Poetry Giveaway – Film Noir by David Jibson
Film Noie: A Celebration of Film Noir in Poetry.
I love old films and I especially love film noir. In this collection I celebrate some of the characters, plots, and familiar settings of film noir through poetry. Inside you’ll find dark cityscapes and blind alleys. There are private-eyes, taxi dancers, thugs, mugs, crime bosses, night club sirens, crooked cops, gun molls and a morgue full of bodies. The newsreels and the previews of coming attractions are done. The projectionist is nicely drunk. Settle back in your seat, claim the armrests on both sides and enjoy the feature. – David Jibson
Poem Noir is out of print, but a digital edition is now available free to anyone from the author’s website.
