Perhaps it is best to picture this book as a gallery space, for in Notes for the Novice Ventriloquist, Gerry LaFemina curates an exhibit of the curious and quirky. Surrealist art, big foot, magic shows, mythological creatures, love in all its manifestations hang side by side on these pages. Each prose poem is a painted canvas in which the real and what-may-be-real are framed together. Sometimes laugh-till-you-cry funny, sometimes heartbreaking, always fantastic in the truest sense, these modern fables posit the endless possibilities of both the imagination and the ordinary world.
Praise for “Notes for the Novice Ventriloquist”
What joy. What uncompromised and uncomplicated pleasure without the pretense of the huzzah,” Lafemina says
