Charles Clifford Brooks III made a career out of telling the truth, but not outright. His first book of poetry, The Draw of Broken Eyes & Whirling Metaphysics, was nominated for a Pulitzer and Georgia Author of the Year. It was first published by Gosslee Books, and it is still on the shelves today. The success of his first book built the groundwork for Athena Departs: Gospel of a Man Apart, Clifford’s second collection of verse.

Both will slip onto shelves in the fall of 2017.

Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
When I wrote ORPHAN TRAIN, I had no idea that this novel about a little-known slice of American history would resonate with so many. I’m delighted to add my notes to some of the most-highlighted passages – notes that I hope will shed some light on my inspiration, research, and thought process as I wrote the book. I welcome your responses and am excited to begin this dialogue with readers! Please comment on my answers and I’ll be glad to respond.

Noam Chomsky
“Language is a process of free creation; its laws and principles are fixed, but the manner in which the principles of generation are used is free and infinitely varied. Even the interpretation and use of words involves a process of free creation.”
Chomsky, Noam

Edgar Allan Poe
“Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence– whether much that is glorious– whether all that is profound– does not spring from disease of thought– from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Complete Tales and Poems

Woodrow Wilson
“I not only use all the brains that I have, but all I can borrow.”
Woodrow Wilson

Albert Camus
“An intellectual? Yes. And never deny it. An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself. I like this, because I am happy to be both halves, the watcher and the watched. "Can they be brought together?" This is a practical question. We must get down to it. "I despise intelligence" really means: "I cannot bear my doubts.”
Albert Camus

Søren Kierkegaard
“People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.”
Søren Kierkegaard
