Patti Smith, who contributed several photographs to the book to illustrate the poems of her life-long friend and mentor, will be on hand to celebrate the release, along with Lenny Kaye from her band.Advance Praise for Body of Water“...This book is a romantic, surreal, lyrical Voyage. It twists and turns with the playful tide of poetic vision, enhanced by the delicate measures of Patti Smith’s photography. Kudos all around.” --Anne Waldman“Reading Janet Hamill now, as I have over the last thirty years, I’m amazed again at the particulars of the world her poetry makes – a night world, as I read it, peopled with bright creatures & splashes of color, beautiful & terrifying by turns....With this & much more, she has become indispensable.” --Jerome RothenbergWith its unbridled surrealistic, hypnotic imagery, Janet Hamill’s alchemy of language gives us back communion with our souls. With a magician’s grace she reminds us of the enchantment of our being. Hers is a music both modern and magik. --Maureen Owen“...Hamill’s mastery of form and feeling comes together to create a poem that delicately examines celebrity, gallantry, silence, talent, and beauty. Only a poet could do that. Or maybe only Janet Hamill.” --Patricia Spears JonesBowery Books gratefully acknowledges that this publication is made possible with public funds from The New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
