Florence Writers: reading of Scherzando con le mie bestie preferite by Baret Magarian
January 24 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Scherzando con le mie bestie preferite is an intense meditation on love, relationships, art, and nostalgia. Some poems are intimate and tender, some furious and sarcastic. Language is moulded, broken; the streetwise and the lofty, the metaphysical and the squalid are fused. The book might best be described as a labyrinth of mental landscapes.
The poems were translated into Italian by Andrea Sirotti, Martha Canfield, Sylvia Zanotto and Andrea Spadola; and the book comes with a preface by Andrea Sirotti and an afterword by Marco Incardona. The reading will take place in both English and Italian.
Baret will also talk about his book of short fiction coming out in May with Salt Publishing.
