Gary Glauber’s new poetry collection, Rocky Landscape with Vagrants, has something for everyone: poems like “Sideshow” that hilariously depict a romance that required “an unwavering belief/ in the power of self delusion,” or “Afternoon’s Anachronism” which chronicles the adventures of “the little Id that could,” or the lyrical beauty of “Chanticleer’s Call” where the poet’s students “consider the dominion of trees,/ the names of the world’s many winds.” In one poem Glauber states that “Everything is imperfect, my friend,” everything except, I would contend, this wonderful collection of poetry.Charlie Brice, author of An Accident of Blood
“Like a wind that carries us far beyond/ [the] confines of easy consolation,” Rocky Landscape with Vagrants takes us on an existential journey through a modern life rife with imperfection, uncertainty and frustration that leaves us “touched by love within a war.” Gary Glauber brings to life a rich cast of characters who “shout in a strange language” while “seeking answers and solace,” who “plunge gawkily forward, hoping for more and better days” while never giving up the search for inspiration, epiphany, and “all beautiful things.” These poems encourage us not only to “accept life’s ambiguity / its lack of clarity and neatly packaged answers,” but to “embrace them as a gift.” In Rocky Landscape with Vagrants, we encounter an expertly crafted reflection of our collective struggle for meaning and connection during these troubled and trying times.Claudine Nash, author of The Wild Essential and Parts per Trillion
“Gary Glauber’s use of language is so eloquent and generous so right you might not notice the punch of the payoff until it’s knocked you off your feet. These poems are brave enough to go anywhere it’s about the surprise of the destination as much as the curves in the road.”Jordan Oakes, author of The Yellow Pills Book
From the Editor:
We hope that readers receive In Parentheses as a medium through which the evolution of human thought can be appreciated, nurtured and precipitated. It will present a dynamo of artistic expression, journalism, informal analysis of our daily world, entertainment of ideas considered lofty and criticism of today’s popular culture. The featured content does not follow any specific ideology except for that of intellectual expansion of the masses.
Founded in late 2011, In Parentheses prides itself upon analysis of the current condition of intelligence in the minds of these young people, and building a hypothesis for one looming question: what comes after Post-Modernism?
The idea for this magazine stems from a simple conversation regarding the aforementioned question, which drew out the need to identify our generation’s place in literary history.
