Words and Bones

Pre-Order now from Finishing Line Press:  Words and Bones

“Words and Bones” new from Finishing Line Press comes out this summer. ”Words and Bones” is an apt title for LB Sedlacek‘s fine chapbook for words are the scaffolding in these pages; words which both come from and go to the marrow.  The author’s craft here has a simplicity, an elegance in clarity which makes even the complex, the scientific, not only accessible but familiar as a memory shared by a particularly American yet, ultimately, universally humane collective unconscious…” ~Stephen Mead,  Visual

“You’d never think a skeleton is a complete person. I would have said the same thing about a poem until LB Sedlacek‘s “Words and Bones” came along. It’s a work which truly strips its poems down to their bare bones with all the un-necessary words nowhere to be found, leaving a manuscript of complete and wonderfully brief pieces. These poems expose the often overlooked remarkable details in the every day mundane which can only be seen when a poet’s eyes gaze upon them. The heartbreak, the wonder…you’ll begin to see it in your bones too.”  ~Rick Lupert, author of “God Wrestler”
