Norman Weinstein

ISBN: 9780923389710       $10.00

In NO WRONG NOTES, Weinstein's vibrant new collection of prose poems, the sentence is a dexterous musical composition where various cultures lovingly collide. A conglomeration of influences are astir in this engaging "Caribbean cubist klezmer kumina whoop." You might find yourself within a gallery "experiencing painted clouds pulling something out of your lungs, or upon a polyphonic page from American history. From Hemingway to Charlie Parker, from The Great American Songbook to the inventor of the Mobius strip, Weinstein's "pounding though not Poundian heart" will rouse you gladly awake"
