Our customer reviews

Sojourner gathers short stories, poems, experiments, prose poems, as well as a CD's worth of recorded performances (http://soundcloud.com/lee-foust/sets/sojourner-previously-entitled/), from the author's 25 years spent traveling, sojourning, and living as an itinerant student in various US and European cities. Each of the multiform texts of Sojourner seek to engage the mystery of our experience of place, our sense of belonging, and our desire to escape into unknown territories. Of the many voices included in the collection, we hear from teenagers in obscure California suburbs, San Francisco apartment hunters and soon-to-be-unfaithful boyfriends, European backpackers, junkies, and prostitutes, South American refugees, mourners in Texas, revolutionaries in Brooklyn, dreaming Manhattan barflies, Arctic lovers, victims of Vesuvian politics and Partenopean trash bags, a re-figuration of Poe's amontillado-tippling Fortunato, Florentine ghosts, Tuscan expatriates lost in summertime reveries, and the Mad Hatnik in Poznan, Poland, along with his evil doppelganger and invisible companion, Alhambra Akhmatova.show more
