  • Clockfireby Jonathan Ball

    Coach House Books 2006; US$ 13.99

    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$ 13.99

    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$ 13.99

    The word eunoia,? which literally means beautiful thinking,? is the shortest word in English that contains all five vowels.

  • 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$ 14.99

    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$ 13.99

    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$ 13.99

    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...

  • The Certainty Dreamby Kate Hall

    Coach House Books 2005; US$ 13.99

    Descartes asked, How can I know that I am not now dreaming? The Certainty Dream poses similar questions through poetry, but without the trappings of traditional philosophy. Kate Hall?s bracingly immediate, insistently idiosyncratic debut collection lays bare the tricks and tools of her trade: a mynah bird perches in poems but 'stands for nightingale';... more...
