Train to Providence is a conversation between poet and photographer. Rodger Kingston’s photographs were made over a sustained period of several decades, while William Doreski’s poems were written in the short span of a few months. The pictures do not illustrate the poems, and the poems do not merely describe the photographs. But the words and images, brought together here for the first time, seem to have something to say to each other in ongoing, elongated moments caught and framed for close examination.
“[William Doreski is] a master of formal invention and surreal narrative.”
Author, Pretenders and Floating Tales
“His are the poems of our complex, frequently uncomfortable humanity.”
—Michael McIrvin, American Book Review
“Rodger Kingston brings his own unique vision to searching out icons of Americana, and his compositions display stunning qualities of light and color that Hopper himself would have admired.”
—Bonnie Tocher Clause
Author, Edward Hopper in Vermont
Vigil is an eloquent and elegant story, told from the afterlife by a cast of dead teenagers who were victims of a school shooting. Bevins’s poems give voice to the souls who can no longer speak for themselves.
