Enjoy this blurb & order George Franklin’s book from Sheila-Na-Gig Editions today!

I just love a good blurb, don’t you?




Enjoy these thoughts on George Franklin’s upcoming collection, Traveling for No Good Reason from Omar Villasana Cardoza, Editor of Revista Nagari and of Katakana Editores:

Are we compelled to travel for a reason? What is memory but nothing more than our own way to travel in time? George Franklin shows us, just like Cavafy in “Ithaca,” that the purpose of wandering from one place or era to another is not the destinations, but the roads we build between them that give meaning to our lives. In Traveling for No Good Reason, you will encounter cyclops, the stars’ secret motivations, Goya, ancient Chinese poets, and Greeks, but most of all, you will relive the author’s experiences (and I dare say, even your own) through the looking glass that only poetry can offer to daily life.
