THE LINING OF OUR SOULS features short prose pieces inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper. "Roland Perez's remarkable transpositions of art open the reader to a Hopper-inspired universe. His vignettes center on the big city and its inhabitants: apartment houses and hotels-their front desks, their windows with half-lowered shades; on to the shift and flow of small town life, with its mountains and sounds of the sea..Perez has superbly captured the physicality of Hopper's paintings in all of their hermeticism and brashness."-Bettina L. Knapp. Rolando Perez was born in Cuba and now works as a librarian at Hunter College in New York City. His book THE DIVINE DUTY OF SERVANTS is also available from SPD.
