BOOK DETAILS

Albert gives an overview of the book:

Letters to Early Street by Albert Flynn DeSilver is a whimsical epistolary experiment, a turning of the traditional letter onto it’s poetic ear. Originally begun as letters to a colleague, the writing soon transformed into imaginative discourse with the vagaries of a “muse,” addressing emotions, elements of landscape, and the act of writing itself. Letters to Early Street reconstructs “correspondence” as an exchange of ineffable narrative filled with the pleasures of existence. Life is where odd oppositions find agreeable and virtuous balance; where words are meant to incite the insightful. With humor woven delightfully into each missive, DeSilver takes poetry into a fresh act of communication.
