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.

The Collected Poems of John Logan

By: John Logan

$10.00


"What I love about John Logan's poems is what we loved in him as a man: their warmth and directness, their affection for the world and its lives and the way they happen. The poems seem transparent, a current in which orescence and change, joy and loss, our involvement with them, are all but palpable."- W.S. Merwin

Kingdom Animalia

By: Aracelis Girmay

$16.00


Published as Winner of the 2011 Isabella Gardner Poetry Award, the poems in this highly anticipated second book are elegiac poems, as concerned with honoring our dead as they are with praising the living. Through Aracelis Girmay’s lens, everything is animal: the sea, a jukebox, the desert. In these poems, everything possesses a system of desire, hunger, a set of teeth and language. These are poems about what is both difficult and beautiful about our time here on earth

The Book of Goodbyes

By: Jillian Weise

$16.00


WINNER, 2013 JAMES LAUGHLIN AWARD



WINNER, 2013 ISABELLA GARDNER POETRY AWARD



A PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "BEST BOOK OF 2013"





“These fierce, hip, heartbreaking love poems call out to a lover who can’t be lived with or without. They’re humorous, odd, and full of all the unreasonable truth of love. This book is the real thing.” —Publishers Weekly



The Los Angeles Times described Jillian Weise’s debut poetry collection as “a fearless dissection of the taboo and the hidden.” In her Isabella Gardner Poetry Award-winning second collection, Weise chronicles an affair with a man she names “Big Logos.” These poems throw into question sex, the law, identity, sentiment and power, shifting between lyric and narrative, hyper-realism and magical realism, fact and fiction.

Fanny Says

By: Nickole Brown

$16.00


An "unleashed love song" to her late grandmother, Nickole Brown's collection brings her brassy, bawdy, tough-as-new-rope grandmother to life. With hair teased to Jesus, mile-long false eyelashes, and a white Cadillac Eldorado with atomic-red leather seats, Fanny is not your typical granny rocking in a chair. Instead, think of a character that looks a lot like Eva Gabor in Green Acres, but darkened with a shadow of Flannery O'Connor. A cross-genre collection that reads like a novel, this book is both a collection of oral history and a lyrical and moving biography that wrestles with the complexities of the South, including poverty, racism, and domestic violence.



Have your own sassy, bawdy, tough-as-new-rope grandmother? Someone as unrelenting as Fanny that you don't want to forget? If so, share your grandmother's story on "The Bingo Hall" at www.nickolebrown.com.

Song

By: Brigit Pegeen Kelly

$12.50


Brigit Pegeen Kelly writes a lyrical, surreal poetry that flies toward the magical. Informed by a spiritual vision, her poems sweep us into new relationships, as the darkness that "doesn't come down, but rises up. . . . It gets the ankles first. It circles/ The ankles like flood water gradually filling/The basement of a house. Dark water full/ Of unnameable things."

The Hiddenness of the World Poems

By: Bertrand Mathieu

$12.00


"The title of Martin's book-La Dérobée du Monde-offers a clue, albeit an ambivalent one. I found his use of the word 'dérobée' virtually untranslatable, as difficult to render as some of the most abstruse words in Rimbaud's works which I'd translated years earlier. The word 'dérobée' is one of those French words fraught with shadings of meaning..." -Bertrand Mathieu from the introduction

Sasha is a powerful, grief-driven, deeply-felt collection that still manages to find the beautiful and the true, the little epiphanies that give our lives meaning no matter how ephemeral they might be.

To Keep Love Blurry

By: Craig Morgan Teicher

$16.00


Inspired by Robert Lowell’s Life Studies, Craig Morgan Teicher’s To Keep Love Blurry is an exploration of the charged and troubled spaces between intimately connected people: husbands and wives, parents and children, writers and readers. These poems include sonnets, villanelles, and long poems, as well as two poetic prose pieces, all meditating on the relationship between truth and art. As a son becomes a husband and then a father, Teicher expertly probes a life recast as poetry, with poems that long to leap into the lives of their subjects.

Revising the Storm

By: Geffrey Davis

$16.00


Winner of the 12th Annual A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize



This debut collection by Cave Canem fellow Geffrey Davis burrows under the surface of gender, addiction, recovery, clumsy love, bitterness, and faith. The tones explored—tender, comic, wry, tragic—interrogate male subjectivity and privilege, as they examine their “embarrassed desires” for familial connection, sexual love, compassion, and repair. Revising the Storm speaks to the sons and daughters affected by the drug/crack epidemic of the ’80s and addresses issues of masculinity and its importance in family.
