Box of books – foto Smith
We received our first review of my memoir from someone who does not know us so has no reason to be gentle. Poet William Merricle wrote: “I’m up to chapter five. People should buy this.”
OK flux, we just got a box of our first 30 copies of “Stations of the Lost & Found” by Smith & Lady today. 15 of them go to friends and press so that leaves 15 for sale at $20.
Because we have so few, we can’t hold books for anyone, so it’s first come, first served. We’ll be ordering another box shortly but it’ll be 3-5 weeks before they arrive, depending on when we order, and due to finances we can’t order until we see if these copies start to sell.
We have 6 known readings between now and December 22, with more probably thrown in. Hopefully these 15 won’t last long. If they start to sell, we’ll order more.
Book is 364 pages, 5.06″ x 7.81″ and covers my life and crimes from 1946-2006. Just published by Lady K’s The City Poetry press.
The only official book reading so far is September 29th at Mac’s Backs at 7pm, which will also feature another book published by Lady’s The City Poetry press: 22 Years by Wendy Shaffer — a fine fine book of poetry by one of Cleveland’s best.
Our first reading is Poetry at Pat’s in the Flats Sunday August 26, 2012 from 11am – 3pm. We’ll bring the books.
It may also be ordered online from CreateSpace at https://www.createspace.com/3903652 for $20 + shipping & handling.
Its FaceBook page with comments and excerpts is facebook.com/StationsLostFound.
Here’s the back cover blurb so you’ll be warned what you’re getting:
“Drug orgies, massive refindings of reality, the acceptance of interdimensions. Errant life scout, cultural adventurer, perception tester, court jester, inner seeker, reality adjuster, flow surfer, servant and searcher of Other.
“Born in Bitterroot, raised on Paradise Prairie, farm boy, car thief, Naval Academy, expelled for dope, society marriage, armed robbery, jail, illegal loft dweller, Artcrimes, rat attacks, overdose, celibate, remarried, expat. Ran from the cops ten times, got away nine.”
