By: Louis Simpson

"The poetry of Louis Simpson seems to me extraordinarily beautiful and complex ... it demonstrates an engagement with the vicissitudes and antinomies of American life in the sixties and seventies that is equal to the best we have, and ... may even possess a greater, quieter power of staying because it is extremely accessible.

The Owner of the House

By: Louis Simpson

$19.95

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.
