Beth Wood has long been loved as a lyricist and folk musician. She is a powerful songwriter with an equally powerful voice, who has won about every prize and award one can win in the singer-songwriter realm. Now she brings the magic of her lyricism to poetry. And not everyone can make that transition. But she has most certainly done it. Beth has the gift of storytelling, and she has it to the point that it doesn't matter what form or genre she employs. Kazoo Symphonies, with chapters on nature, life, love, and growing up, is, simply put, great storytelling. And it's worth every page.
God in His Slippers is the poetry debut of acclaimed singer-songwriter Rod Picott. In a vivid collection that ranges from the lurid to the exquisite, Picott deftly handles a wide range of territory. Much like his songs, Rod Picott’s poems are tender, truthful, and darkly humorous. Always aiming for the hardwood of truth beneath the shag carpet of assumption, God in His Slippers is a wander through the mind of a gifted writer who clearly loves lining up boney words into a resonant whole.
