New Book! Gilded Snow by David Chorlton

Feline creativity at its most opportunistic. Raissa visited an unattended keyboard and left a rare legacy of work on the computer screen, just begging for interpretation.
"The mysterious Raissa Parnok , a follower of Gertrude Stein, appears in this avatar as a poet of the most extraordinary typography, as though typing on little cats' feet. David Chorlton's grave commentary only deepens the mystery of her existence and work." - David Lincoln Fisher
David Chorlton came to Phoenix from Europe in 1978 with his wife Roberta, an Arizona native. He quickly became comfortable with the climate while adjusting to the New World took longer. Writing and reading poetry have helped in that respect, as has exposure to the American small presses. He and Roberta have shared their living space with many cats over the years, each one distinguished in his or her own way while Raissa stands out for her cultural leanings.
