Good news from Red Hen press. They will publish Frederick Feirstein's new book Time's Refugee later this year. There
are also plans to re-release his previous nine titles. From Grolier
Press will come an anniversary edition of Manhattan Carnival with
a new introduction by Frederick Turner. And word has
it that Uprising, Fred's musical, will finally be done in Poland
this year, this despite last year's cancellation of what the government
there called "Jewish projects". Uprising is a
magnificent work, a love story set in the Warsaw Uprising, and ought to be seen on Broadway as well as in Poland.
The Webmaster saw a moving version of this play at Nassau Community College
some years back and wondered why it wasn't taken seriously by New York
producers then. Maybe now...Frederick Feirstein is one of the
co-founders of the Expansive Poetry movement.
