Jean LeBlanc's Ancient Songs of Us

I'm pleased to announce the release of Jean LeBlanc's Ancient Songs of Us, a new collection of poetry, as the seventy-third volume in Aqueduct's Conversation Pieces series. It's available now in both print and e-book editions through Aqueduct's website (http://www.aqueductpress.com).

Read a sample from the book.

The poems in Ancient Songs of Us suggest that no song is “ancient,” that every story crosses time and transcends place to remind us what it means to be human. Love, hatred, fury, longing, ennui, sadness—these states of heart and mind in all their nuance hues overflow from these poems.
