Contiguous States the new book of poetry by Richard Levine, is now available for pre-order from Finishing Line Press.

If one doesn’t find oneself tearing up at least once while reading Richard Levine’s Contiguous States, it seems—to me, at least—that one is lacking in humanity. There are poems of immense sadness and poems of immense beauty, poems that expose the soul of man for all to see. I find myself going back to reread poem after poem here—not because I need to be reminded of sadness or beauty, but because that which is deeply human must be held close, cherished.

 –Matthew J. Spireng, Author of What Focus Is and Out of Body
