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. Although following closely on the heels of Petit’s previous collection, the somewhat vexed and Poe-esque work entitled Ab Antiquo, Ab Aeterno, Dreams in the Womb professes to take us to more beautiful, more fragrant and visually delectable places than before, leaving the relatively gothic overtones of Petit’s past works somewhat distant but not forgotten. 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.

Praise for Dreams in the Womb:

“The prose pieces were my favorite pieces in the book. Each time I found one, I was overjoyed, and I looked forward towards the next one. This is where Petit turned me upside down, shook me, and set me back again. Yes, it is that good.”

– Henry Martin, Mad Days of Me

“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

“In Dreams in the Womb, author Brandon Gene Petit takes us on a sensuous journey. Bursts of passion fill the pages and invoke images within the mind’s eye. It will fill your imagination with delectable images and enticing possibilities.”

–          Nicole Morgan, erotic romance author

“A wonderful collection…  sultry and smooth… it filled my mind with vivid images, provoking thousands of thoughts. “

–          Courtney Breazile, erotic romance author

“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
