Bill Powers, What We Lose in Flowers, 2012, New York, 66 pp., $20.
We know Bill Powers, the Half Gallery proprietor and "Work of Art" judge, and his wife Cynthia Rowley, the adventurous fashion designer and sometime visual artist. Bill has also been an editor, and now he has written a new paperback book, What We Lose in Flowers. A short story, really, it is distinguished by its title, which rhymes with the author’s name (do writers do that?), and also by its cover, which is designed by Richard Prince and features black-and-white soft-core porn.
