Sunshine Liar - by Ryan Swofford (CC#51)

Sunshine Liar is a 24-page, 8.5 x 11" chapbook featuring 14 poems by one of the most talented young writers in America, Ryan Swofford. (Hey, I'm 47, so he's young to me!). I could give you a long review of all the great things about these poems that stirred me to eagerly publish them, but I'd prefer you just read the chapbook.  It's a steal at only 5 bucks and I guarantee you'll like it or I will give you your money back.  Nothing to lose!  So what are you waiting for?

"Just read the book [Ryan Swofford] did with John Burroughs' Crisis Chronicles. Great stuff. Took me back to the jazzy Kerouacian verse days!"
John Grochalski, author of The Librarian and Glass City.
