From the works of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera to New Year's Eve spent at the infamous Coach and Horses dive bar to the seeming simplicity of breakfast with her father, these poems connect on a profoundly personal level.

Tales of a Multiverse in Peril

by William Bradley
ISBN: 9780993769047

Drawing much from the pulp science fiction of the early 20th century, Bradley’s chapbook explores both the everyday and the contemporary world with a clear eye to that tradition. From the coming of age tale of the insect queen to the a modern take on Saint Nick to a meditation on the real world use of Superman’s powers, Bradley’s collection is a thoroughly enjoyable collection that conjures up works of Cooley Windsor and Richard Brautigan. A true border crosser, Tales of Multiverse in Peril! is the first in our Cities of the Straits Chapbook series
