Earlier this week, Brian Lindenmuth alerted me that David Rachels was offering five review copies of of his self-published Verse Noir. Having considered some of David's work for The Lineup, I was eager to see more of it in book form.
Verse Noir is a 72-page, little black book of terse philosophy and proverbs. If you like devilish quips, this is for you. My favorite poem, "Dad", details a father's object lesson on his son's twelve birthday.
