Three new poetry collections:
The Return by Eleanor Cooke
Past and present, the living and the ever-present dead, meet in Eleanor Cooke’s intensely personal poems of love and loss.
Deep Language by Alan Sondheim
Writing detours through digital and other media, returning with new forms and genres, new ways of thinking philosophy, the body, religion, and everything else.
Playing Solitaire for Money by Adrian Slatcher
From urban nature poems, to noir nightmares, Adrian Slatcher’s collection provides a new take on our globalised experience, seeing us as small parts in “a colossal machine.”
Alex y Robert by Wena Poon
The witty, modern fable of Alejandra, a young American woman determined to become a matador, and Roberto, a reluctant star Spanish bullfighter whom she recruits to help her.
Future Missionaries of America by Matthew Vollmer
From a Seventh Day Adventist boarding school to a traveling exhibition of plasticine bodies, Vollmer’s twelve stories are at once sorrowful, exuberant, and absurdly comical.
