How the Quiet Breathes

Flynn’s prose at every turn is crisp and evocative; he has a gift for description of cities, landscapes and characters—the latter seem so real one could almost touch them. John Michael Flynn’s language dazzles to a very real end. The range of tonesand locales he uses is impressive but more impressive is the feeling invested in what almost inevitably slips through time’s fingers. This is a wonderfully vivid collection that crackles with energy and insight! Purchase How Quiet Breathes on Amazon.

Restless Vanishings

John’s newest collection of poems, Restless Vanishings, is available now from Leaf Garden Press: http://goo.gl/TTrC0h. Poet Baron Wormser has written of this collection that the “language dazzles to a very real end; the exploration and delineation of the free-floating breakdown known as ‘America.’ The range of tones and locales he uses is impressive but more impressive is the feeling invested in what almost inevitably slips through time’s fingers. Anyone wondering where the Whitmanesque impulse has gone need look no further than this encompassing book.”
