POETRY SUPER HIGHWAY BOOKSTORE

   Featured this week in the PSH Bookstore:

   Free Stallion: Poems by Amber Tamblyn

   "A fine fruitful gestation of throbbingly nascent sexuality awakened
   in young new language."

      -- Lawrence Ferlinghetti

   "Here's a poet with the courage and liveliness to speak for her
   generation -- and for mine. She is not afraid of politics or
   anti-politics of either the government or of her body, including the
   twists of emotional beauty and deep rage. To paraphrase Emerson,
   these poems are as old as the rock and as new as the foam."

      -- Michael McClure

   Hardcover, 96 pages, published by Simon & Schuster, (August, 2005)

   ~ If you are or were a featured poet of the week on the Poetry Super
   Highway AND  you have a book available through Amazon.com, please let
   me know so we can feature your work in the Poetry Super Highway
   Bookstore in a new section just for former featured poet's books.
   Write books@PoetrySuperHighway.com with your name and the title of
   the book.
