OK, this has nothing at all to do with boxing, but I know there are quite a few of you literary types out there in the BLH fanbase, and, well, for my friends here, I wanted to show that I occasionally do something with myself besides watching fights and carping in the threads at Bad Left Hook.
So my new book is finally out, and it will mail in a week if you order it from Amazon (link below). The book is a case study of the creative process and an argument for how Walt Whitman wrote his groundbreaking poems. Along the way, I argue that Whitman essentially invented the collage technique in words, long before Picasso did with the visual arts. If you are interested in Whitman, you will probably enjoy reading it, and if not, well, not. I'll let others judge the quality of my argument and my writing style, but it does have the advantage of being a beautifully produced book with lots of pictures!
Here's the Amazon link, if you are interested--and Happy Thanksgiving to our American readers!
