From now until Oct. 1st, we're offering a 33% discount on new collections from Mary Ruefle and Noelle Kocot. Ruefle's Trances of the Blast is in hardcover, and with a discount it's only $15. That's cheaper than our softcovers this season. Plus, there's free domestic shipping, as always.
Trances of the Blast is a major new collection from beloved and award- winning poet Mary Ruefle. Full of the peculiarity and wit characteristic of Ruefle’s work, the poems deliver an imaginative take on the world’s rifts—its paradoxes, failures, and loss—and help us better appreciate its redeeming strangeness. In hardcover, on sale for $15.
Noelle Kocot’s sixth collection, built from the rubble and strangeness of everyday life, exists outside of time or telescope. Soul in Space is a masterful combination of Kocot’s intimacy of voice and authority over poetic form, and it leaves a brighter, weirder world in its wake. On sale for $12.
From now until Sept. 4th, we're offering a 33% discount on new softcover collections from Geoffrey G. O'Brien and Joshua Beckman. Free domestic shipping, as always.
Joshua Beckman is at his most immediate and attentive in The Inside of an Apple. His sincere, spare poems place the reader within the personal space of the author from inside his apartment to the mountains. From this perspective, the reader experiences a revelation of consciousness and a surprising generosity of spirit.
In People on Sunday, his most autobiographical collection to date, Geoffrey G. O’Brien explores—via the ‘promise of happiness’ in great works of art—the dream of a working freedom not relegated to a seventh day of rest. Crossing traditional poetic materials with contemporary political struggles, O’Brien leads the reader to a space of emergent voices and captures the complex feelings of the present.
The hardcover of Advice from 1 Disciple of Marx to 1 Heidegger Fanatic is on sale for $15 dollars. That's 50% off, and a dollar cheaper than the softcover. Sale lasts for two weeks (until August 5th).
Library Journal said of the book, "Best known as the inspiration for the irascible Ulises Lima in Roberto Bolaño’s famed novel The Savage Detectives, Santiago Papasquiaro is a formidable poet in his own right. His lyricism borders on the profane, with its bawdy metaphors and extensive use of vernacular imagery, often favoring an 'ugly,' highly visceral beauty over the prim imagery found in more formal work."
Our translation for this year, Advice from 1 Disciple of Marx to 1 Heidegger Fanatic by Mario Santiago Papasquiaro, is now on sale in paperback for $12 or limited edition hardcover for only $20. Advice is perfect for the Roberto Bolaño or translation lover! The Kenyon Review said of this book, "Santiago’s distress, derangement, and rages extend from a deep faith in poetry and its ability to both inscribe and incite new perceptions."
Also on sale is Geoffrey Nutter's The Rose of January, available in paperback for $12 or limited edition hardcover for $20. Publishers Weekly said "Nutter’s new volume ends up at once whimsical and tragic, a rich set of hues and a series of shadowy corners, whose allusive poems become places in which we hope to get lost." For Nutter fans and those looking to build their library, we're offering a special sale—get all three Nutter titles for only $30. That's a $13 discount!
