Book Release and Reading PAR-TAAAAAY! with Burroughs, de Blas, & Borsenik

NightBallet Press is very excited and immensely pleased to announce the imminent publication of The Eater of the Absurd, a brand-new, sixty-page collection of poems by Ohioan John Burroughs.  This long-anticpated thematic book of new work by Burroughs is stunning, thorough, and masterfully executed, and is quintessential John Burroughs-wordplay in its punning and juxtapositioning.

This book is currently in the printing stage and has not yet been listed for sale.  If you wish to pre-order a copy, please contact me at and I will let John Burroughs know.  I'd like all initial sales to go through and to him.  An active PayPal link will appear on this website and on Amazon after the book's release on 12-12-12.  John plans on posting an active PayPal link on his Crisis Chronicles ( website soon.  Don't worry; if you want a copy, we'll make it happen.  Again, pre-orders should be sent via email to  Thank you!

To celebrate the publication of The Eater of the Absurd, NightBallet Press is honored to join with Suzanne DeGaetano and Mac's Backs Books on Coventry to present A Book Release Party with Burroughs, de Blas & Borsenik this coming Wednesday evening in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.  You can view the event page HERE.  The festivities will commence promptly at 7pm, with NBP editor Dianne Borsenik reading from her own new chap of poems, Fortune Cookie, recently published by Kattywompus Press.  Bonné de Blas will read from her (excellent) new NBP chap The Act of Dwelling.  John will present poems from The Eater of the Absurd, some of which he's never read in public before (even this editor hasn't heard him read them aloud).  Open mic will follow the features.  And there will be refreshments!

Please plan on joining us for what promises to be an unforgettable evening of unrestrained grooviness!
