Baseball as a Spiritual Practice

BY MICHAEL WENTWORTH
@ VOL 20 ON AUG 25, 2016

Michael Wentworth is a 4th generation Kennebunk native, the attention-starved youngest of 5, father of 3 and soon-to-be grandfather of what he hopes to be many.  In the real-life work world, he is the General Manager of the Energy Services Group at Thayer Corporation. Closer to the heart and bones, he relies on the urging of his artist wife to trigger the creativity that he forgets is there and remind him that he will one day fulfill the promise of his potential as a writer, poet, actor, teacher, karaoke singer and billionaire philanthropist.

10 Devils, 10 Forms of Castration

BY COLIN SARGENT
@ VOL 20 ON AUG 25, 2016

Year-round summer person Colin Sargent, the founding editor & publisher of Portland Monthly Magazine, grew up on Gooch's Beach. A novelist, magazine publisher, and poet, Sargent's new novel The Boston Castrato is just out from Barbican Press on London, with the US release on October 1. This is not your grandmother's Christmas book: "For anyone who might have imagined 1920s Boston to be a bit stuffy and not quite the toddling town of Chicago or New York, The Boston Castrato will likely change that opinion. Bustling with snobs, intellectuals, criminals, immigrants, artists, and a definite LGBT presence, Sargent's Boston is vivid, violent, quirky, cultured, and peopled with memorable characters."–Foreword Review
