I’m delighted to let you know that Hitching To Nirvana, a novel of midlife and adolescence (Cycladic Press) is now available online and also from bookstores. Poet Maria Fama describes Hitching… as ” ‘experimental’ in the best sense of the word. The writing takes chances that lead to a greater understanding of class, gender, mythology, love, friendship, and family.”
The Philadelphia Book Launch reading will be held at Giovanni’s Room on November 12th (a Friday) from 5:30 to 7:00, 12th and Pine Streets, in Philadelphia. I will be reading with poet and prose writer extraordinaire Jim Cory. Jim, the founder of Insight To Riot Press, was my first publisher and also wrote the introduction to Hitching…
You can read Jim’s new work (an excerpt from his new 777 poem) in this edition of amusejanetmason.com
Hitching To Nirvana is my first book in ten years and I am very happy to be releasing the story and sharing it with those who may find it meaningful.
I hope to see some of you at the reading and if you know anyone who may be interested, please feel free to pass the word along.
