Plus Yuyutsu Sharma,

General Editor,  Nirala  Series,

will present a small selection from his new book,

Milarepa’s Bones, Helambu,

(Nirala, 2012).

As an added treat the poet’s brother,

David E. Trause

may be providing live music for the celebration.

Dizzy from diving into John J. Trause’s new collection of surprising poems, I urge you to enter!

Let the title swirl and turn you into his wild array of inventions.  Witty, ribald, arch, they tease and entice. They are smart poems. With eclectic topics, he applies a scholar’s encompassing mind and an artistic eye for colorful detail. Trause is not only a prosodic humorist, he is as ever a proficient scholar, and these poems prove his rigorous power. Note his classical and Biblical knowledge, the many languages at his command, and the contemporary scenes he pulls into focus—even on a mocking tour of north NJ towns! These poems take a reader traveling through many lands of rhyme and reason; hurry to see what Trause finds “Outside the Zoo” in the poem of that title, enjoy his complex vocabulary, laugh with his riffs.  Don’t let the abstruse words retain you from the lively banter.  Run and climb. I tried to swim through, but found myself riding the waves. These poems will entertain you, make you study, make you gasp. You may turn round and read again, they will make you a little wiser than before John J. Trause took hold.

Madeline Tiger, author of From the Viewing Stand

After the reading the festivities continue at a local restaurant.

Hope you can join us.  There will also be a reception for John Trause

hosted by the Friends of the Oradell Public Library,

where Trause is the Director,

on Monday, April 30, 2012 at 7 p.m.
