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.
