ABR Gets Physical

When I think of the thousands upon thousands of books that come out each year, I feel extremely fortunate that my novel FREIGHT got the bidness at the venerable American Book Review. Thanks go out to ABR & the universe. I now have physical copies in my possession.

Over at OWC I take a look at Jensen Beach's debut collection from Dark Sky Books. Read my review HERE. Also, thanks to my friend Johnboy for snapping this picture of my chappy chapbook on the beach. It's a beachy kind of weekend, ya feel me?

FREIGHT: An American Book Reviewed

"Mel Bosworth's Freight is in some ways a throwback, a sweet-souled, old-fashioned book wearing the armor (or maybe the Nehru jacket) of postmodernism. Bearing a dedication that the reader at first presumes must be dripping with irony, "For everyone and everything, ever," it proceeds to make that cynical reader half-believe—but half is too weak a fraction; I'm inclined to say 94.7% believe—not only in the sincerity of such a sentiment, but even in its wisdom."

Michael Griffith, author of  Bibliophilia & Trophy. Read his full review in the March/April 2012 edition of American Book Review.
