Pachar N Dreams: The Pamplona Poems

Pachar N Dreams: The Pamplona Poems Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pacharan Dreams conveys the existential joy of living in the moment that the nine-day festival of the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona bestows upon its participants. It chronicles the months of anticipation leading up to the ritual, the celebration itself governed by the inherent rhythms of the special events, and the anguish of separation from the new community of revelers formed during the fiesta. This book is for those who seek to learn of other cultures through their festivals, Hemingway fans, or anyone who has experienced the freedom of living in the moment. __________

Marilyn Kiss' Pacharan Dreams is a sacramental infusion of singing, dancing and unbridled passion. Kiss takes the reader on a journey to a rich cultural landscape, the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, where secret fantasies are unleashed from the magic of the Pacharan. The language is seductive-an absolute MUST read

-- Pamela L. Laskin, author of Van Gogh's Ear (Cervena Barva); Secrets of Sheets (Plain View Press) and Ghosts, Goblins, Gods and Geodes (World Audience)

I didn't really know what to expect of Pacharan Dreams, a collection of poems about the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Sure enough, I am happy to report that Marilyn Kiss delivers with verve and panache. These poems flow with an inebriated technicolor logic that reminds the reader what it is to live both in, and for the moment. Kiss leads us on a journey through the existential streets of Pamplona: from the yearning anticipation of arrival to the adrenaline rush of the event itself to the reflective hangover of having to leave it all behind. If you've ever been to Pamplona for the Running of the Bulls, read this book. It will take you back. If you've never been to Pamplona, read this book. It will take you there... Coupled with Miguel Angel's crisp and evocative photographs, these poems offer a thoroughly enjoyable and lively reading experience. Fiesta Fiesta Fiesta

-- Danny Shot, Poet; Editor of Long Shot Magazine
