Paperback: $17.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Padre Pio, Capuchin priest, stigmatist and “humble friar who prays” is one of the most fascinating figures of the twentieth century. Among the countless writings dedicated to telling his... More > story each year, the present biography stands out for its thoroughness and the hitherto unknown information about him which it provides. For the most part it makes use of his own diary and the sworn testimony of those who lived with him and knew him best to reconstruct the details of his long and fruitful life. Gennaro Preziuso was given extraordinary access to these materials having collaborated in the diocesan process that studied the life and virtues of this famous Capuchin friar. He was thus able to uncover the roots of Padre Pio’s profound wisdom which was honed in the crucible of suffering and nurtured by his prolonged dedication to the apostolate of the confessional where he administered the sacrament of reconciliation to countless thousands of the faithful.< Less
Lonely Earth By MaryJane Thomson
eBook (ePub): $6.91
The poems in MaryJane Thomson’s second collection, Lonely Earth, show an important development since her debut collection Fallen Grace. Moving from a more personal and... More > ‘confessional’ poetry, the poems in Lonely Earth take the reader out into the urban streets of the 21st century. An urgent political and public voice is at work in these poems with hints of reggae, hip-hop, soul, folk and blues driving the musicality and the rhythm of the lines. Shorter, minimalist poems transmit, like antennae of the world, concise imagery and deep thought. Lonely Earth is a diverse, edgy read grappling with contemporary issues like care of the environment, humanity’s past, its wars and consumerism. At the heart of Thomson’s poems is a committed voice that cares deeply for the world and its people.< Less
Encounters By Ken Scott
eBook (PDF): $5.00
Encounters focuses on interactions with family, friends and strangers, and my perceptions of them. “Imprint,” a poem about a child experiencing the natural world, introduces the... More > collection with a warning not to forget the common, that it contains truths to be remembered and discovered. This thought carries readers into the rest of my collection. Diverse in subject matter, the poems range from the lighthearted to confessional and serious. In reading Wordsworth, I like the way he takes the common subjects and “throw[s] over them a certain coloring of the imagination,” making the usual seem unusual. “Amishland Cow Tipping” exemplifies my incorporation of this idea when the pushed cow tips, allowing it to see the world in a fresh way. While I want my poetry to be entertaining and enjoyable, I hope that it leaves my readers encountering the world in a new, fresh way.< Less
Confessions of a Hopeless Romantic By Charles Banks Jr.
Paperback: List Price: $12.00 $10.80 | You Save: 10%
Prints in 3-5 business days
"Classic poetic forms combined with the modern confessional of free verse, these poems inhabit succinctly woven rhymes, verses and stanzas while professing the profoundest faith in romantic... More > love--entanglement, desire, erotic sharing and compulsion. This is a "hopeless confession" filled with the irony of hope in love. Soft, gentle, fearless and shameless admonitions of losing oneself in the other are no threat. The delusion and sacrifice towards the profession of love remain an insignificant pleasure. The confessions here return to Neruda's erotic--loss of self parallels and postulates entirety. Love resonates as the opposite of self gratification and self preservation. There are no boundaries. A poet speaks in tandem with the ancient scribes of Egyptian Love Poems--sharing an exotic papyrus of altruistic love." *As written by Poet Sonia Di Placido.< Less

More > private, painful events in their own lives without actually sharing every minute detail with the world. In My Shoes poetically portrays Lyn Crain’s journey through cancer, as well as physical and emotional abuse. Her poetry is written from the heart and can be titillating or terrifying in a world that is often more black than white. Crain felt the need to use her voice to share her story and, in turn, open the discussion for women suffering under similar circumstances. Crain is grateful that domestic violence is not a taboo subject anymore, however very few poets have addressed the subject in any length. Silence enables, but by raising voices, it is possible to also raise awareness that domestic violence will no longer be accepted as the norm.< Less

On Daring to Eat the Pear: Heretical Narratives By Edward Simon
eBook (PDF): $5.00
"On Daring to Eat the Pear" engages narratives of a heretical nature. Ancient blasphemies, and the remnants of dead faith all commingle. Simon tells stories in a language profound and... More > enigmatic. Simon mines alike the obscure and the famous of history to write poems that are only confessional to the nature of reality. In these pages you will find stories in poetry ranging from a blues singer named Cadmon (or Kadmon) Delph who generates reality with his guitar, to the surreal and magically realist story of idol smashers being chased away from a dissolved monastery by a screaming, burning statue of Christ. Simon's work consciously doesn't imitate the staid conventions of modern lyric poetry in either intent, structure or theme. The narratives are all unified by a deep seated desire to find a new verse, one that is able to explicate the many functions of our post-faith religious condition. Simon's poems are prayers to a God who isn't there.< Less
