Although the title of this book suggests sadness and shadows, it also raises awareness and hope. Here to convey the losses and changes of Tùkhòne area, Lockhart applies Japanese lyric forms with his ancestral moon movements and his lost dialect.
The following pieces are from D.A. Lockhart's upcoming collection, Tukhone, to be published this fall by Black Moss Press. These are haibun that use Detroit's most renowned musicians and musical acts to explore the physical spaces of the city in its contemporary context.
Catharine Leggett's debut novel The Way to Go Home (2019, Urbanfarmhouse Press) is an ambitious one, and it comes on the heels of her shorty story collection, In Progress. While I enjoyed that book, I was anticipating how good a full-length novel by Ms. Leggett might be. At a little over 370 pages, it is a far cry from the short-story length, yet the essence of her mature writing style has remained intact, I am happy to say.
