I am copying and pasting the press release below. But basically Brave Men Press is a new independent publisher that has released a lot of “coinsides” and is now releasing their first book: No Theater by Chris Tonelli.
BRAVE MEN PRESS is excited to announce the release of our first book, NO THEATER by Chris Tonelli.
Considering the responsibilities of the social world with a disconnected eye, NO THEATER is a collection of meticulously crafted poems that perform outside of time, but remain intuitively familiar and profound. Chris Tonelli reveals the artificialities of the everyday self with a language stalked by loss yet driven by possibility. Here, these poems come prepared in an armature of many masks and invested with an insight sure to move around the mental furniture of any reader.
Chris Tonelli co-curates The So and So Series and is the author of four chapbooks, most recently For People Who Like Gravity and Other People (Rope-A-Dope Press, forthcoming). He teaches at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, where he lives with his wife Allison.
