Hawaiian Poetry Collection Pushes Beyond the Natural Setting
Eric Paul Shaffer’s Even Further West Released by Unsolicited Press
Portland, OR April 24, 2018: Unsolicited Press releases Even Further West by poet Eric Paul Shaffer. The poems in this collection, which are written from the sunset slopes of Haleakalā on Maui to the crowded boulevards of Honolulu examine a Hawai‘i presenting unexpected moments in a place many call paradise. Even Further West is listed at $16.00 retail and is widely distributed by Ingram.
Stuart Holmes Coleman, author of Eddie Would Go and Fierce Heart, said, “Like a cocoon, Eric Shaffer’s new book of poetry transforms mundane moments and objects in nature into something transcendental, and the lines take flight from the page. In the title poem ‘Even Further West,’ he writes about finding a cardinal feather and a cowrie shell and says, ‘Hold them till your mind changes.’ Many of these poems may change your mind about the things you take for granted, maybe even the way you look at the world.”
Shaffer’s poetry collection is available at all major retailer websites, from the publisher, and as an ebook on Amazon. A book launch and reading tour will follow publication.
