After: A Novel

In 1945 the Allied forces are trekking across Europe, pausing incidentally to free the Jews from Hitler's camps. Newly emerged from the ashes, three ex-prisoners--a logician, a saint and a schemer--come together. Led by 19-year-old Isaac Kaufman, this trio joins forces in survival to exploit the only industry up and running in a crippled German town, the black market--until they discover and decide to steal a four foot cube: "18 tons of golden ingots created from the fillings pried from the teeth of the Jews of Eastern Europe.".

The Best Disguise

The Best Disguise by Susan McLean, recipient of the 2009 Richard Wilbur Award, is a remarkable collection of varied lyric poems that examine contemporary life with wit, insight, and a profound intensity. As Philip Dacey comments, "In any mode -- plangent or bawdy, searing or witty -- the poems in this book consistently project both a consummate artistry and an affecting humanity." Despite the author s obvious erudition and formal skills, the poems in The Best Disguise are as accessible as they are affecting and memorable.

Permanent Address

Reading her work, one sees again and again the contingencies of domestic life transformed by those rituals that give them place and permanence. Permanent Address is a wise and joyful collection by a poet of impressive accomplishment. - Charles Martin.

Sixty Sonnets

A.E. Stallings writes that “like the minutes of the hour, these Sixty Sonnets both combine to make a whole and shine as individual moments. While groups of these sonnets occasionally suggest a narrative—refreshingly, like the fugitives and weary academics that people these pages—they work alone. The newspaper crime blotter itself, from which, perhaps, some of these incidents are torn, speaks up as a single sonnet.

Azores: Poems

Like a voyage to the Portuguese islands of the title, the poems in Azores arrive at their striking and hard-won destinations over the often-treacherous waters of experience—a man mourns the fact that he cannot not mourn, a father warns his daughter about harsh contingency, an unnamed visitor violently disrupts a quiet domestic scene. The ever-present and uncomfortable realities of envy, lust, and mortality haunt the book from poem to poem.

The Hidden Model (Triquarterly Books)

From the huddling men in a Rembrandt print to an image in a bathroom mirror that might be Christ or a mere smudge, David Yezzi, with his precisely carved and subtly cutting language, questions and considers the surfaces of our perceptions and the life they conceal-that which suggests, asks, demands to be seen.

Corridors is a collection of visually refreshing, and literary accomplished poems. Samantha Le, in her debut effort, exhibits a vibrant confidence, alluding to a poetic preoccupation of the fist order. The poems are self-referential but compassionate, objective but personal. The prose is reminiscent of Paz’s Agulia y Sol, Dario’s Azul, and Rimbaud’s Illuminations in its tendency to expose the poetic and mystical side of intersubjective human experiences. The work, as a whole, forms a loose narrative of coming-of-age poetry.
