Rick Lupert's 18th book - a collection of travel poetry written on the go in the wilds of Burlington, Vermont, Portland, Maine and Hartford Connecticut. Force of Nature, Rick Lupert, and his wise wife, Addie, have been let loose in the Northeast, and the result is poetic mayhem of the highest order. These poems chronicle the couple's obsession with food, art, architecture, and each other over an action-packed 12-day roadtrip. "I'm following the Vermont food trail/and am about to pray to a donut," Lupert confesses in "At the Cold Hollow Cider Mill." A brilliant, beer-fogged take on America by one of the funniest, smartest poets around. ps. These poems could also be construed as Lupert's 293 page love letter to his wife. -Alexis Rhone Fancher, poetry editor, Cultural Weekly, seven-time Pushcart nominee Every year I look forward to Rick and Addie's summer vacation. Instead of a slide show or a lousy T-shirt I get another book of poems. What you have in your hands is a travelogue - the newest installment in a series of road books written by Rick Lupert, the minimalist Huell Howser of Van Nuys poetry. Lupert is a comedian with impeccable timing and a poet whose work is deceptively simple. Nestled somewhere underneath the jokes about tour guides, night pavers, Vermont hugs and kisses and Norman Rockwell paintings is an ongoing love story. This is really a book about Rick and Addie. It's a work that's underpinned by a depth and decency you don't see very often in this world, let alone in a book that will make you laugh out loud. -Daniel McGinn, Author "1000 Black Umbrellas," Write Bloody Publishing
