How Things Were Not: Imaginative Tales Told in Rhyme

By Denis Boggs


The prologue explains all. From Julius Ceasar, Cleopatra, Marc Antony, Marie Antoinette (even Alice of Wonderland fame), with Picasso, Peggy Guggenheim, Agatha Christie, Hemingway and Patricia Highsmith thrown into stew, we think the reader will find something new. As for fellow devotees of the movie, Casablanca, the author begs indulgence.

Born in West Virginia in 1935, Denis Boggs, a retired teacher, now lives in Reno, Ohio. Previous books of poetry are: A Crooked Picture; Deception Island; and Getting There (Departures and Arrivals). He promises this one to be the last. In his own words, “There will be no more; no doubt prompting someone to say, Thank God!”

As you’re familiar, during these extraordinary times, we’ve taken on significant volume and have had to extend our turnaround times on U.S. orders over the last two weeks. As we manage that previous volume and continually receive new orders, we must extend our turnaround times further. As a result, we’re required to further extend the turnaround times for U.S. print orders. We expect to be back to traditional operating turnaround times in a few weeks and appreciate your business and support during this challenging time.

Turnaround Times for U.S. Print Orders

•U.S. orders for paperback books are estimated to print in 22 business days

•U.S. orders for hardcover books are estimated to print in 24 business days
