Andrew Mourningstar


Seattle Song is a free verse poem that Andrew Mourningstar craftily works into his first book, Northern Lights. The poem was written, he explains in the novel, on a napkin at a notorious Seattle dive—The Frontier Room—during the height of the Seattle music craze. The book is scheduled for publication later this year. Check back for a longer prose excerpt soon...
