This enhanced multimedia e-book version of Leaning Toward Whole is in ePub format. (It will display beautifully on your iPad, iTouch or iPhone.) It contains the full text of the original perfect bound chapbook plus authentic live audio recordings for most of the poems in M. D. Friedman’s Leaning Toward Whole manuscript. These recordings (complete with the occasional hiss of the espresso machine) were provided courtesy of the Poets’ Co-op TV Show and were recorded at the Liquid Light Press Book Launch Party at Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Café in Boulder, Colorado, on June 8, 2011. In addition, the e-book includes an animated, two-voice video version of the poem, “Know Where to Go Crazy.” The separate video file for just this digital poem is also available on I-Tunes. (Search "Know Where to Go Crazy" in the iTune Store for a preview.)
Leaning Toward Whole is special poetry. This chapbook is our first publication at Liquid Light Press, and we feel it embodies our mission to promote the artistic sharing of the human journey to consciousness and inner experiences difficult to express in linear vocabulary. This is the fifth poetry book of the Colorado poet, M. D. Friedman, and contains pieces both poignant and personal. Leaning Toward Whole speaks to both the universal and the everyday, both the moment and the millennium.
