“CORE is a poetry collection with themes of suicide, loss and grief, but also of courage, joy and deeply passionate love. It is a journey of healing and survival that has taken the author around the world and through his own heart and spirit. It is the revealing of darkness and light, of beauty and hideousness, and a reliance on the strength of one’s ancestors and their beliefs to inspire hope and perseverance.”

Readers appreciative of contemporary poetry written by a Native American poet who has traveled the world and the broad spectrum of life may be interested in the forty plus poems written in a variety of styles and meters. Delivered from a unique perspective, sometimes dark and powerful, and at others whimsically gentle, work by Red Haircrow has often been described as “unforgettable and haunting.”

Core will be available at Smashwords & its distributors, and other online sources.

ABOUT THE BOOK

In From the Belly, Virginia Bell opens the doors to a gallery of poetic meditations – on the tenderness of childhood and motherhood, the primal pleasures of food and sex, and the joyful aches of family and memory. The poems are by turns ekphrastic and self-consciously confessional, taking inspiration from the art of everyday things.

Influenced by and suggested if you enjoy the following: Anne Carson’s Glass, Irony, and God; Mark Doty’s My Alexandria and School of the Arts; Natasha Trethewey’s Native Guard; Elizabeth Alexander’s The Venus Hottentot; Lisel Mueller’s Alive Together; Louise Gluck’s The Wild Iris; Rita Dove’s Selected Poems; Emily Dickinson’s Selected Poems and Letters; Marie Howe’s What the Living Do; Christina Pugh’s Restoration; Ruth Stone’s Ordinary Words; Heather McHugh’s Hinge and Sign; Adrienne Rich’s Midnight Salvage; the photography of Sally Mann.

ADVANCE PRAISE

Chris Green, author of Epiphany School, says:  “Virginia Bell’s From the Belly is pure pleasure and expertise. Poetry about all home matters secret, scary, and sweet. The body and its generations, our food and art. Poems both comfortable and ominous folded in fine linen but spotted with blood. The book, like a series of intimate paintings and photographs, is perfectly stilled. Bell is never hurried, and the reader is aware throughout of her technical skill, love, common sense, vision, and magnificence.”

Alice George, author of This Must be the Place, says: “Like a painter who rejoices in the wrestle between abstraction and representation, Virginia Bell’s poems respect and illuminate their earthly triggers while transforming this world through an impressive craft and compression.”
