ČERVENÁ BARVA PRESS NEWSLETTER
Gloria Mindock, Editor Issue No. 58 September, 2010
Welcome to the September, 2010 Newsletter!
I am writing this on September 2nd while waiting to see how close Hurricane Earl lands in regards to Boston.
So far, it looks like it will hit the Cape and the islands.
I imagine the category of the storm will be way down.
I have been extremely busy with the press and feel like a hurricane myself!
Guess I am getting pretty silly here. Bill has been very busy with the press also.
Two hurricanes can get so much done!
I have two interns, Jennifer LeBlanc and Jason Wright, helping me with the press.
They are such a huge help and very good at what they do. I am so thankful for their help.
They are both such a joy to work with. It has been really nice.
What May Have Been: Letters of Jackson Pollock and Dori G
by Gary Percesepe and Susan Tepper
What May Have Been is a novel in letters exchanged between the artist Jackson Pollock and his fictional lover,
a young woman called Dori G.
Gary Percesepe and Susan Tepper have created a luminous love story that takes place sometime during the late 1940's,
in that sandy wonderland at the eastern tip of Long Island known as The Hamptons.
Advance Praise for What May Have Been
"In this extraordinary novel, Pollock tells his lover that things like paint and wives are very small in the scheme of things.
Gary Percesepe and Susan Tepper show how the great scheme of things is, in fact, in literary art, captured in paint and wives and
a Montauk surf and a silky scarf and narrow hips and a cold water flat and a used Ford. Brilliantly conceived, brilliantly executed,
this is a stunning book about art and about life."
—Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of
A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

Paul Celan and the Messiah's Broken Levered Tongue: An Exponential Dyad
by Daniel Y. Harris and Adam Shechter
As Ron Sukenick so aptly put it in his last book "Mosaic Man," Jews are both proto and posthuman. Adam Shechter and Daniel Y. Harris
are possessed of that molten globe of fiery perdition that draws the brighter children of the tribe to the flame. Add poetry and oy!
What can I say? Shechter and Harris have made another journey to the hellchamber of Jewish mystery/creation/death and came out in company,
a big company that includes a lot of fried geniuses, but most of all they came out, and it's good to see them.
—Andrei Codrescu (www.codrescu.com), is the author of The Posthuman Dada Guide: Tzara and Lenin Play Chess
(Princeton University Press) and edits Exquisite Corpse at (www. corpse.org).
