Toad Press Paperbooks
from Imagine Books and Records
We always knew Imagine Books and Records would be more than just a bookstore. Almost as soon as we opened our doors, we began hosting performances and have now held more than thirty events. Last fall, we began publishing Toad Press Paperbooks. We now have three four available and Wasteoid Daydream by Paddy Carrillo is slated for release in fall of 2015.
Prairie Oysters, the latest book from Don Hurd, is now available on Amazon. You can order your copy now or pick one up at the book signing on September 18th. Click the image to order.
Characters of Age is the stunning debut of a remarkable poet: Corrigan James Moran. Recalling the early works of Delmore Schwartz and Dylan Thomas, these poems are filled with the passionate intensity of youth.
Studebaker to Bristol is what William Carlos Williams would have called a pure product of America. Deeply rooted in an all but vanished past, these poems are a celebration of Mid-Century American hometown life. With honesty, warmth and humor, Larry E. Engle takes readers on a journey through the heartland.
A Lesser Grief is a collection done in the style of a master craftsman. Hurd is equally at home with rhyme or free verse. The poems are straight-forward yet marked by extreme eloquence. A truly thought-provoking and heart-felt collection, the book ranges from observations of everyday life to the deepest emotions confronting any person attempting to live a full and meaningful life. Lovers of Larkin, Eliot, and W.C. Williams will appreciate this work.
