English/Philosophy Adjunct Gary Rainford's New Book of Poems

English/Philosophy Adjunct and Swans Island, Maine resident Gary Rainford celebrates the publication of his second full-length book of poems. Published through North Country Press, LINER NOTES is a suite of poems that combine the author's love of popular music with various formative memories and states of lyric apprehension. In all of the poems, Rainford cites and reframes song lyrics from his favorite rock-n-rollers to achieve moments of epiphanic clarity.

With endorsements from musicologists, journalists, and two well-known musicians, LINER NOTES has already garnered critical praise, such as in the following link:
