Disappointed Psalms

Folks, many of you have kindly asked about getting a copy of my new little book, Disappointed Psalms; here's a 25% discount for you:
A Meritage Press Announcement
Poems by Brian Clements
ISBN-13: 978-0-9794119-4-6
ISBN-10: 0-9794119-4-7

Meritage Press is delighted to announce the release of Disappointed Psalms by Brian Clements. This poetry collection is published as the recipient of the Colombian Poetry Gift sponsored by Meritage Press.

After years of working exclusively in the prose poem, Brian Clements shifts in Disappointed Psalms to short bursts, in turns raw and lyrical, that turn the languages of war and religion, so frequently aligned, against themselves. Combining short phrases from The Book of Psalms and catch phrases from the post-9/11 cultural reservoir with Clements's own lamentations on lost faith, these short poems and the litany that closes the book, like all the best political poems, attempt to wrest the ability to make meaning from the hands of spin doctors, liars, dissemblers, and would-be builders of empire.

To celebrate the release of Disappointed Psalms, Meritage Press is pleased to offer a special disounted pre-release arrangement good through June 30, 2008. You may order the book for $12.00 (a 25% discount from the book's $16 retail price) plus free shipping/handling for orders throughout the United States.
(For non-U.S. orders, please email us first at MeritagePress@aol.com.)
