EVERYTHING IS RADIANT BETWEEN THE HATES Now Available
We're thrilled to announce that the first release of 2021 is now available for purchase, Everything Is Radiant Between the Hates, by Rich Ferguson.
Pushcart Prize-nominated poet Rich Ferguson has shared the stage with Patti Smith, Wanda Coleman, Moby, and other esteemed poets and musicians. Ferguson has been selected by the National Beat Poetry Foundation, Inc. (NBPF), to serve as the State of California Beat Poet Laureate (Sept. 2020 to Sept. 2022). He is a featured performer in the film, What About Me? featuring Michael Stipe, Michael Franti, k.d. lang, and others. His poetry and award-winning spoken-word music videos have been widely anthologized, and he was a winner in Opium Magazine’s Literary Death Match, L.A. He is the author of the poetry collection, 8th & Agony (Punk Hostage Press), and the novel, New Jersey Me (Rare Bird Books).
Here's what Stephanie Barbé Hammer, author of How Formal? and The Puppet Turners of Narrow Interior has to say about his upcoming collection: Beloved Los Angeles poet/performer Rich Ferguson delivers a tender, complex collection whose 8 sections offer free verse and prose poems ranging from hip satire to elegy and beyond — to gentle mantras that you might repeat to yourself in a parking lot or in bed at night when your obnoxious downstairs neighbor won’t quieten down. Bold, generous and self-deprecating, Ferguson’s work challenges readers to accept grief and dare — despite it, because of it — to dream of glorious things.
