In Cleveland with Sarah Marcus

 Words without Borders interviews poet Sarah Marcus about returning to Cleveland:

"Can you describe the mood of Cleveland as you feel/see it?
"Cleveland is like being in the heart of a machine. I spent most of my life trying to leave. Growing up, I would have and did do anything to “get out.” It was like that place in a song; the place you get stuck in. Think Tracy Chapman. Gray and backwards, it was a place where people circled the wagons and resisted change.
"I have been back now since the summer of 2012 after several years “away” in other cities. I have been across the world, and I now see how I was so very wrong about Cleveland...."

Thank you, Geoff! I'm proud of all the books Crisis Chronicles Press has published. But honestly, Sarah's is one of my favorites.

Hers is a book worth reading. Inexpensive as well.
