This book is a collection of poetry by Igor Brezhnev published by Liquid Gravity Publishing in August of 2018 after a successful Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign. It contains 100 poems written between 2010 and 2018. The book consists of two parts. First part contains the illustrated poem ‘america is…’ which highlights the good, the bad and the ugly of today’s American experience and sets the background for the second part, titled ‘other love stories’, a gathering of poems that speak of subjects ranging from grief to romantic love to playful examination of today’s customs and mores.
You can find studio recordings of some of the poems from this book on Igor’s first poetry album Good Days & Bad Days on igorbrezhnev.bandcamp.com
Igor Brezhnev is a poet, an author, an artist, an art director and a graphic designer, dubbed idea shaman by his clients. He is roaming the West Coast thinking up new art, books and helping shape creative projects. He has been calling Portland, Oregon his home for the past five years, with occasional long visits to Phoenix, Arizona, which has been his home for over twenty years.
Igor has authored three books so far: the book of possibilities (2012), dearest void (2016) and america is a dry cookie and other love stories (2018). Since publication of his last book Igor has also taken to reading his stories from stages and other raised platforms to groups of people, sometimes even reciting from memory. Some of those people claim to like the readings.
He has first hand experience with confronting depression, homelessness, poverty and xenophobia, as well as more common ailments like heartbreak and spilled coffee. His other pursuits include taking blurry photos of cats and flowers, making visual art from time to time, designing books and other ephemera, eating, conversing with strangers in coffee shops, delighting in verbal nonsense and getting lost by the oceanside.
