Sentences: A Book of Poetry

Philip Trussell by Bill Daniel

a book by Philip Trussell

Book Launch Party

Music by 

Philip Trussell’s Sentences are fallen aphorisms from a hermetic cosmos: quotidian and mystical, cantankerous and surprisingly humane. These cutting ripostes to the information age are more Elizabethan than postmodern, yet timeless in their devotion to the craft of disciplined observation. Trussell’s truncated satire probes at the habits of social life and the routines of ego with a nihilist’s shtick, discontinuous and unabashedly Promethean. Sentences is a singular literary debut by a seasoned outsider artist.

Paperback. 84 pages. Edited by Bradley Ray King. Twenty-six copies lettered and signed by the author, each containing an original sentence.

  1. I wasn’t able to make the reading and was so delighted learn of this site. Loved to hear Philip read from “Sentences” and this was a wonderful production. So very thoughtfully put together, with his paintings in the background. Thanks to all responsible for this program.

    I am an artist also. I live in Houston. I was born in 1943. I have a son named Philippe.

    My family lived in Louisiana when I was growing up. I have lived in Louisiana, Texas, New Jersey, New York City, Rome, And California…so far. My wife is from Mexico City originally.

    I paint and draw by commission only. My wife and I collect living artist works. We socialize with various artists in many locales.

    Just saying hello. If you ever come to Houston, it might be fun to meet for a hello and glass of vino. CONN TRUSSELL. Ps. I also have a real estate business.
