An Out of Body Experience

Aaron Anstett will read at Miss Prothero's Books on Sunday the 17th at 4 p.m. I'm jazzed. His poems pull you out of yourself, slap you in the face, and land you in someone else's skin. He's a lyric poet with a rare command of the language. Magic happens in every line. If you miss the reading, I guess I want hold it against you. But I would recommend that you buy his latest collection -- Each Place the Body's (Ghost Road Press, 2007).

Jessy Randall will be joining Anstett, but she's a different subject. I'll talk about her tomorrow.
