ARC POETRY MAGAZINE book review by Kate Rogers – January, 2022
Book review by Kate Rogers
Big news! The BIPOC Solidarities Issue is finally here! My piece of creative nonfiction “Fabric” is on page 13.
So happy to have my poem, “Six A.M.,” published in The Quarantine Review, alongside my painting, “Winter City.”
TENDER IN THE AGE OF FURY is a powerful collection of poems. In the words of Cathy McKim, blogger at Life with More Cowbell, “Pitts’ work is visceral, political, irreverent, historical, biblical, romantic, vulgar and lyrical.” The book is available at http://www.brandonpitts.com/
I met Brandon at the late Nik Beat’s apartment in Toronto’s Beaches in the spring of 2011. We talked about writing, and I was inspired. And we became fast and close friends.
The long and the short of it is that Brandon chose my 2013 painting, Angel Over the City, for the book cover; it is a match made in heaven!
