Inspiring references and illusions to both Dante and Plato, Brendan Connell’s The Rimini-Ferrara Line is a work that asks pointed questions about the truths of vibrant beauty and the strange experiences of investigational prose. In this graceful and sympathetic book, the author brings a musician’s ear and the strategic force of a Napoleon to the infinitely amusing world of Italian trains.
This is an unusual and experimental chapbook constructed with a coloured interior.
