Chapbook(,) Goodness(!)

over my dead corpus
My new chapbook.

You can’t tell in the picture, but the cover of “over my dead corpus” is shiny metallic silver. (Yay for book bling!)

Pearl Pirie’s “over my dead corpus” is a feast of sounds, playful and thoughtful poems culled from the corpus of the world.

The main source corpus is over 500 pages of scrap notes that served as fodder for recombinance.

Some of the poems in it appear in the current issue of PRECIPICe from Brock University, and in the just released issue of Switzerland’s Dusie 10: The Canadian issue.

The latter has new writing by: derek beaulieu, Joe Blades, George Bowering, Rob Budde, Emily Carr, Jen Currin, Amanda Earl, Lainna Lane El Jabi, Jesse Patrick Ferguson, Judith Fitzgerald, Asher Ghaffar, Phil Hall, Sharon Harris, Peter Jaeger, Monica Kidd, Anne Le Dressay, Gil McElroy, Barry McKinnon, rob mclennan, Kim Minkus, Pearl Pirie, Monty Reid, Shane Rhodes, Sandra Ridley, Stan Rogal, Natalie Simpson, Christine Stewart, Aaron Tucker and Chris Turnbull.

Tonight’s Lit Landscapes w/ McNair is on the ottawa small press fair w/ Amanda Earl on the air at 6:30 PM, 93.1 or CKCU

over my dead corpus is to be launched at the pre-small press fair reading June 25 at the Carleton Tavern and will be for sale there. There are 50 copies made. $5 each.

Also releasing from Angel House Press and co-launched at the pre-Ottawa Small Press Fair and OSPF is rob mclennan’s chapbook from AngelHouse, “house : a (tiny) memoir”, a combination of memoirs and polaraids.

“I want these stories not to be misunderstood; I want them to be seen as what I remember, what I believe to be true, from my vantage point of some three decades later, and thousands of miles. It felt like reclaiming something that had been far away for a very long time, but no longer. It felt like bringing out the good out from underneath all the bad that came later, overshadowing so much of what had happened before.” ~ rob mclennanM

Both will be available at the Angel House table at the Ottawa Small Press Fair the afternoon of June 26th at the Jack Purcell Community Center. Come and see all the tables and literary goodies!
