The Butterfly Bruises – Palmer Smith
The Butterfly Bruises is a collection of poems and stories regarding animals, the ocean, miscommunication, childhood, Northeastern versus Southern American culture, family, nature versus technology, and the imagination of the introvert. In these lyrical texts, a couple sleepwalks together, a therapist is imagined as a snake, a manatee befriends a widow, a ghost haunts an old Charleston home, and New York City becomes its own character. Stepping into these pages brings about new worlds—some full of magic, others full of mystery.
Walking With Camels – Tony Howson
To survive a mad world you need camels. They are like the Praetorian Guard. Walk with them and they act like a shield-wall, guarding your space so you can try and make sense of what is going on. This book of poetry, prose and pictures allows you to eavesdrop on a personal global trek through the minefields of madness, reflecting on events past, present and future. It starts with a gun to the head, weaves around global trouble-spots and embraces love lost and gained. Treading in camel footprints, you cross continents in search of that elusive cure for insanity.
