Forest Primeval by Vievee Francis The Audiobook

Talking Book is excited to announce the release of FOREST PRIMEVAL by Vievee Francis, read by the author herself.

‘A Song On The Ridge’ read by Vievee Francis (Excerpt from the new audiobook)

Vievee Francis’s poems engage many of the same concerns as her poetic predecessors—faith in a secular age, the city and nature, aging, and beauty. Words certainly do not fail as Francis sets off into the wild world promised in the title. The wild here is not chaotic but rather free and finely attuned to its surroundings. The reader who joins her will emerge sensitized and changed by the enduring power of her work.

 

PRAISE FOR FOREST PRIMEVAL

“Vievee Francis is a maker of magnificent, ferociously intelligent, deeply moving poems, but to me her poems are not just poems and this amazing book isn’t just a book. Forest Primeval is a sacred conversation with the reader, wrestling with the distressing angel for all of us, and demanding a blessing.”    –Patrick Donnelly
