Q & A with Arthur Turea about Places and Times

Tell us about Places and Times.
When I started writing poetry again, quite a few memories came back to me and I reflected on the person I became today. I also became more aware of my surroundings, and some things that confirmed some of the decisions I made.

What initially inspired you to write Places and Times?
A friend and fellow poet, Joanna Kurowska, told me my poetry was good enough to be published. That started me thinking about putting some things in order.

What was the hardest part of writing Places and Times?
Sorting through several decades of places and events, and trying to find those m…

They call me Dash.

Sixteen years ago my brother and I were kidnapped. The Scorpeones believed our father, boss of the Vitaliev Bratva, could be pressured into relinquishing his hold on Chicago’s underworld.

They were dead wrong.

Ultimately the Scorpeones made the youngest of their family pay for their sins. I tried not to care. Marco Polo Scorpeone, the hostage whose life was forfeit if his family moved on the Vitalievs, was the enemy. Why should I care if he was tortured worse than a prisoner of war?
