Book of the Week #46

From the Box Marked Some Are Missing: New & Selected Poems by Charles W. Pratt (Brookline, NH: Hobblebush Books, 2010)

This volume, by Charles Pratt a longtime resident of Brentwood, New Hampshire, is the inaugural volume in the Granite State Poetry Series.
"This rich collection of new, selected, and previously uncollected poems delights the intellect as well as the senses. Pratt is a sneaky formalist catching the reader up in his narrative and then brightening the page with the most unobtrusive, often slyly slant, rhymes that tickle the ear with their gratifying rightness. This book deserves a wide readership." -- Maxine Kumin (from the back of the book)
Charles Pratt will be reading from his work, along with Becky Sakellariou (her book, Earth Listening, is the second title in this series) at Toadstool Bookshop, Peterborough on Saturday 11/20/2010 at beginning at 2pm. They will also be at Water Street Bookstore on Tuesday, 11/23/2010 at 7pm.

This is a fantastic collection of poetry! Both Pratt and Sakelariou have much to offer, and this series promises to be a treasure for all Granite Staters.
