Big Wilson Is Here!

Well, I've done it - I have published a chapbook! Big Wilson, a narrative long poem, was published last week by Fredericton, NB's Emergency Flash Mob Press, run by the tireless Ian LeTourneau. Here's a little description of what this little book is about:

Music and literature collide in this long poem about grief, loss, and the family bonds that constrain us as much as they hold us together. The hero of this narrative-in-verse rejects the siren call of the stage for a solitary life of authorship, even as he grapples with death – first his brother’s, then his wife’s, and finally his own. Big Wilson is a tender examination of how place, ambition, and those we choose to love ultimately shape who we become. 

Interested in ordering a copy? The best way to do so is through EFMP's website above. This limited-edition chapbook comes hand-numbered and beautifully designed by Ian himself. Don't delay - order your copy today!
