Ever been bowled over by a brand new idea? (New to you, I mean.) Well, I was bowled over today by poet Katy Evans-Bush’s “virtual book tour” on Jilly Dybka’s indispensable Poetry Hut Blog. Evans-Bush’s book, tantalizingly entitled Me and the Dead, has just been released by the British literary press Salt Publishing as part of their Salt Modern Poets series. Based on Jilly’s interview, and on the experience of reading an extraordinary poem from the collection (“The Bog of Despair”), I’m placing my order today.
I’ve not included my customary links because I hope all Perpetual Birders will go to Jilly’s interview and explore from there.
Virtual book tours. Who knew?
