The Novel
by James Reiss
Released January 1, 2015 

Whatever happened to Poetry? I’m not talking about that ancient text by Shakespeare that has to be decoded with a latin dictionary, but plain spoken rhythmic lyrics. We all lead pretty busy lives and often lose time to read. This book is great because it is something you can read while you are on the subway, waiting in line for lunch, or pretending to read your work emails. ;) The Novel is said to an underground breakthrough of poetry that will get your toes tapping and your feet moving- you’ll be pleased to have picked up.

Keep reading and stay Ugly!
