Cradle Book in The New Yorker's 2010 Best Poetry Books

On Dec 6, 2010 the New Yorker published a list of the “Eleven Best Poetry Books of 2010” compiled by Dan Chiasson. We are thrilled to say that Cradle Book by Craig Morgan Teicher made the list! Chiasson calls it, “A touching book of fables and fairy tales you could read to a child, saturated with Teicher’s unusually gentle and weird imagination. I’m counting these as ‘prose poems’ mainly to get them on this list.” It's worth noting that BOA started our fiction series with the intention of focusing on collections that fall between the gaps of fiction and poetry. Cradle Book is a perfect example of one of those books. It was published as "fiction" however it can fairly be classified as prose poetry, fables, stories, and probably a few other things too. You can call it whatever you want, including one of the “Eleven Best Poetry Books of 2010.” We call it a singular and beautiful collection of writing.  You can read“Eleven Best Poetry Books of 2010” here:  http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/newsdesk/2010/12/eleven-best-poetry-books-of-2010.html#ixzz17RgdA8KX [caption id="attachment_849" align="aligncenter" width="167" caption="Craig Morgan Teicher's "Cradle Book""]Craig Morgan Teicher's "Cradle Book"[/caption]
