About this title

Synopsis:

This anthology is more than a gathering of poems and poets. It is a convergence of paths, a literary labyrinth, and an honoring of the written word. Summer Home Review is the work of nurses, firemen, teachers, healers, soldiers, lawyers, singers, union members, and play writes. While it is true that the poets/writers in this anthology have all participated in the same workshop and that some of them are Vietnam veterans, their poems are neither 'war' poetry nor writing that is of 'workshop' quality. All the poems in Summer Home Review have an edge. Poems by Dorinda Foley Wegener may delight while poems by Gary Raffery may infuriate or sadden but all the work is compelling. Through the book you can trace the literary bonds of the poets and the influences of their poet-teachers like Bruce Weigl, Fred Marchant, Yusef Komunyakaa, Lady Borton, Bill Ehrhart, and Martha Collins. Like travelers in a labyrinth, the poets included in Summer Home Review have reached the center and, with its publication are making their way back to the beginning. This book begins for you at the center. If you choose, you may walk with them. In between the lines they have left for you sacred pieces of themselves. Enjoy the journey.'The writer believes strongly in the ability to use words to persuade the reader, to evoke emotions, to extract humor, and to entertain. Summer Home Review brings this revelation to anyone who will read and listen.' Richard Berred Ouellette

About the Author:

Summer Home Review is more than a gathering of poems and poets. It is a convergence of paths, a literary labyrinth, and an honoring of the written word. While it is true that some of the poets are Vietnam veterans, their poems are not necessarily 'war' poems. The reader will find that poets other than veterans write about battles. Though the poets/writers in this anthology have all participated in the same workshop, this book is neither 'war' poetry nor writing that is of 'workshop' quality. All the poems in Summer Home Review have an edge. Poems by Dorinda Foley Wegener will delight some and poems by Gary Rafferty may infuriate or sadden others but all the poems and stories are compelling. Through the book you can trace the literary bonds and friendships of the poets and find the influences of their poet-teachers like Bruce Weigl, Fred Marchant, Yusef Komunyakaa, Lady Borton, Bill Ehrhart, Martha Collins and others.Like travelers in a labyrinth, the poets and writers included in Summer Home Review have reached the center and, with publication of this book are making their way back to the beginning.
