Paul Czarda drinks whiskey in order to write, and write he must. Driven by his imagination, he has
left the world of others. Then the world comes knocking. A teenaged girl delivers his newspaper
and offers him her body. Suddenly the teenaged girl goes missing, and Czarda finds himself stalked
by a cinematographer obsessed in filming a snuff movie.This is available available as an e-book only

With a style somewhere between a hipster and a Japanese landscape painter, poet Len
Schweitzer has mastered the poetics of image. In this, his first full-length book of
poems, he presents us with such exotic pictures as a “fedora glazed with paris rain”
and a “dead man’s skull rattling with silver coins.” He invites us to recall the scent
of frangipani, the taste of mangoes and honey, the caress of a warm Gulf Stream breeze,
and a hundred other bottled-up sensations that awaken the senses like an after-dinner
tipple, sip by sip, poem by poem.
