from “Satori, poems”here is a short audio that Mindy Halleck recorded at the University Bookstore on August 15th, 2014. Thank you Mindy.
A coming-of-age journey, the collection of poems in Jack Remick’s Satori observe life as days on an Oklahoma peach orchard turn to life in bohemian San Francisco, as elegy and eros intertwine in a search for enlightenment, as boy becomes man becomes poet and the quest for understanding opens up into spiritual awakening. And since the collection is also the story of Remick’s life, what better way is there to release yourself into its relentless energy and breathless rhythms than at a reading and signing with Remick himself?
