Author and poet Francis DiClemente is pleased to announce the publication of his new collection of poetry from Finishing Line Press, entitled In Pursuit of Infinity.
The chapbook features narrative poems, both autobiographical and fictional, as well as observational works celebrating the ephemeral. Some topics explored include family, faith, relationships, illness, dreaming and baseball.
“Francis DiClemente’s In Pursuit of Infinity is a traipse inside the body and mind of this philosophical poet. . . . If you get one message from this book, it is: live your life, be happy, and don’t sweat the small stuff. I highly recommend this chapbook; it’s a definite page turner.” -Sandy Benitez, poet and editor
“In In Pursuit of Infinity, Francis DiClemente describes ordinary living while showing how the challenge of life is met or avoided in challenging and sometimes confusing situations. He gives a sensitive portrayal of a woman’s pain in Weekend in Albany where he describes uncatchable tears. His sensitivity to the human condition shows throughout this chapbook.” - Linda Griggs, host, Palace Poetry Group and author of the chapbook Love Poems of the Universe
“Francis DiClemente’s chapbook In Pursuit of Infinity has a dream sense that comes from “white space noise in an empty room.” . . . In DiClemente’s world, we might be late-bloomers in minor league full of has-beens and never-were. This is an unresolved world.” - Martin Willitts Jr., author of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers for Cezanne
