"Filip Marinovich is one of my favorite living poets! He has lived his poems for many years now and we can trust he means it when he says, 'the tree's boyfriend is me / trim the pubes / and get ready for the muse.' Dendrophiliacs have a new champion, a poet as werewolf as they come, as beautiful as you can imagine! You love great poems and need this book! " -- CAConrad, author of While Standing in Line for Death
Filip Marinovich, author of The Suitcase Tree, writes: "I started writing a book based on a failed trip to Belgrade where I was supposed to stay for a month but only could stay four days due to breakdown insomnia grief mind voices. Went back to New York and listened to the book stop start. Then my uncle died. In the book we had the conversation I couldn't have with him in Belgrade."
