EXTRACTS FROM FRIENDS & FAMILY
Greenboathouse Press, 2014
Designed and printed by Jason Dewinetz at Greenboathouse Press, Vernon, British Columbia, Canada.
Published in an edition of 45 copies.
It may only be a small booklet, but Friends & Family is a most worthy addition to my library. It’s a typically handsome offering from the Greenboathouse Press, with Jason Dewinetz’s fine design skills and his use of bespoke contemporary colours and highest quality materials. However, as visually attractive as this item is, it’s the literary content that makes it particularly special.
Dewinetz’s writing, presented here in the form of six short prose-poems, is superb. His ability in these pieces to cover wide ground with just a handful of well-chosen words is remarkable. Frequently raw and unflinchingly personal, these intricately constructed snapshots from Dewinetz contain moments of creative writing at its very best.
