Edwardsville by Heart

5,000.00

Edwardsville by Heart is “the magical place between poetry and travelogue”, according to BrittlePaper.com. It is a collection of 70 poems covering events, people, places, and other random impressions around the American midwest, from 2009 to 2012 when the author lived there as a student and Fulbright scholar. Howard Rambsy II (Professor of English, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville) calls the book “an artistic map disguised as a volume of poetry”, while Geoff Schmidt, author of Out of Time (University of North Texas Press) says it “gives us fresh eyes to see what we thought was familiar.” Chris Abani, author of GraceLand and Sanctificum, says its “nomadic drive… propels the reader through the exploration of self as home, as nation, as language, as love and as displacement.” More at www.edwardsvillebyheart.com
