LOOKING LOVELY (I THINK) IN ROMANIAN!
I appreciate this unique "Book Day" defined as when one receives Author Copies. Here I am in Romanian(!) with my new book
I FORGOT ARS POETICA / AM UITAT ARTA POETICA
as translated by Roxana Doncu, Teodor Panait, Elena Ţăpean, Gabriela Apetrei, and Iulia Andreea Anghel from university of Bucharest. THANK YOU!
Let’s see: there are three Romanian speakers at my doctor’s office. Critic T.C. Marshall’s son speaks Romanian due to Peace Corps background. And that’s it for my Romanian marketing--unless you know someone! Fortunately, the English remains in the book and, with these 25 poems, serve as a de facto “Selected-as-chosen-when-my-back-is-up-against-the wall”. So if that interests the rest of you, it just became available on Amazon! The retail price there is $19.00 but if you let me know by email (Galateaten at aol dot com), you can have one of my Author Copies for $15, free domestic shipping and signed.
Those Romanian stamps are lovely ...
Do pass the word on to your Romanian-speaking or Romanian friends!!
