Virgogray Titles Currently Available

 

After a recent inventory, we thought to share the current list of titles “in-stock” with Virgogray Press.  As you may have noted from our “Chapbooks and Collections” page, most of our stock is currently out of print. We do not have a formal electronic way of purchasing our titles online just yet (except through our printer- see below). So if you are interested in having any of these titles as a member of your collection, please e-mail: michael.aaron.casares@gmail.com.

 

Please note some of these titles are extremely limited. The editions as such will be out of print once they are sold out. Our newest titles are available online for purchase from our printer, lulu.com. Visit our online bookstore to view the current catalog. Virgogray Books.

Suzi Kaplan Olmsted: Institutional Wallet

 

Ex-priest ex-drunk
tells of final suicide morning
February frogs croaking
behind St. Annes Rectory
4 o clock in the morning
ready for rehab
a question of faith”

“If I say I believe in the Three Jewels
but take refuge in Norco
in what do I really believe?”

-Emergency Room Redux

Institutional Wallet is a personal and intrigueing collection of poetry by poet Suzi Kaplan Olmsted. Inside the covers of this collection, readers will find verse that is poignant, upfront, bemusing and even gritty. A great read, Suzi confronts the in and outs of the mental ward, reminisces over psych medication and offers a view so seldom seen by others outside the confines of what is viewed as “normal” living. This is a gem of a collection that contains work delivered with utter humility, quiet disbelief, subtle humor and a penchant for the unexpected.
