Advance Praise for A Dream Between Two Rivers
"A Dream Between Two Rivers: Stories of Liminality is a precious gem all its own. Folk tales, experimental literature, speculative fiction, and mythology whether invented or neoclassical, all play together here gorgeously. The ghosts of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jose Donoso, Leonora Carrington, and Octavia Butler haunt this potent collection by an author of boundless imaginative gifts. Imagine a poet and painter in another dimension possessed by fever dreams and trying to tell our stories, and that will bring you only somewhere close to the magic of KL Pereira."
—Porochista Khakpour, author of the novels Sons & Other Flammable Objects and The Last Illusion and the memoir Sick

by Rick Berlin
(Cutlass Press, November 2016)
Paperback Original, 9780692802489
The Paragraphs is a memoir of a life in music, made up of vignettes penned as exercises in songwriting by Boston music icon Rick Berlin.
Created from fragments used to write songs, this memoir recalls a life of music, a relationship with the animal world, and a two-day meth-fueled road trip. Berlin, a queer Boston music legend formerly the front-man of Orchestra Luna, Berlin Airlift, Rick Berlin: The Movie, and The Shelley Winters Project, and currently of The Nickel & Dime Band, is known for his zany lyrics and unflinching wit. Exploring boyhood, family relationships, and the dynamic social workings of Boston through the decades, Rick Berlin’s work is “uncategorizable...part punk, part musical theater, part sentimental sap, part wordplay master. Gold” (Amanda Palmer).
“Rick Berlin’s writing is as raw, luminous, open-hearted, profane, musical, magical as the man himself. Put on your seat belts.” —Beth Harrington (documentary filmmaker, The Winding Stream, member of The Modern Lovers)
“I love reading Berlin’s words. All the pretty young boys and girls got nothing on Rick. He can light up the darkest places.” —Carmelita (Bay State Rock, WAAF)
