What could be a better Valentine’s Week treat than a love (maybe?) story by John Cusick? “700 Years in Heaven” comes complete with everything you love about his writing: snappy dialogue, dissolution, and a distinctly though not completely sci-fi trip. Are we mean “trip” on many levels. Surely you remember his “Abandon Changes; A Girl Parts Story,” which he shared with us in 2011, and if you haven’t read his novel “Girl Parts,” we recommend you do so right now! His next book, “Cherry Money Baby” is due out later this year.
As if that weren’t enough, we’ll also have some poetry we love by YARN alum Erik DeLapp–no one is quite like Erik in bringing you modern romantic angst. Albus Dumbledore and cookie dough ice cream in one poem with “science” in the title? I mean…. come on! You know you can’t wait. To whet your appetite, revisit the marvelously digital-age poems we pubbed almost two years ago.
