“Like Music” is An Astonishing Journey in the Art of Unforgettable Poetic Verse

Inside this new volume of poetry, “Like Music” by Charles Christie, the author has an incredible gift to use his literary skills to make poetry like music, photographing pictures not with a camera but with words and creating a inaudible intonation with every line.

Christie is amazingly able to combine all three passions of poetry, music, and photography by use of the verses presented on every page of this awesome collection. Genuinely speaking, society is full of self-appointed poets; however, Christie’s talents are far beyond self-profession.

Publishers rarely choose poets for publication, but this book is indeed a marvelous choice. Those who appreciate excellent poetry will relish Christie’s work as he creates masterpiece upon masterpiece on every page. Collectors of the ‘art of lyric’ will never be disappointed with this new addition to their libraries.

This book will be featured at the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12-16, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
