We shut this bookstore down several years ago, but still have a lot of books occupying our house. The inventory may be a bit off, so any orders will be checked, confirmed and then billed. All procedes from this sale will go towards the budget for Clarkesworld Magazine. All space freed up by books leaving the house will go to my kids. This sale ends November 19th and the minimum order size is $40.

Description:

"I have said, I think, that these poems are interpretations of what the poet sees on the canvas. I add that they are imaginary biographies, as true as anything that actually happened: they are biographies written the other way around, from the evidence of the art. Pablo Picasso's relationship with women, for instance, as when

he left her a twisted, flattened shell,
curled like wet canvas on his padded chair,
mouth soundlessly screaming
from the same side of her face
that both eyes now started from.

Isn't that, don't you think it is, the way it (actually, metaphorically, what's the difference) happened?"
from the Introduction by Theodora Goss
