  • Crossing the Snowlineby Pauline Stainer

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    Pauline Stainer is a poet ‘working at the margins of the sacred?, conveying sensations ‘with an economy of means that is breathtaking… her poems are not merely artefacts, they have an organic life of their own? (John Burnside). Crossing the Snowline charts her return to life after numbing grief. These luminous poems are a testament of recovery, renewal... more...

  • Strayby Amanda Dalton

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    Stray is a book about strays – human and animal – and about straying. It?s about the lost and being lost, searching for home, and it?s about the extraordinary places we sometimes discover when we?re off the beaten track, deliberately or accidentally off-course. It?s sometimes a noun and it?s sometimes a verb – almost a command. As Allan?s mind strays... more...

  • Finding a Leg to Stand Onby Connie Bensley

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Connie Bensley?s poems are sharply satirical, often poking fun at social pretence and suburban pretension. They present a comedy of manners in which mismatched characters are bounced between love, death and disappointment. Hers is a seemingly small world but one which spans a whole universe of everyday life. Finding a Leg to Stand On is a retrospective... more...

  • Guffby Brendan Kennelly

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Brendan Kennelly's Guff is both mouthpiece and mouthed off, Devil's advocate and self critic, everyman and every writer consumed by self-doubt and self-questioning. The book of Guff is about words writing the man. Words drive him into the cave of himself where he questions everything including words that seem to constitute answers and answers that... more...

  • Deep Fieldby Philip Gross

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    In his nineties Philip Gross?s father, a wartime refugee, began to lose his several languages, first to deafness, then profound aphasia. Deeply thought as well as deeply felt, these poems reach into that gulf to find him – through recovery of histories both spoken and unspoken as well as an excavation of the spoken word itself. Readers who admired... more...

  • Ireland Is Changing Motherby Rita Ann Higgins

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    Ireland Is Changing Mother is the latest collection from Rita Ann Higgins: provocative and heart-warming poems of high jinx, jittery grief and telling social comment by a gutsy, anarchic chronicler of the lives of the Irish dispossessed, before as well as since the demise of the Celtic tiger. 'It shouldn't be unusual to hear a smart, sassy, unabashed,... more...

  • Day Releaseby Aidan Rooney-Cespedes

    The Gallery Press 2014; US$ 10.94

    Aidan Rooney-Cespedes' first collection reveals an unusual maturity and singular scope. His widely published, prize-winning poems range from the rich imaginings of "Retro Creation" through various locales -- from County Monaghan, where he was born and raised, Paris and the literary past, to North America, where he now lives. As it blends the colloquial... more...

  • Bedouin of the London Evening: Collected Poemsby Rosemary Tonks

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    The disappearance of the poet Rosemary Tonks in the 1970s was one of the literary world?s most tantalising mysteries – the subject of a BBC feature in 2009 called The Poet Who Vanished. After publishing two extraordinary poetry collections – and six satirical novels – she turned her back on the literary world after a series of personal tragedies... more...

  • »A la recherche de l?homme perdu«by Susanna Frings

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2014; US$ 31.56

    Die vorliegende Studie bietet eine neuartige Lesart des französischen Gegenwartsromans an. So wird anhand dreier Romane der vieldiskutierten und doch sehr gegensätzlichen Autoren Jean Echenoz, Jean-Philippe Toussaint und Michel Houellebecq aufgezeigt, dass das Ergründen ihres literarischen Projekts einer stärkeren Hinwendung zu ihrem ethischen und... more...

  • Lebenszeichen mit 14 Nothelfernby Hermann Peter Piwitt

    Wallstein Verlag 2014; US$ 12.62

    Ein autobiographischer Rückblick in Geschichten. Erzählkunststücke über die frühen Prägungen, die schönen und schmerzvollen Erfahrungen in einem langen Schriftstellerleben.
