My artwork graced two book covers for Snuggly Books last year. I been quite overwhelmed, so finally getting around to posting about them now.
The Man From Düsseldorf:
A Tribute to Claus Laufenburg
There was something about Claus Laufenburg that drew them, mothers and daughters, princes and paupers, spicy Spaniards and jet-set Swedes, to him. Was it his dangerous swagger, his arts and skills of passion, or the glittering universe of his gigantic collection of Rumanian limited edition hardbacks?
In these five stories of reckless lust and steaming blood, filthy talk and degenerate banter, by five of the boldest voices in the New Pleasant Movement, the reader is invited to explore the ins and outs of one of Germany’s most beloved bibliophiles as he moves through the world of physical matter. The book that Hollywood refused.
When a Girl Loves a Girl
In A Girl Loves a Girl, British poet Jeremy Reed revamps Sappho, the legendary archaic Greek lyric poet from the island of Lesbos. As with all his audaciously frontline poetry and fiction, Reed places history as now in the present, mediated over by update, rather than consigned to the irretrievable past. As a pioneering reaction to academic attempts to literally recreate a poetry that exists only in fragmentary form, he remakes and expands on the possibilities of meaning in predominantly same-sex motivated poetry in a way that will bring one of the greatest poets of ancient Greece alive to 21st-century readers. Only Jeremy Reed would dare override scholars from the viewpoint of presenting Sappho in a legacy that extends to new generations of her admirers, as a symbol of love and desire between women.
