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 Sunken Lightship

By: Peter Makuck

$18.00


"Peter Makuck's poems derive, as most poems do, from the sharings and losings of human relations--but with a brightening: these deep dispositions work out their ways in real places of land features, climates, life forms, physical actions. Particular grist informs Makuck's vision and confirms his imagination's grasp." - A.R. Ammons

The Siege (L'Assedio)

By: Ljuba Merlina Bortolani

$22.00


Written when Ms. Bortolani was fifteen years old, The Siege (L’Assedio) is driven by a brazen, exuberant voice and linguistic acrobatics not unlike that of the most celebrated European teen prodigy poet—Arthur Rimbaud.

The Era of Not Quite

By: Douglas Watson

$14.00


Douglas Watson's debut story collection is chock-a-block with deaths, births, sea and land voyages, excursions to the library, philosophical asides, and things like wolves. People fall in and out of love, walk in and out of buildings, take two steps forward and two steps back. Futility is a theme of the book, but so is the necessity of trying.



From "Against Specificity":



The trouble: You want Thing A but are stuck with Thing B.

The Chair

By: Richard Garcia

narrative spins effortlessly out of language. A core of autobiography grounds these poems that are accessible, highly-imaginative, and rife with surprises. Finely-spun with wit, intelligence, and heart, these poems teach us to dream with eyes wide open.

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

By: Aimee Parkison
