OUT NOW! LIVING IN THE LOVE ECONOMY!

29 Mar

We want to thank Patricia, Erica and Anselm for celebrating with their poems last night. Much thanks to Berl’s and everyone who came out. Thanks to all the supporters of POETRY and THE ARTS!

Living in the Love Economy is out and is a force to be reckoned with. There are limited copies– get’em while they’re still around!

“Living in the Love Economy asserts, and asserts with an erotic seducing, and with a constant heartbeat of rhythm and flow, that personal record is Historical Record, in particular how damn well it includes and remembers, its wealth of detail, its trickster movement of forward and switch, its ability to connect and inscribe palpably, while ever staying live. “The material remains of a love affair” maybe “are small” but the histories of LITLE are Big, Broad, Engaged, Mourning, Joyful, Ecological, Intimate and Caring. Here, and elsewhere, but particularly here, Patricia Spears Jones’ poetical tracking is a people’s history that morphs, breathes and literally feeds.” —Rachel Levitsky

Video of the reading will be up soon.
