  • Poems After Midnightby Knopf

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2012; US$ 0.99

    Most poets are or have been at one time or another members of what Mark Strand here calls “The Midnight Club”: they are insomniacs, or feel most productive in the middle of the night, or, if nothing else, are people whose work requires an openness to the dreams, visions, and scraps of inspired language that may drift across our path in the wee hours.... more...

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2012; US$ 17.00

    The “exquisite and haunting” ( Booklist ) collection of poems built around the language and mystique of American captivity narratives in which Sheck enters the vivid life we live inside our own minds and selves, and takes us into the mysterious underside of consciousness and selfhood.

  • A Draft of Lightby John Hollander

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2012; US$ 26.00

    A glorious new collection from one of our most distinguished poets.

    In her remarkable Black Series , Laurie Sheck turns the ordinary world inside out and shows us its glittering seams.

  • The Willow Groveby Laurie Sheck

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2012; US$ 13.00

    Laurie Sheck interweaves the contemporary with the mythic, creating a realm in which such things as radios, skyscrapers, expressways, and mannequins are at once familiar and strange; immediate, yet tinged with the light of distance and myth. It is a realm where faces on a television newscast disappear "into the undertow / of hunger for the next thing... more...

  • Tossing and Turningby John Updike

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2012; US$ 11.50

    John Updike’s first collection of verse since Midpoint takes its title from a poem about insomnia.  Throughout, this is poetry with its eyes wide open, restlessly alert for the oddities of reality and the double entendres of imagination.  Fanciers of light verse will find a middle section of delicate fossil prints left by this vanished form; readers... more...
