From my upcoming first collection of poetry, “A Confederacy of Joy” coming out April 1, 2014 on Siena Press.
I have been in the thick of things attending as best I can with the release of my first collection of poetry (“A Confederacy of Joy”).
Announcing the release on April 1, 2014 of Siena Press' 2014 Legacy Poetry Series inaugural selection, "A Confederacy of Joy" by Juan-Paolo Perre. The release is scheduled to coincide with the beginning of National Poetry Month and is the highly-anticipated first book by the author.
“One can clearly see the ancestral bloodline: from Pablo Neruda to Hart Crane, Walt Whitman to Philip Levine, Mr. Perre’s poems clamour with a sure and pervasive vision.”
The book will be available for pre-order in paperback and on digital media (Kindle, iBook, ePub, Kobo, PDF, etc) directly on-site and through outlets to be announced shortly.
Plans at SIENA PRESS are under way for the release of my book, “A CONFEDERACY OF JOY”
SIENA PRESS is proud and excited to announce the soon-to-be-released collection of poetry by author, Juan-Paolo Perre entitled “A Confederacy of Joy”. We are honoured to be able to offer these poems, a first collection by Mr. Perre, as the inaugural selection of our LEGACY POETRY SERIES designed to highlight significant contributions to poetry whether it be a first collection or an established writer; the sole criteria being works of substantial promise and enduring quality.
The collection will be available shortly in paperback and on electronic media.
Born in Siena, Italy, Mr. Perre emigrated to London, UK and then to the US (New York City). A noted polymath, he is not only a talented writer but as well an experienced classical concert violinist and pianist as well as a celebrated actor (under the nom d’artiste Adam Alexi-Malle).
""Whitman-esque in its depth of feeling - an auspicious first taste of a promising visionary poet."
"One can clearly see Mr. Perre’s ancestral bloodline: from Neruda to Auden, Whitman to Philip Levine, each poem clamours with pervasive vision."
We are proud to present “A Confederacy of Joy” - please stay tuned!
