88 MAPS

by Rob Carney

88 MAPS is about the places, times, and wildness we should say yes to, and it’s about looking at all our real and figurative culs-de-sac and saying no. It’s a collection of praise songs, sonnets, prose poems, challenges to rampant development, narratives commemorating the last best places, and 21st century fables. That formal variety is combined with a singular vision and voice. The poems here can’t be mistaken for anyone else’s, the same way Tom Waits can’t be confused with some other singer, and gumbo—at least done right like it is in South Louisiana—doesn’t taste like just another soup.

A Change of Maps

by Carolyne Wright

Carolyne Wright explores in poetry what it means to live in different worlds, and probes with great sensitivity what it means to live in two or more different worlds at the same time . . . Wright writes with passion, eloquence, and clear moral perspective.

—Andrew Hudgins

A FIELD OF FOUNDLINGS: Selected Poems of Iryna Starovoyt

by Iryna Starovoyt • Translated from Ukrainian by Grace Mahoney

In A Field of Foundlings, Iryna Starovoyt investigates Ukraine’s suppressed generational memory of the 20th century and the new context of its retelling in Eastern Europe.

A Filament Burns in Blue Degrees

by Kendra Tanacea

Kendra Tanacea’s A Filament Burns in Blue Degrees is a glorious paean to perseverance in the face of life’s passages. Sparse, irreverent, and ardent, these poems, with all of their poignant humor and fervid intelligence, are rooted in a belief that artful language heals and we survive because of a steady reaffirmation of the powers of song.

—Major Jackson

All the Wrong Places

by Molly Giles

Winner of the Spokane Prize for Short Fiction, Molly Giles’ nineteen strange, tightly woven tales merge the mythic and the modern with dark humor and deep humanity.

Amnesty Muse

by Doren Robbins

A poet examines his life: what he’s been dealt, what he’s chosen, the workings of history with personal griefs and delights, “amnesty” of an uneasy coming-to-terms with self and others, being his muse. There’s a macabre wit, masculine vulnerability, and soul-conflict in the best of these poems, adding up to a very strong book.

—Adrienne Rich

As Is

by Sheryl Noethe

As Is tells the heroic story: loss, struggle, victory, and how god is milk and throat at once, and rock and child, and how the future leaks outlandishly into the present. That the reason humans exist (now didn’t you ever want to know that?), the reason for humans is that we can love. It’s our job because that’s what we were built to do. Join the Divine.

At the Edge of the Western Wave

by Carlos Reyes

This collection catches perfectly that special sense of rural Ireland which might be described as mixture of raw satirical humour, tragedy, and a kind of yearning for love and connection in a society that feels a constant tension between materialism and spirituality. At the Edge of the Western Wave is a big and sweeping enough collection to be able to accomodate these themes and their nuances . . .

Balefire

by Shann Ray

A celebration of the intricacies of love. Shann Ray’s Balefire is visionary—a powerful and moving visit to the places that haunt us.

—Debra Magpie Earling, Perma Red
