the new book
intimate geography

Click here for more information Intimate Geography is a poetic record of discovery. Ishmael Von Heidrick-Barnes invites his readers to join him on an international trek through many of this century's major events. It is a journey where the boundaries between person and place, language and life counter-intuitively vanish under the lens of poetry.

When Ishmael points the telescopic eye of verse at the world, he finds the world looking back. When he turns the same navigational instrument inward towards his psyche, the unedited universe streams into focus.
