Publishers Weekly Features Two Boa Books
For the week of January 24, 2011, Publishers Weekly included two forthcoming poetry volumes by veteran Boa Editions authors! Christopher Kennedy's Ennui Prophet and the collaborative poems of John Gallaher and G.C.Waldrep, collected in Your Father on the Train of Ghosts, were both among this week's poetry selections. Your Father on the Train of Ghosts was also included in Publishers Weekly Top 10: Poetry! Both books are very interesting explorations of the poetic form that Boa Editions is excited to include in its new titles for Spring 2011, and we are thrilled to see them getting early press. Christopher Kennedy's perspective is one that "gazes through a slightly distorted lens to better see the world around us." Publishers Weekly described the collection of prose-poems as "deeply personal explorations...and examinations." Gallaher and Walderp's collaborations have been heralded as "one of the most extensive" in American poetry. Their process is an interesting one-- they wrote poems back and forth over the period of a year, and ultimately "a third 'voice' emerged that neither poet can claim as solely their own." Publishers Weekly describes this voice as "haunting." Both books are new Boa Editions titles in Spring 2011. Your Father on the Train of Ghosts by John Gallaher and G.C. Waldrep is due out on May 1, 2011. Ennui Prophet by Christopher Kennedy is due out on June 1, 2011. More information about both volumes and their authors is accessible through the Boa Editions website. Both books are available for pre-order on the Boa Editions website. All pre-orders are shipped at first availability.
