Kelly Cherry, on Cinéma Vérité (A-Minor Press) …

Cherry“I fell in love with this book on the first page. Sam Rasnake’s poems – often metrical, or visually arrayed like a piece of art – are beautifully crafted. In them, we relive great films we have seen, learn how to pitch to a producer, encounter a script in development, and are shown close-up portraits of the directors. Delightful, fresh, full of superbly smart, insightful observations about film’s ability to model the twinned Janus-faces of comedy and tragedy. Roger Ebert would give Cinéma Vérité four stars. So do I.”
– Kelly Cherry, winner of the Hanes Poetry Prize, a Pushcart, and three PEN/Syndicated Fiction awards, and author of The Life and Death of Poetry: Poems
