Description

In a dive bar by the river, a stranger begins a new life. Lisa Pasold creates a rich novelistic world of finely-crafted encounters in her new collection of poetry, The Riparian. This is a book of tall tales, dreams, and ghost stories, recounted by a wise drunk teetering on the edge of a muddy dock. Pasold blurs prose and poetry, personal experience and local legends. Fashioned from interviews and overheard conversation, The Riparian steps out of the shadows of the bar and into a realm of the pseudo-real where myth entwines with workaday survival in a sinking world.
