Homemade Custer

Chapbook 5.07


eBook N/A

A concept chapbook of poems and postcard illustrations about the myths, legends, facts, and fiction surrounding General George Armstrong Custer and the Indians who fought in the Battle of Little Bighorn during Custer’s infamous Last Stand. An intimate comparison between the romanticism of the Old West and the stark realism of a contemporary journey to the Custer Battlefield creates a journalistic backbone to the author’s imagined tale of a fateful day that shaped history.

About the author
CEE is a failed short story writer, failed novelist, and failed playwright. In the early 2000’s, he developed Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, forcing him, by 2007, to fall back to the shorthand of poetry. Over 600 of his poems have since seen or will see some form of media. He has been printed in such diverse publications as bear creek haiku, Jerry Jazz Musician, Children, Churches and Daddies, Tales of the Talisman, The Storyteller, Barbaric Yawp, The Iconoclast, Poiesis, and Dreams and Nightmares. His poem, “It’s An Old Story,” received a Pushcart Prize nomination in 2009.

CEE is the author of 17 chapbooks, including 12 times 12 equals Gross, Und ihr Habt Doch Gesiegt (You Have Finally Won), I Am Not Sydney Carton, tomB Baby (with Hot Robert Toddy), and Gunther; and has been included in the international mailers of Marymark Press.
