Garbanzo is another entry into the canon of the Quiescence series of chapbooks -- hand-created books that are rivet bound, satin bookmarked, screen-printed dust-jacketed, and individually numbered. There are, without a doubt, no other books being created in this way, anywhere, within a solar system or three.

A literary journal like no other, Garbanzo seeks to open the loudspeaker of storytelling to all those who pour forth their heart and soul into the ink that longs for the page. Based neither on one’s prior conquests, nor their lineage of authorial name, our book features a mix of forty-one tale-tellers both new and seasoned, loquacious and brief, serious and witty and utilizing the form and format of stories, poems, essays, pieces of theatre and...Garbanzo (volume five) includes Why Is It? by Amy Lerman - winner of the Art Young Memorial Award for Poetry

Garbanzo (book five) is COMING SOON. The book is 172 pages and is limited to 304 6/10ths printed copies.
