Claremont, CA – February 17, 2019 – Pelekinesis is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Unfortunately, Thanks for Everything, new poetry from T. Anders Carson, available May 16, 2019 worldwide.

Unfortunately, Thanks for Everything is a collection of poems which follow the bicycle paths, travels, and familial challenges that have shaped the poet. Carson’s style of conveying the banal into fortitude, mini vignettes into insightful shortcomings and the brazen writing of one who is not afraid. It is a testimony to the will and strength of daily challenges that he sees when facing the mirror. These poems reflect the risk of exposing not only his autumnal trust in mankind but also the stratospheric darkness that befits those who have been exposed to suicide and orphaned young. His work does not shy away from head on hits. The blows are explosive and barren. He ventures into the mined fields working his magic words and finding that 3:00 am solace that carries until the dawn. He is a firm believer on the sun rising on us all.

Unfortunately, Thanks for Everything by T. Anders Carson will be available through Small Press Distribution, Baker & Taylor, Bertrams, directly from the publisher's website, and in fine local bookstores worldwide.
