Surprise! -- And a "Nose"...

Earlier this year, I reviewed the poetry collection Barney and Gienka, by John Surowiecki, on the berniE-zine blog.

I admit to being a big fan of Surowiecki's poems, as well as his verse-drama, My Nose and Me, which won the inaugural Pegasus Award from The Poetry Foundation.

I recently learned that the poetry collection from which My Nose and Me was adapted -- Further Adventures of My Nose -- is now available for free as an e-chapbook on the web site of its publisher, Ugly Duckling Presse.

I highly encourage you all to go check it out!

Also, while you're at your computer, check out this essay, by Jessica Winter, about the remarkable story behind My Nose and Me.
