Quarry Books


Quarry Books is a series of chapbooks intended to reclaim Vermonters who time has buried less than overlooked. The past may not make itself known to us until we have caught up with it, despite the efforts of the archaeologists and historians. It may take a word, a shout in the street, rustlings of one kind or another - the collisions of deja vu - to bring it back. The already-heard, as it were, that reaches us like an echo.

"You will follow shadow and sunlight, you will be broken/by the bird, by the ghost of love, by the word half spoken.." 
 Frances Frost

"Hear/the song long dead, my grandfather's twang, my mother's elegant kind closed rumble, children's pitched cries call me/out, that other time, values."
Paul Blackburn
