Heller Levinson and Carol Novack at Tillies of Brooklyn, Tues 10/19 at 7 P.M.

Poetry Grows in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn


The Brownstone Poets Presents:
Heller Levinson and Carol Novack

Tuesday, October 19

Starts at 7p.m. – Sign up at 6:45p.m. – We must be out by 9p.m.

Heller has a new book from the UK, “Excoriate Exhale: Routing Soutine” (Knifes, Folks and Spoons Press).

“What Soutine did with paint, Levinson does with words. He performs an impasto, a thick daubing of vigorous turmoil, so that one feels the ache and acceleration driving the language. One wonders if there is a tornado in this man’s skull, a whirling dervish of “mental musculature,” a “procreant ecstatically perceptual perpetual tingle.” Each sentence is a storm …” — John Olson

Carol is launching her new book “Giraffes in Hiding: The Mythical Memoirs of Carol Novack” (Spuyten Duyvil Press), coming soon to a bookstore near you.


“She has the literary equivalent of perfect pitch, like those musicians who can specify the hertz of birds and burps. Uncanny tympani!”  — Tom Bradley

Copies of their new books will be available at the reading.
