Default Lines of Flight - poems by Catherine Chandler: Release Announcement

Dear Eratosphereans:

I'm pleased to announce that Lines of Flight, the acclaimed first full-length collection from Eratospherean, Catherine Chandler has been released by Able Muse Press and is immediately available worldwide through Amazon and most popular distribution and retail channels here (ISBN 978-0-9865338-3-9). Or, just go to Cathy's website, www.catherine-chandler.com, or the Able Muse Press website, www.ablemusepress.com.

Please, join me in congratulating Cathy!


Lines of Flight - poems by Catherine Chandler
(with a Foreword by Rhina P. Espaillat):
Blurbs from Richard Wilbur, Eric Ormsby and X.J. Kennedy--

Lines of Flight is the first full-length collection from Catherine Chandler, an acclaimed American poet of quiet elegance whose simple style belies the range and depth of her poems. She is equally at ease with poems of nature as with those of people, relationships, landscapes and realms—the domestic, the foreign, even those scanning the vast unknown of space or the esoterica of science. These poems, carefully crafted with formal dexterity in contemporary idiom, are deployed with precision in a showcase of forms such as the villanelle, sapphic, ballad, pantoum, triolet, nonce, and the sonnet—Chandler's specialty, for which she won the Howard Nemerov Sonnet Award.
". . . One of the things that poetry—when it's very good—does better than anything else is to suggest conflicting things at the same time and confront the reader with the possibility that both may be true. This book, which is extraordinarily good, does that to perfection."
                                                                                     – Rhina P. Espaillat (from the Foreword)

Cheers,
...Alex

Hey, Maryann - it's not pre-order for Cathy's book. It's the real order, because it's released and available now! (Only Wendy's book is still on pre-order until the May 2 official release date, and that's so to make sure that Poetry's first-publication agreement for one of the poems in her book is not violated.)

Cheers,
...Alex
