Book Launch for John Roche’s Road Ghosts (4-30-11)

The book launch for John Roche‘s Road Ghosts (theenk Books, 2011) will be held at the Bug Jar at 219 Monroe Avenue, Rochester, NY, on Saturday, April 30 from 5 – 8 pm.  The event is free.

David Meltzer says of Roche’s newest collection of poems:

Road GhostsAn unexpected treasure, Road Ghosts is an on-the-ground poetic document of radicalized students coming of age in the late 60s & early 70s. Its clarity of external & internal detail is often startling. Its detached camera eye lucidly documents the process of portent, pretense & Utopian fervor associated with that brief opening in U.S. dissident cultures & the generational clashes inspired by idealism, psychedelics, & quest fever. It’s a profound personal essay on being & becoming.
