[BKARTS] Portrait Sitters

Announcing the latest publication from Propolis Press:
'Portrait Sitters' by Jane Rice

"The light, quick turns of language here really sparkle! 
And the vivid details Rice chooses seem to come out of 
nowhere to land perfectly, precisely, every time. Like
 any excellent portraitist, she exposes her subjects' 
emotional landscapes, but she also goes beyond the 
frame of the individual to evoke an entire time and 
place. Montparnasse between the wars was so full of 
color, and Jane Rice re-enacts it here." 
-- Cole Swensen, author of Goest
