Catfish McDaris – My Life Between Van Gogh And 27 Hammerheads Circling Ever Closer


I met Catfish McDaris some days ago. He was inundated with submissions about his Vincent Van Gogh project, so I decided that also mine could fit with his anthology. They fit and suddenly I found an editor and a friend. He is well known in the poetry independent panorama in the U.S.A. and this is what he told to me about his love for Van Gogh art, his last book “27 Hammerheads Circling Ever Closer” and his future projects.
