrates once again why he is considered a poets' poet.
In poems as "Tennessee Williams Comes to Mulberry Street, Keys accomplishes in a few stanzas what other writers take hundreds of pages to invent and develop. He demostrates his mastery of poetic compression and lyrical expression in poems such as "Dog" and "Experience" and "Springtime at the edge of Paradise."
Several of the poems are reprinted from international journals such as "Inclusions," "Literatura irmenas" and "The Other Voices International Project". These fifty-seven new pieces by Kerry Keys willy satisfy both veteran Keys' fans and new readers alike with their inventiveness subtle humor and fresh use of the English language.
