Paraph of Bone & Other Kinds of Blue: Poems
Paperback - English

Winner of the APR/Honickman First Book.

In her introduction Adrienne Rich describes Paraph of Bone & Other Kinds of Blue, as a fully conceived book, speaking as a whole from the first lines to the last... Mr. Pavlic has listened closely to our most profound American art, the blues and jazz, and that music has not only helped him achieve poetic form but allowed him to explore a mesh of experience extraneous to literary theories... This is intimate and soulful work, breathing, brushing, and tonguing its instrument.

In response to Charlie Parker's theory of art, If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn, Ed Pavlic breathes exuberant life into his poetry through rigorous attention to overlapping facets of language--visual, tonal, rhythmic.

from Confessions of a Piano Roll Lover:

& this new player,
he's just a boy. Well
drilled,
won't allow his thumb
to drag behind his
index
finger. Mistakes won't leave
exit wounds, or
bloom
in his lapel until
they're his alone. Grown.
With a pocket
Full of rock salt
in his gait, & jalape o
beard.
