Book Launch & Poetry Reading

The following text is taken from Front Magazine, vol. VI, no. 5, p. 8, May/June 1995:

Tsunami Editions is pleased to announce the publication of The Garcia Family Co-Mercy by Melissa WolsakThinking of You by Dan Farrell and from Leech Books, Peter Culley’s The Climax Forest.

The emphasis of these books is on writing itself and their strange, sometimes opaque poems reveal the force of writing, how ordering, sequence, sound, limits and conditions assert value and how these values live through us. These three poetically innovative writers disturbed any sense of the settled relationship with language, and instead invite the reader into a field where “meaning plays and composes before our eyes.”

Come to the launch, buy the books, drinks the drinks, hear the readings, and help celebrate the arrival of more dynamic and challenging poetry from newly published North Americans.
