My reading/signing

Corey Mesler will be at Burke’s Book Store Thursday, September 29th, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., to read from and sign copies of his new novel, Robert Walker (Livingston Press, $17.95 paper/$30 hardcover), and his new book of poetry, Opaque Melodies That Would Bug Most People (a…p Press, $8 paper). The reading will begin at 6:00 p.m.

On Robert Walker: A Novel:
“Richly imagined, intense and vivid, Corey Mesler’s Robert Walker will take you down some byways you haven’t trod before. Mesler writes with rare energy in this well-told tale. A memorable novel.”
Steve Yarbrough, author of Visible Spirits and The Realm of Last Chances

On Opaque Melodies That Would Bug Most People:
“In one of the poems in his new collection, Corey Mesler writes: The sky is the/color of Jean Gabin. It’s offbeat, but grounded, insightful and even beautiful—which pretty much describes the poems in this book. Mesler is a poet of the suburbs and the cities, one who moves through childhood to adulthood while deftly trying to comprehend what life is up to and is doing to him. And there’s much on the plate, from birth to death and everything in between, all chronicled with Mesler’s bright shafts of poetic brilliance. The longest poem in the book “Travelers” could be an anthem for a Generation and the Country itself. Opaque Melodies That Would Bug Most People will bug you with delight and a new, profound way of seeing the world.”
Tim Suermondt, author of Just Beautiful and Trying to Help the Elephant Man Dance

Corey Mesler has been published in numerous anthologies and journals including Poetry, Gargoyle, Five Points, Good Poems American Places, and Esquire/Narrative. He has published 9 novels, 4 short story collections, and 5 full-length poetry collections. He’s been nominated for the Pushcart many times, and 2 of his poems were chosen for Garrison Keillor’s Writer’s Almanac.
