A smart, unusual collection of poetry with honed, pleasant surprises.
In this duet the voices of brother and sister alternate to form a book as unique as its music as in its silences. Honest and mature, Pearls Beneath The Rind lifts and anchors, shimmies and sways. It’s a joy to read.
–Michaela Carter, poet and author of Further Out Than You Thought (available summer 2014, Harper Collins).
Reading these poems was like listening in on a conversation between Richard and Carole after a long separation.... The sudden and quick bits of humor juxtaposed with longing is present in both their poems. The balance of observations of what is with what could have been and might be is poignant and so human.
–Carol Christy White, author of Rain—The Private Poems of Li Qingzhao and President of the Arizona State Poetry Society.The book is available from Dog Ear Publishing, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, other book sellers, and from Richard Seldin directly: email@example.com
