    University Press of Colorado 2011; US$ 13.95

    "When you open this book, expect serious role-playing and syntactic tap dancing. The City She Was presents a world that brings 'the horizon line into your lexicon' and a poet's muse ('The Endangered You') is lent to a friend and returned 'a little more frayed.' Giménez Smith muddles and enchants with her many masks, leaving the ground a little less... more...

  • Scared Textby Eric Baus

    University Press of Colorado 2011; US$ 13.95

    "Marvelously sustained and densely rhythmic, this tightly constructed whole is built of parts that, at each level, all the way down to the phrase, constitute poems in themselves.

    Milkweed Editions 2012; US$ 15.99

    In her accomplished second collection of poems, Katrina Vandenberg writes from the intersection of power and forgiveness.

Moving... more...

    Milkweed Editions 2012; US$ 15.99

    The distilled, haunting, and subtly complex poems in Adam Clay?s A Hotel Lobby at the Edge of the World often arrive at that moment when solitude slips into separation, when a person suddenly realizes he can barely see the place he set out from however long ago. He now sees he must find his connection back to the present, socially entangled world... more...

  • Smoke and Lilacsby Norm Sibum

    Carcanet 2011; US$ 11.99

    Smoke and Lilacs is full of play and shadow, whispered intimations of mortality and glances of humour, elegiac lyric playing against steely classicism, an easy modern vernacular eliding with timeless grace. Sibum's meditative narratives move between worlds, modern and ancient, the state of our civic order and the realm of love. Human love and lust... more...
