On his blog, Eunuch Blues, Brian Foley (self-described as a "sharp object) goes after the Art of the Blurb.
The Mockingbird Blurb!
(and proves that he is indeed a sharp object.)
The phrase that caught my eye and adrenaline's "blowing on a rape whistle."
On a similar note, here (on my Facebook Group for Holy Land) is how I introduce my book's blurbs
"My woman says there is no one whom she'd rather marry
than me, not even Jupiter, if he came courting,
That's what she says-- but what a woman says to a
ought to be scribbled on wind, on running water."
(Catullus, translated by Charles Martin)
that being said, to follow are the blurbs on the back
of "Holy Land"
