When Jared Leising, whose work appears in A Slice of Cherry Pie, met David Lynch during his January 2006 visit to Seattle, Jared got close enough to give him a copy of our little chap for him to keep!
"[He] hadn't heard of it and was excited to read it (and said something like, "wowee bob")," Jared said.
Jared's poem from the chapbook has also received a Work of the Day nod from Dan Wickett of the Emerging Writers Network, who writes that 'Diane Dreams of Dale's Voice'...
"...works well though, these combinations, creating a very Lynchian feeling to the words.
It's an interesting little collection — especially if you are a fan of the work of David Lynch."
Jared Leising read his poems at the Seattle Poetry Festival, where he had copies of both his chapbook, plus a limited number of A Slice of Cherry Pies.
