>Book Release Party: Matthew Rotando

June 29, 2008

Up-Set Press released Matthew Rotando’s poetry collection The Comeback’s Exoskeleton. Book release party was held at New York City’s famous Cornelia Street Cafe in the midst of a thunderstorm and the Pride March. In the midst of rain dances and rainbow festivities Matt Rotando read his surreal poetry to a full house. Stay tuned for an indepth interview with the poet. Until then enjoy some of the photos from the event:

Matt discusses the intricacies of his poetry with a word-enthusiast.

Matt cannot be boxed in (even if Zohra boxed him into a mirror for this shot).

After the reading, Matt’s nephew uses his amazing abilities to peer directly into his uncle’s brain. “Where does all this creativity come from?”
