Quotes and Poems by a Nobody, by Sunny Rey
$12.50 softcover (6×9) October, 2013
A collection of 156 poems, some very short, and 90 personal musings, listed as “quotes.”
Raw and unfiltered, often painful, frequently tinged with humor, this unique work reveals the intimate details of a young woman’s life struggle: defeats and victories, setbacks and growth, insights gained, dreams lost, hopes recaptured. A bold debut from a promising new talent.
Bipolar Disorder for Beginners, by Rae Rose
Twenty poems, six essays and 21 drawings make up this personal account that celebrated poet Marge Piercy calls “a brilliant narrative. Many people have written about their experiences with mental disorders, but few are excellent poets able to communicate the arc of what they went through in readable, powerful and emotionally charged poems.”
Filled with heart-wrenching details and, finally, with hope, Bipolar Disorder for Beginners covers a decade of struggle, success, relapse and triumph.
praise for Rae Rose
” If you are curious what it is like to be diagnosed as bi-polar, to experience it, suffer from it and finally come out the other side, Rae Rose has recreated a brilliant narrative in Bipolar Disorder for Beginners. Many people have written about their experiences with mental disorders, but few are excellent poets able to communicate the arc of what they went through in readable, powerful and emotionally charged poems.” ̶ Marge Piercy
“A fine accomplished writer. Bipolar Disorder for Beginners is powerful from beginning to end! The sweet silly delicious cartoony drawings are the perfect punctuation marks, lighter, sweeter, charming, touching.” ̶ Steve Kowit
