Middle Island Press Release: Sketchbook by Robert Coné

26 May

Cone - Cover ScanMiddle Island Press welcomes seasoned author and poet Robert Coné to our growing experience. His newly released Sketchbook (ISBN 978-1-4675-7484-6) is rife with melody: “Black is the knight who owns these black woods / His sharp lance upright in his socket / Sought he the friar who swiped the goods- / The monk who took hold of his pocket”; imagery: “Two black eyes / staring / from among the purple Joe Pyes / were of a fox snake / camouflaged / by the clay baked / in the hot sun”; and wise country experiences throughout.

Coné’s words about his collection:

“It has been said that the expanse of the landscape determines what a man writes. Sketchbook is a sampling of twenty-one anecdotal observations and short pieces written from the author’s unique Midwestern perspective.”

Read “Nantucket Song” at the Middle Island Press website.
