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.

Cradle Book

By: Craig Morgan Teicher

$14.00


Timeless yet timely, hopeful with a dark underbelly, the fables and stories in Cradle Book revive a tradition running from Aesop to W.S. Merwin. With a poet’s mastery, Teicher creates strange worlds populated by animals fated for disaster and people who interact with them, or simply act like them, including a very sad boy who wishes he had been raised by wolves. There are also a handful of badly-behaving Gods, a talking tree, and a shape-shifting room.

By: G. C. Waldrep, John Gallaher

The Winged Seed: A Remembrance

By: Li-Young Lee

$16.00


With a new Foreword by the author and never-before-seen photographs of the author's family and childhood



In lyrical prose, Li-Young Lee’s extraordinary story begins in the 1950s when his parents fled China’s political turmoil for Indonesia. Along with many other Chinese members of the population, his family was persecuted under President Sukarno. Falsely accused and charged for crimes against the state, his father spent a year and a half in jail as a political prisoner, half of that time in a leper colony. While his entire family was being transported to a prison colony, they escaped and fled to Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, and back to Hong Kong, where his father rose to prominence as an evangelical preacher. In 1962, the family sought asylum in the United States where his father became a Presbyterian minister. This reissued edition of acclaimed poet Li-Young Lee’s heart-wrenching memoir includes a new Foreword by the author and never-before-seen photographs of the author’s family and childhood.

Copia

By: Erika Meitner

$16.00


Erika Meitner's fourth book grapples with the widespread implications of commercialism and over-consumption, particularly in exurban America. Documentary poems originally commissioned by Virginia Quarterly Review examine the now-bankrupt city of Detroit, once the thriving heart of the American Dream. Meitner probes the hulking ruins of office buildings, tract housing, superstores, construction sites, and freeways--exposing a vacuous world of decay and abandonment--while holding out hope for re-birth from ashes.
