Books and Chapbooks from Goldfish Press on Sale

"Reading the poems of Betty Irene Priebe is like hearing voices from porches as you walk the neighborhood on a warm summer night - engaging, perceptive and sometimes even a little disconcerting, but always making you want to stop for more."

This is one of the crown jewels of Goldfish Press creations. This is a land I love as well as Washingtonton State where I grew up, where my love of labor went into the recording of one of its long-time resident's deeply moving and often cosmic reflections of a land of kettle moraines, arbor arches, translucent woods, clusters of lakes, and barns and cornfields, and of the people who settled it and of the place that produces America's best gingseng, which the Chinese calls the "human heart."
Betty Irene Priebe comes from a rich heritage. She sings of family, neighborhors, and neighborhood. She sings of cows and barns, tree stumps, lakes and minnows, land and water that recreates what is lost, the honesty of its inhabitants, and the neighborly warmth, as well as the local color and artistic yearning of the middle of America, where Whitman's verse pulsed here from East to West, and where the rich loam stopped the roamers. It is a place one calls home.

My regret is that I only printed 500 copies of this exquisite book and so there are only a few left that I am reluctantly to let go.

Just give me what I invested in it ($11 per book though the marked price is only $10) and $3.00 for postage and you shall own a truly remarkable book published by a world-class poet, yours truly, in all modesty.
