I suggest that you devote some of that holiday cash the Jolly Old Elf put in your stocking and snag a copy of my friend Sandy McRae’s extraordinary new book of prose poems from one of our premier indie publishers, Folded Word. You’ll thank yourself when fangs of ice are hanging from your gutters because you’ll be inside, warming yourself at the fire of Sandy’s crackling wit.
Note the caveat below, however: the first edition is already running low! So take my advice and don’t wait until the glittering ball drops in Times Square….
The Magic Rectangle
prose poetry by
Sandra S. McRae
Paperback List Price: $14 US
Launch: 10 December 2017
With seeming innocence, Sandra S. McRae asks us to “watch how plastic bags and straw wrappers can get caught in the eddy of a breeze,” but then demands “Justify your life” — allowing responses to be double-spaced “when appropriate.” In her hands, “where the hell are the rubber bands?” becomes an existential question. After reading McRae’s poems, we too hear rocks say “It goes faster than you / think. We should know,” and we know we are not alone. A magical read.
