Poet Talk with Lisa Tomey

Writer's Talk with Warren Ashworth & Susan Kander with Special Guest Michael Poage Prolific Pulse Poetry Podcast

We have shifted gears at the PPPP and let a couple of phenomenal writers into the mix. After all, there is one poem in this book "We the House." About the book: Mrs. Peale has been dead for 38 years and Ambleside is a new Italianate house on the Kansas prairie when her existential yelp sparks the beginning of an unforgettable relationship. We, the House begins in 1878 in a frontier town on the Kansas prairie where a battered Civil War Union veteran builds his new wife her dream house, an Italianate glory she names Ambleside. Soon an early American portrait of Mrs. Simon Peale arrives from Hartford, Connecticut to dignify the dining room wall. When the portrait’s existential yelp causes house and painting to discover each other, Ambleside is a perfect ‘tabula rasa,’ almost literally born yesterday, and Mrs. Peale a devastated young widow, a starchy professor of Latin, who has been dead since 1841. Together, through the lives and generations of ‘their’ family, this disarming odd couple witness and try to comprehend the panorama of American social history–from women’s suffrage, three wars, the ice box, photography, and the invention of the twoby-four, to indoor plumbing and electrification, the Dust Bowl, the Depression, and Dachau, foxglove, the Love That Dare Not Speak its Name, the song of the catbird, and Little Women. Over the decades, a most unusual love develops between them and quietly deepens, until one day in 2010 an art historian from New York happens to see the portrait of Mrs. Peale and, abruptly, everything changes.
