Of Tire & Anonymity by Che Elias

Posted in New Releases with tags , , on May 28, 2015 by 6GPress

Aaand Che has a new book…

West Virginia poet (long resident of Pittsburgh) Che Elias’s new poetry collection is out, and it is an arresting offering. Titled Of Tire & Anonymity and published by Six Gallery Press, it is his first in a number of years. Anyone who has read Elias’s work is aware that it is idiosyncratic and visionary and unlike anything anyone else has ever done.
