They Are Only Spoons
Author: John M. Starino
This is the third published collection of poems by the Columbia author. The book is divided into three sections: struggle, resolution and frisson. This year is the 10th anniversary of the death of Starino’s parents, and some of the poems offer his thoughts on his family. He will be signing his book from 5 to 8 p.m. on May 23 at White Rose Crossing, 831 Meeting St., West Columbia.
Dear: Your Name Here
Author: Gully Zucca
Publisher: Thought Catalog
A song title from many years ago — “Breaking Up is Hard to Do” — could be the subtitle of this book. It’s a collection of letters from a boy to a girl, chronicling the ups and downs and ultimate ugly disintegration of their long-distance romance. Gully Zucca is the pen name of a man who studies and teaches at the University of South Carolina.
My Year with a Jersey Girl
Author: Joseph Mercurio
The author took care of his son’s neurotic golden retriever (the “Jersey Girl” of the title) while his son was serving in South Korea. The Lexington man — a transplant from New Jersey — said writing the book was better than the alternative: attending mental therapy after caring for the dog. A financial adviser, he is also the author of The Calendar Budget, a guide to changing personal spending habits.
