Echoing back to a time when prose was poetic and romance meant the passion of dreamers as well as lovers, “Dreams in the Womb” explores the wanton-romantic heart of prose-poet Brandon Gene Petit in an eclectic collection of prose and verse. While not without an occasional well-dosed touch of darkness, the images and themes in “Dreams” are, as a whole, decidedly elegant and tasteful in a way that aims to allure and dazzle the reader. The poems are designed to be musically fluid, the quotes boast great meaning in all their brevity, and the numerous segments of descriptive prose tend to play out like miniature stories or erotic vignettes. Dreamers and seekers of beauty can escape the mundane light of day and drench themselves in dense verbiage as dark and thick as crimson wine, ultimately revisiting the ornate and redolent eras of Joyce, Dunsany and Poe.

"Petit has a way of choosing and using words that depict the most perfect visions and replicas of his imagination... I feel as if I've been bestowed with one of literature's best-kept secrets after having been introduced to Petit."

-Sarah Ann, Dreamworld Book Reviews

"These are vivid poems, bright in their use of images and the way they inflect the reality of their stories with new light, new ways of seeing things... We're able to see how so much of what we 'briefly glimpse' can really affect us powerfully."

-Judge, Writer's Digest 21st Annual Self-Published Book Awards
