I used to be a great lover of poetry in my native language, French. My most favorite poet is actually Spanish speaking, Pablo Neruda. The rhythm of his lines in Spanish is remarkable.
But, apart from a few examples, poetry has always been a challenge for me in English. So when the author contacted me, I thought I might try Cocktails With a Dead Man.

Sometimes, you enter so many giveaways, you don’t remember. Or do you keep track?
I’d like to know your practice on that.
Anyway, I was happily surprised when I got a package form St. Martin’s Press, with an ARC I had won.
I know nothing about the book, and will dive into it blindly, as I have already thoroughly enjoyed two books by Wendy Walker: All is Not Forgotten and Emma in the Night.
Cocktails With a Dead Man:

A collection of 74 poems. I have not read poetry for a while, and the author sounds interesting, so I accepted his ebook for review
