EMAIL FROM MORGAN 5/31/12:
My debut collection of poetry, MIDWEST RITUAL BURNING, was published this month and is now available. My UK publisher has set up Paypal for purchasing online at the Eyewear Publishing website and ships anywhere in the world. It is also available in shops in the UK.
If you'd like to help the book along, please consider ordering a copy for yourself or for a friend!
thank you for your interest, and best summer wishes,
This American debut is an impressive bridge across the Atlantic, fusing US avant-gardism and the British pastoral tradition. (from the book jacket)
Morgan Harlow here achieves that blissful balance for which all writers strive, where meticulous craftsmanship pairs with intuitions and presentiments to create spontaneous and thrilling connections. Her poems and prose poems are flawlessly correct, American, beautiful and true, antic funny, super real or surreal, and knowing. You will recognize a wise master at work here, and you will find yourself in her words.
– James Robison
Morgan Harlow understands how poetry is as much silence as utterance, a quiet majesty. Yet what is said in her poems discloses a world in all its palpability. Indeed, in Midwest Ritual Burning we come to know that world intimately—and it is one in which we are haunted by someone who softly implores us "Look, you can see it now."
- Burt Kimmelman
Congratulations to Morgan.
