Critically acclaimed, each volume features prose, poetry & art from all walks of life everywhere in the world!
In 2002, Ian Ayres founded this international anthology series that brings together the most innovative prose, poetry and art by major talents and discovered prodigies from around the globe. Based in Paris, France and published in conjunction with Allen Ginsberg’s Committee on Poetry in New York, Van Gogh’s Ear breaks new ground by introducing a community of poets, novelists, artists, political activists, celebrity legends, and never-before-heard voices from all walks of life whose work stems from the traditional to the experimental, daring, thought-provoking, and imaginative. Distributed and sold throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, South Africa and Australia, this internationally acclaimed seven-volume series has become an affluent resource for universities, teachers, students and readers alike.
