BRUCE DEITRICK PRICE:

I've been a writer and a painter throughout my career. Yes, a Gemini. I've published eight books and had a half-dozen art shows. I was writing poetry all along. These days, a lot of energy goes into writing about education (on Improve-Education.org and other places).

Lit4u.com, this site, presents a variety of work that I get a kick out of. There are only a few items in each category, so click around. (Some of this material has been published here and there. Some is available. Contact me at Word-Wise, 757-455-5020.)

 

Covers of my four new e-books are shown on homepage. Please take a look.

 

 

---------------------------------

 

SIGNED BOOKS AVAILABLE. First editions, mint. Hardcover. American Dreams, 1984, experimental novel that is nonetheless readable and intellectually interesting. $40. ("Price has written a funny, stylistically innovative novel that includes everything a popular novel should have: romance, sex, adultery, crime, religion, sickness, death and even Texas." --Publishers Weekly.)  

 

AMERICAN DREAMS UPDATE 2015: Recently discovered list of rave reviews from almost 30 years ago prompted me to put a review on Amazon  and to loudly proclaim that American Dreams is the most successful experimental novel in American literature! (Take that, Naked Lunch.) At any rate, this is a reasonable proposition and I hope that professors and critics will debate the issue. If you have an interest in things experimental, please look at this review. You'll enjoy the whole discussion. LATEST: Permanent Press issued this novel as e-book now available on Amazon.

 

 

Too Easy. 1994, somewhat scandalous erotic thriller about a romantic triangle. $40. ("The unwed mother of all page-turners." Kinky Friedman). Includes UPS. Pay by Paypal. Signed: Bruce D. Price (unless otherwise requested)

 

LATEST NEWS, Simon & Schuster reissued Too Easy as an e-book. You can order at S&S or on Kindle. (For more info about this novel, see bottom of homepage.)

--MY THEME SONG--

 

 

 

 

ARS POETICA

oh to uncage words
as startling as birds
naked and silken
full of song and shriek
flung into the envious air
on a wonder of wings
to spin and soar and rise
dazzling our days
with surprise
