Love & Sundries by Nicholas Reading

Love & Sundries by Nicholas Reading is a collection of narrative poems that haunt and entice, break and repair. Keith Montesano, author of Ghost Lights and Scoring the Silent Film, says: "In his second collection Love & Sundries, Reading balances tragedy and empathy with both fear and wisdom in narrators who often yearn for what they don’t quite know how to achieve. Somewhere between the inner-voice of Mack from Cannery Row and the hard-bitten spirit of Richard Hugo, these poems tether themselves to hope amidst the elegiac emptiness of miles of flat land and peripheral characters who turn out to mean much more."
