The Hands of Strangers: Poems from the Nursing Home

By: Janice N. Harrington

$16.00


The Hands of Strangers portrays the tensions and moments of grace between aged nursing home residents and their healthcare workers.  What does it mean to be a nurses’ aide in a nursing home, the lowest of the low, the typically-female worker who provides physical care for the devalued bodies of the elderly? What is it to live one’s remaining life on a county ward as an indigent elder?  The poems show women in motion: they lift bodies, push wheelchairs, give treatments, and  perform the myriad tasks of caretaking.  The poems show aides as anonymous figures laboring under routines, time clocks, and a distant medical hierarchy.  They tell also tell the stories of how the nursing home industry reshapes lives, bodies, and identities of both aides and the aged.

This New and Poisonous Air

By: Adam McOmber

$14.00

Blending historical fiction with fantasy and the macabre, Adam McOmber’s debut short story collection brings the influence of Angela Carter, Isak Dinesen, and Edgar Allen Poe to the next generation. In “The Automatic Garden,” a solitary architect from the court at Versailles builds a water-powered pleasure garden; in “There Are No Bodies Such as This” we read a haunted and romantic fiction about the creation of Madame Tussaud’s wax museum; in “Fall, Orpheum” a small town movie palace becomes the temple for an entire town’s devotion and sacrifice. Adam McOmber seamlessly blends history, artifice and desire to create a dream of the past that intertwines with our own notions of modern life.

Slope of the Child Everlasting

By: Laurie Kutchins

The poems in Slope of the Child Everlasting grew out of extended scrutiny of master poets--Matsuo Basho, Elizabeth Bishop, Garcia Lorca, Rainer Maria Rilke, Li Po, and others--as Kutchins searched for forms and voices to express post-September 11 rupture.

Smugglers

By: Ales Debeljak

$16.00


Bilingual Edition | Translated from the Slovenian by Brian Henry



The poems in Smugglers move through rapid historical shifts and meditations on personal experience, exploring the depths and limits of comprehension through the people and geography of the Balkans. Ultimately, Aleš Debeljak's urban imagination creates a mosaic—intimate and historical—of a vanished people and their country. Every poem in Smugglers is sixteen lines long—four quatrains, a common form for Debeljak. This structural regularity is reinforced by a commitment to visual balance, with each poem working as a kind of grid into which the poet pours memories and associative riffs.

Broken Hallelujahs Poems

By: Sean Thomas Dougherty

$15.50


Sean Thomas Dougherty was raised in an interracial family with an African-American step-father, and a mother whose grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Budapest and the Ukraine. Issues of identity and the complexities of history are central in his work. In Broken Hallelujahs, Dougherty uses a variety of experimental and traditional forms including canzone, prose poem, metered and elliptical poems. These aesthetic devices structure his themes of personal and historical fissure and the reconnection of such fissures.
