  • Human Resourcesby Rachel Zolf

    Coach House Books 2003; US$ 13.95

    Write for buyers. Write for bosses. Think hyper. Think branding. Tell your visitor where to go. Poetry and ‘plain language? collide in the writing machine that is Human Resources . Here at the intersection of creation and repackaging, we experience the visceral and psychic cost of selling things with depleted words. Pilfered rhetorics fed into the... more...

  • Neighbour Procedureby Rachel Zolf

    Coach House Books 2010; US$ 13.95

    A virtuoso polyvocal correspondence with the daily news, ancient scripture and contemporary theory that puts the ongoing conflict in Israel/Palestine firmly in the crosshairs, Neighbour Procedure sees Zolf assemble an arsenal of poetic procedures and words borrowed from a cast of unlikely neighbours, including Mark Twain, Dadaist Marcel Janco,... more...

  • Clockfireby Jonathan Ball

    Coach House Books 2006; US$ 13.95

    Talented newcomer Jonathan Ball?s Clockfire is a suite of poetic blueprints for imaginary plays that would be impossible to produce – plays in which, for example, the director burns out the sun, actors murder their audience, and the laws of physics are flagrantly violated. The poems in one sense replace the need for drama, and are predicated on... more...

  • The Porcupinity of the Starsby Gary Barwin

    Coach House Books 2006; US$ 13.95

    In this much-anticipated new collection, poet and musician Gary Barwin both continues and extends the alchemical collision of language, imaginative flight and quiet beauty that have made him unique among contemporary poets. As the Utne Reader has noted, what makes this work 'so compelling is Barwin?s balance of melancholy with wide-eyed wonder.'... more...

  • Eunoiaby Christian Bök

    Coach House Books 2005; US$ 13.95

    The word ‘eunoia,? which literally means ‘beautiful thinking,? is the shortest word in English that contains all five vowels. Directly inspired by the Oulipo (l?Ouvroir de Littérature Potentielle), a French writers? group interested in experimenting with different forms of literary constraint, Eunoia is a five-chapter book in which each chapter... more...

  • The Refrigerator Memoryby Shannon Bramer

    Coach House Books 2001; US$ 13.95

    The Refrigerator Memory is an exuberant, strangely funny celebration of sadness. With fable-like miniature stories and short lyric poems, Shannon Bramer creates a world littered with stolen pears and prosthetic arms and inhabited by Kindness scientists and hot-air-balloon operators. The poems invoke a world of childhood delights and demons in... more...

  • Hagiographyby Jen Currin

    Coach House Books 2004; US$ 14.95

    Her acclaimed debut collection, The Sleep of Four Cities , announced the arrival of a fully formed, arresting new talent, and the poems in Jen Currin?s new collection, Hagiography , see her trademark cunning wordplay and entirely contemporary take on the surrealist image moving into new and more personal territory. In a style that regularly pushes... more...

  • The Inquisition Yoursby Jen Currin

    Coach House Books 2010; US$ 13.95

    In tongues alternately vulnerable, defiant, resigned, and hopeful, The Inquisition Yours speaks to the atrocities of our time – war, environmental destruction, terrorism, cancer, and the erosion of personal rights ? fashioning a tenuous bridge between the political and the personal. more...

  • Crabwise to the Houndsby Jeramy Dodds

    Coach House Books 2004; US$ 13.95

    With cameos by jackalopes, Glenn Gould, homemade spaceships, and Carl Linnaeus, these poems are remarkable for their technical agility and their restless inventiveness. There?s an elegance here that matches Dodds? impulse to challenge the reader with fresh metaphor and astonishing phrasing; the formal ambitions of many of the poems in Crabwise to... more...
