Tartan whets my appetite for I.V. Lounge Nights:
For literary fans that are not lucky enough to venture into the city to be entertained by the spectrum of talented authors and poets spotlighted in the I.V. Lounge Reading Series, the collection of poems and short fiction in I.V. Lounge Nights, published by Tightrope Books, is the next best thing. This tidy paperback edition printed on textured paper stock compiles the thought-provoking, intelligent, and sometimes even salacious works of twenty-nine authors. Masterfully, they take us on a compelling journey into darkness and light, over bridges and around unforeseen corners, through country meadows and down dreary urban alleys, and far beyond. Woven into each trip is an entertaining, titillating, and occasionally hair-raising glimpse into the provocatively complex, often tormented mind of an introspective stranger.
Curl up in a quiet room under dimmed lights with an icy cocktail nearby and be transcended by I.V. Lounge Nights. This title offers something for every taste. Highly recommended.
