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
