This week we’ve been busy getting ready for Edith Pearlman and John Rybicki to land here in Wilmington, NC for their reading this Sunday and to kick off the Binocular Vision tour of NC. So many pictures to come!
In the mean time, here is a lovely quote from a beautiful review by Grace Cavalieri of John Rybicki’s When All The World Is Old.
“There is no norm in poetry as there is no norm in grief and it’s a good thing because this book cannot be measured against any other. There are 99 pages of poems where John Rybicki sings as if he’s in a lyrical palace and other times, screams, cries, intones and rocks with language. … If John Rybicki’s words cannot pierce the film of eternity chasing after his lost love, then there is no sound allowed there at all.”
