  • Leaving the Pink Houseby Ladette Randolph

    University of Iowa Press 2014; US$ 18.00

    Ladette Randolph understands her life best through the houses she has inhabited. From the isolated farmhouse of her childhood, to the series of houses her family occupied in small towns across Nebraska as her father pursued his dream of becoming a minister, to the equally small houses she lived in as a single mother and graduate student, houses have... more...

  • The Iowa State Fairby Kurt Ullrich

    University of Iowa Press 2014; US$ 25.00

    Every year in early August, a breeze borne by silent messengers from another time blows through Iowa. It carries a whiff of something wonderful, something far off and a bit unclear, yet oddly familiar. It's a reminder that an extraordinary annual event is about to take place, just as it has for more than 150 years: the Iowa State Fair. In 2013,... more...

  • Campaign Inc.by Henry F. Jr. De Sio.

    University of Iowa Press 2014; US$ 19.00

    It takes more than an excellent candidate to win elections; it takes an outstanding campaign organization, too. Campaign Inc. is the story of how leadership and organization propelled Barack Obama to the White House. As the chief operating officer of Obama?s 2008 presidential campaign, Henry F. De Sio, Jr., was positioned to view this historic campaign... more...

  • Tricksterby Randall Potts

    University of Iowa Press 2014; US$ 18.50

    Trickster opens with a crank call to the reader: ?How was I to know / You were thin, your garden / Was covered in smoke / That you sat in your house / Coughing?? Over the course of these beautiful and eerily accomplished poems, Potts's reader is taken on a journey that is at once time-scarred and resolutely contemporary, earthy and haunted, moving... more...

  • Congotronicby Shane Book

    University of Iowa Press 2014; US$ 18.50

    At once original, strange, funny, and unnerving, Shane Book?s Congotronic takes the reader into unstable territory, where multiple layers of voice, diction, and music collide. Some of these poems have the sparse directness of a kind of bleak prayer; others mingle the earthbound rhythms of hip-hop with the will-to-transcendence of high Romanticism.... more...

  • A Place for Humilityby Christine Gerhardt

    University of Iowa Press 2014; US$ 47.50

    Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman are widely acknowledged as two of America?s foremost nature poets, primarily due to their explorations of natural phenomena as evocative symbols for cultural developments, individual experiences, and poetry itself. Yet for all their metaphorical suggestiveness, Dickinson?s and Whitman?s poems about the natural world... more...

  • Up in Hereby Mark Dostert

    University of Iowa Press 2014; US$ 19.00

    Raised in a comfortable Dallas suburb, Mark Dostert crossed cultural and socioeconomic boundaries as a college student by volunteering as a counselor at the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center, Chicago?s infamous 500-cell juvenile jail, known locally as the Audy Home. Inmates there had been indicted on first-degree murder, rape, and carjacking... more...

  • Birds of an Iowa Dooryardby Althea R. Sherman; Marcia Myers Bonta

    University of Iowa Press 1996; US$ 26.00

    Now available in paperback with a new foreword by Marcia Myers Bonta,  Birds of an Iowa Dooryard  contains Althea Sherman's often caustic, always careful studies of the phoebes, wrens, cuckoos, rails, catbirds, owls, flickers, and many other species that inhabited her Acre of Birds in northern Iowa.  Birds of an Iowa Dooryard,  first... more...

  • Edge Effectsby Chris Anderson

    University of Iowa Press 1993; US$ 23.95

    Buying his dream house several years ago on the forest's edge near Corvallis, Oregon, essayist Chris Anderson hoped to find the joys of rural living. Despite interminable Mr. Blandings experiences, he lived embowered by 12,000 acres of seemingly endless fir trees. But not for long. The McDonald-Dunn Forest was about to become the site of a disturbing... more...
