Cover Reveal: The Beloved Republic

I'm excited about the cover for my next book to be published by Wandering Aengus Press at the beginning of 2023. It is based on an idea that runs through the collection of essays that the universe does not follow straight lines and was based on a photograph by my daughter-in-law Namrata Harvey.

What is the Beloved Republic? E. M. Forster, who coined the phrase, called it “an aristocracy of the sensitive, the considerate, and the plucky” who “have the power to endure” and “can take a joke.” Pitted against authoritarianism, the Beloved Republic is the peaceful and fragile confederacy of kind, benevolent, and creative people in a world of tyrants, thugs, and loud-mouthed bullies. Taking Forster’s phrase for its title, my book can be read as dispatches from that besieged land.
