Written in unsparing, haunting detail, Claudia Serea’s unforgettable A Dirt Road Hangs From the Sky brings to life the horrors of the brutal communist repression in her native Romania in the second part of the 20th century – the prisons, the torture, the barbarous inhumanity— preserving in memory a time that should never be forgotten. She writes: “Tell me, grandma, everything you know / so I can be your mouth when you are gone.” The grief is lasting; memory must serve as justice.

— Charles Rammelkamp, editor of The Potomac Review, author of Fusen Bakudan

Claudia Serea's "A Dirt Road Hangs from the Sky" coming soon.

by Darren C. Demaree
93 pages, ISBN 978-1-926716-16-9

Our bodies, our individual and collective bodies, and the seperate bodies that together combine to make
our systems, ecological, biological, psychological and technological—these are the bodies that we refer to,
these are the bodies that Darren C. Demaree has dance for us on the page; nuanced or naked, dissected,
dessecrated and decorated; these are the bodies that rise and swell to the touch of the poet’s pen.


“Darren is a dangerous dreamer, concocting love poems to his home state, and pastorals to his true love. But there’s always something more beneath the surface: sex and violence, villainy, mutilation, uneasy redemption and troubled ecstasy. These poems are pins pressed deep in the disfigured heart of America. They work a dark magicon the reader — they’re unsettling in necessary ways.”   — Christopher Michel

"As you read through the poems of Darren C. Demaree, his prescient voice seems to grow in volume, each story clambering for more attention than the last. Yet, it isn't that he is screaming from atop the mountain, but that everybody around has infinitely hushed to hear this whispering storyteller who speaks of little moments, glorious moments, moments "where the smooth sheet / of leaves & salt / will sugar us / into the un-lonely air" if each of us, is his guiding star, his sky, his Emily."          - Mr. & Mrs. Garbanzo (Garbanzo Literary Journal)



Darren C. Demaree's poems have appeared in numerous magazines/journals, including the South Carolina Review, Meridian, The Louisville Review, Cottonwood, The Tribeca Poetry Review, and Whiskey Island. He is the recipient of two Pushcart Prize nominations. He currently lives and writes in Columbus, Ohio with his wife and children.
