PRESENTING: Plumstuff

Hello, Friends – – –

A poet-robot … a chain-smoking seductress … a dying connoisseur. All of these characters and more make appearances in my new collection of poems and drawings, Plumstuff, out today.

Plumstuff is a reinvention of my out-of-print debut Plum Stuff. It contains 20 revised poems from that collection plus 40 new ones — and all-new drawings.

Poems and drawings from Plumstuff have appeared in The Walrus, Rattle, The Saturday Evening Post, The Wall Street Journal, Transition, The Feathertale Review, The New Quarterly, Quarterly West, The Antigonish Review and other outlets.

Here’s what the critics are saying…

“This is a book for those who truly love words.” – Cloud Lake Literary

“Bursting full in its depths.” – Cinnabar Moth

“Sit with these poems … give them a 2nd or third go-round. Let them marinate the brain a bit so you can fully savor the flavor.” – The Poetry Conversation

“A wonderful collection of poetry and drawings.” – Grist

There are many ways to get your hands on Plumstuff

In Canada, order autographed copies from The Penny University (my favorite indie bookstore/coffeeshop).

My own online store, The Rolli Shop, ships to every country on earth.

And there’s always Amazon USA, Amazon Canada and Amazon UK.

Whatever the method, I hope you enjoy the book. It was a labor of love and I couldn’t be happier with it.

Take care, friends.

Damn You, Annabeth!

Hello, Friends – – –

I dreamed a film was playing in my head.

Tempers flared, ghosts soared, fires burned…

When I woke, I wrote it all down.

Read my latest short story “Annabeth” – – – a white trash Southern Gothic of sorts – – – in the new issue of Adda:

Note: you might like my new book of thought-provoking poems and drawings, Plumstuff.

Camp Faraway for Bitter Young Men

Hello, Friends – – –

Some years ago, I was a Creative Columnist for the acclaimed Canadian magazine The Walrus. I wrote over two dozen short stories for them, including reader favorite “Camp Faraway for Bitter Young Men.” If you didn’t catch that story the first time around, have a look:

If you enjoyed the story and would like to see more of my fiction on their site, kindly let the editors know by writing to letters@thewalrus.ca. I’d be so grateful 🙂

Until next time, friends.

☕ INTERVIEW: New York Magazine

Hello, friends – – –

I was recently interviewed by journalist Melissa Malamut, who asked me all sorts of questions about my infamous caffeine intake.

The resulting piece — published in New York Magazine’s Grub Street section — is out now.

I hope you peruse the interview when you get a chance — with a cup of coffee, of course.

Whisper: you can always buy me a coffee, too.

Have a great day, friends.
