Ravage Jan Beatty Lefty Blondie Press Chapbook

RAVAGE (limited run chapbook)

by Jan Beatty

$20 ONLY at White Whale Bookstore

    "To read the work of Jan Beatty is to experience the sensation of the book itself exploding in your grip. Beatty invents history, a self, and an intimate body-language with rage, precision, and poetic tenderness. A deep, sharp current pushes through these poems. The perfect edge before Beatty leaves us: spent, ravaged, and wet."     — Aaron Smith
