PRLog - Jan. 10, 2012 - TORONTO -- Join author BRANDON PITTS for a talk and the signing of his book PRESSURE TO SING, a collection of poems written with that undone spirituality you can only get from an irreverent wizard... or a genuinely enlightened hitchhiker.
"Brandon Pitts does what few poets nowadays have either the will or courage to do: writing about a cosmos whose luminosity is steadily losing its sparkle. He reinvents the ceiling that we call the heavens and then brings it down to earth for a closer look. And by bringing down the fire, he makes us see the very stars that are an integral part of our skies in a wholly new and reinvigorated way & thus he 'sings our body electric' for us." —NIK BEAT. HOWL host (CIUT 89.5 FM), Tyranny of Love
"Theses are poet’s pictures taken through a very clear lens, sharp and true." —THOMAS SCOTT. User's Guide To A Blank Wall, How Things Got Like This
Prolific author, lyricist and poet, BRANDON PITTS infuses his creations with the experience of a life lived on the edge. From Seattle to Cambodia and Los Angeles, his work penetrates the darker side of spirituality, balancing the sublime with the grotesque. In 2011, he was selected for inclusion in the prestigious Diaspora Dialogues as an Emerging Voice and is his first novel Puzzle of Murders was just launched in September this year.
