Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


UNSTEADY, Monique Ferrell's first full-length collection of poetry and dramatic monologues, is an examination of a life in progress. The verse in this collection delves deeply into such themes as race, class, violence, gentrification, sexuality, celebrity, love, and politics. It is designed to explore the life issues of which we are all so certain, but hopes to express that uncertainty-being unsteady-is normal and can lend itself to deep reflection and creativity. In its pages, you will find poems about infamous cultural figures like Billie Holiday, Mike Tyson, and Tennessee Williams. Additionally, the reader will find poems about a mother who made a difficult and irrevocable decision during Hurricane Katrina, and about the late Lashaundra Armstrong-a woman who drove herself and her five children into the Hudson River during the winter of 2011. It is a visceral examination of things that matter to the writer, and in the end, after your own examination, things that will matter to you as well.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
