Fall Book Releases from Gival Press

Riverton Noir by Perry Glasser, winner of the 2011 Gival Press Novel Award

“In Riverton Noir, Perry Glasser browbeats high and low brow art into a work of sublime halftone pulp picture printing, shading stuttered shadows with the darker side of your so-called comic book. His pointillistic prose pops like Pop Art, but it’s as pleasing as all get out in all that it knows and shows.” —Michael Martone, author of Four for a Quarter

Grip by Yvette Neisser Moreno, winner of the 2011 Gival Press Poetry Award will have its book launch on November 18, 2012 at Busboys & Poets on 14th St. NW in Washington, DC.

“'Some of us live at a slant',” the poet Yvette Neisser Moreno writes in Grip and then proceeds to show us how, in language soothing and startling, both. The poems are 'a slow plea/for the beating of human hearts,' whether among the conflicts and struggles of the Middle East or within a single family or a single one of us wrestling with her grief. These are poems of great humanity. Read them for their crystalline truths and for the joy they find in our difficult hearts."—Sarah Browning, director of Split This Rock and author of Whiskey in the Garden of Eden

Books available from BookMasters ( /T: 419.281.1802), Gival Press directly, and via and Barnes and Noble.


Martin Ogle Reflects on Mother Earth

If you are wanting to read something about the effects on Mother Earth and enjoy learning about nature, take a look at Martin Ogle's new book In the Eye of the Hawk. Martin is a former Arlingtonian lost to the wonders of the mountains of Colorado.

"Mixing humor with pathos, In The Eye of the Hawk seeks to break down the distinction between human-made systems and nature. Ogle is a student and advocate of the Gaia Theory, the scientific viewpoint of Earth as a single, complex living system. One of the original developers of this idea was the late Lynn Margulis, a widely venerated biologist, geosciences professor and the former wife of the late science writer Carl Sagan. She wrote the helpful foreword to this book, lending further context and pointing to the underlying value of In The Eye of the Hawk. Beyond the scope of its natural wisdom, Ogle’s book is in many ways a future letter addressed to his young twins who he hopes will read it in their later years."
