Drive Me Out of My Mind
By
Price: $9.99 USD. Words: 94,340. Language: English. Published: June 13, 2011 by Emergency Press. Category: Nonfiction » Parenting » Childhood psychology
Drive Me Out of My Mind is a coming-of-age story of wildness and wandering set primarily in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan — its abandoned iron mines, desperate small towns, and heart-breaking bars. It’s the memoir of a boy raised by lawless and itinerant women and how he was cultured — and corrupted — by their hard-living, hard-drinking, and hard-loving ways.
Strata
By
Price: $9.00 USD. Words: 14,360. Language: English. Published: March 16, 2011 by Emergency Press. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » European philosophy
Strata is a series of interconnected lyric prose poems that fluctuate between order and chaos like flocks of swallows rearranging themselves in flight. The rhythmic oscillation of the poems builds into a postmodern story that weaves through the life of a poet who’s migrated from Poland to the U.S.
