I thought that I'd make a non-restaurant-related post to let you in on some exciting news. Regular People Reviews reader Mather Schneider has just had his first full-length poetry collection, Drought Resistant Strain, published by Interior Noise Press. Mather himself made the cover drawing and I must say it looks downright gorgeous.
In case you missed the links up above, you can order this handsome, perfect bound, 128-page edition by clicking this word right here. This is not your Ladies Literary Club fare, nor is it filth devoid of feeling--it's just right. It's got humor and heart, a couple of things missing from a lot of poetry today. It's got javelinas boxing each other right on the cover for crying out loud, and you know how The Restaurant loves a good battle. But, like most things in life, it's the stuff on the inside that counts and I can tell you it will not disappoint. Do yourself a favor and pick this up. It also makes a great gift.
And just in case you missed the implication--People Reviews is so good it's read by poets.
