"Amy Gerstler on The Attention Lesson" "These poems wake up slumbering compartments of the brain. The Attention Lesson is a sleek fleet of uncompromising, compact, urgent prose poems that feel like freshly chiseled, postmodern petroglyphs. Each piece is an immediate, thrumming, palm sized passion play: substantive and mysterious, awash in off rhymes and spanning the human-animal-object continuum. Images, states of consciousness, facts, descriptions and sense perceptions all morph into and through each other in emotionally useful ways that seem new and surprising yet also quite recognizable. How does PF Potvin do this? Dear Reader: when you figure out his secret, will you write and let me know?" — Amy Gerstler
"In ten words or less" "I want you to know Utah from these pictures of me standing." The stories in this book are quick enough to read during your "in between" times. But the effect of the stories will linger much longer. With each piece ranging from just one sentence to one paragraph in length this collection is surprisingly potent with imagery and emotion. You can't always see the characters in these pieces but you can always feel them. A must read for anyone looking to find the unexpected.
