Default Show Us Your Papers: A Poetry Anthology

It's a tough time for book launches, and as a contributor to this anthology I'm doing my bit for marketing, so here goes:

Now available for pre-order! Show Us Your Papers: A Poetry Anthology. Here's why you want this book, in some words from its introduction:

Show Us Your Papers speaks to a crisis of identity and belonging, to an increasing sense of vulnerability amid rapid changes in the USA. While corporations wait to assign us a number, here are 81 poets who demand full identities, richer than those allowed by documents of every sort. Here are poems of immigration and concentration camps, of refugees and wills, marriage and divorce, of lost correspondence and found parents, of identity theft and medical charts. In an era where the databases multiply, where politicians and tech companies sort us into endless categories, identifying documents serve as thumbtacks. They freeze the dancing, lurching, rising and falling experience of our lives. The disconnect between our documents and our identities is inherent, reductive, frustrating, and, too often, dangerous. Yet we cannot live without them. In this anthology 81 poets offer a richer sense of our lives and histories—richer than any “official paper” allows. These lyric and narrative forms demand that readers recognize our full identities: personal, familial, national, and historical.
And here is where you can learn even more and place your pre-order for the book: http://mainstreetragbookstore.com/pr...try-anthology/

Just ordered! Sounds interesting.

BTW, the pre-order price is significantly cheaper than the cover price.

Thanks, Julie! And I should start pointing out that price difference at the outset.
