Designed and published by William Michaelian, the Author's Press Series is a set of relatively inexpensive, uniformly designed titles that explore different themes and facets of his writing. The eighty entries in this first volume, The Painting of You, blend poetry and prose written in a three-year period during which the author was caring for his mother in her home while she was battling Alzheimer's Disease. The difficulties they faced are set against a revealing backdrop of family history, daily life, and dreams, as their roles are reversed and their friendship is deepened and colored by change. ------------- Michaelian is the author of two volumes of poetry, Winter Poems and Another Song I Know, published by Cosmopsis Books in 2007. Widely published in the small press, he has written two novels, three story collections, a daily journal in two volumes, and numerous columns, essays, and reviews. Songs and Letters, a 716-page collection of poetry and prose, was completed in 2009.
