I have a new chapbook which we put on sale at Burke’s yesterday. A wee collection of poems about health, drugs and illnesses, both physical and mental. It’s called ‘The Medicament Predicament,’ and was published by Redneck Press, in a limited edition of 75.
Here’s the cover. And here’s where to order it: http://www.burkesbooks.com/shop/burkes/results.html?is_utf=1&mv_session_id=sRXHA9Wc&searchfield=sku%2Cauthor%2Ctitle%2Cdescription%2Ctopic1%2Ctopic2%2Ctopic3%2Ctopic4%2Ctopic5%2Ctopic6%2Ctopic7%2Ctopic8%2Cpublisher%2Cisbn&searchspec=the+medicament+predicament
…here in Upender, where you can also hear me read it.
Thanks for reading and/or listening.

“I can’t tell you the number of “film” books I receive–it’s the shadow side of being an actor. Knowing how hard it is to finish a book, I usually try manfully to read what’s submitted, if only out of respect for the author’s struggle. I felt that way when I opened Memphis Movie. I felt that way until around the second sentence, from which point on I was charmed, entertained, jealous (that I had not written it) and moved to contact the writer to a) introduce him to my publisher and b) try to get someone to make this wonderful book into a film. There are characters in here that any actor would crawl across broken glass to play. It’s fresh, well-observed, true to everything I know about the world of film (140+ films ought to qualify me as knowledgeable) and on top of it all, so much fun, that when I finished it (the first time) I felt like I was saying good-bye to an old friend and had to start again.”
