The Country Where Everyone’s Name Is Fear: Selected Poems


The Little Spokane

by Tom I. Davis

Tom Davis is the land he writes of: Davis has broken himself against basalt and coast from Tacoma to Yakima and beyond—here, in these tight poems, a great and original voice delivers us a poetry as sparse, hard, clear, and original as himself.

—Sebastian Lockwood

The Loves and Wars of Relative Scale

by Albert Goldbarth

True to its title, The Loves and Wars of Relative Scale is a community of poems that address ideas of perspective, of proximity—of what happens when the large-scale universe collides with our human-scale joys and disasters.

The New Hand

by Sean Gillihan

Sean Gillihan is a vivid and accurate, true new voice in the American West. He’s been down the roads, worked the crops, fed the cattle—he knows the drills, and dignifies each quiet thing he talks about.

—William Kittredge


by David Axelrod

The poems in David Axelrod’s eighth collection journey across the upper Rhine and Alps to contemporary West Jerusalem and far northern Europe, asking, “Where does the joy come from?”

The Radium Watch Dial Painters

by D.S. Butterworth

The Radium Watch Dial Painters is a book of sheer power and range, poems that burn in brilliant flashes and with searing luminescence. There are great stories in here, flurries of fresh images and graceful turns of music and wit. Above all, you find Dan Butterworth’s pitch-perfect gift for language, his acrobatic intelligence, his fierce decency. I loved this book.

—Jess Walter, author of The Zero, Citizen Vince, and Beautiful Ruins

The River People

by Polly Buckingham

The poems in The River People, Polly Buckingham’s debut collection, move through dream landscapes and natural landscapes exploring connection and loss, abundance and degradation, the personal and the political.

The Storehouses of the Snow

by Philip Memmer

Like the biblical tales these poems often echo, Philip Memmer’s The Storehouses of the Snow is a book of fire and hope, of light and blood. Consisting of three different kinds of poems—psalms, parables and dreams—this collection continues the search for meaning he began in his earlier books. The inventiveness with which Memmer revisits these age-old forms surprises and entertains, while also subtly reinforcing the impossibility of certainty: in these pages, the kingdom of heaven might be a garden or a mass grave; the god who calls it home is by turns an absent business partner, a burning house, the poet’s own new-born child. And the narrator’s own position on his subject bears a similar honest fluidity . . . sometimes the cynic, sometimes the seeker, Memmer brings his timeless questions firmly into the present.

The Voluptuary

by Paulann Petersen

Permeated with vision and spirit and the luck of “a thousand green say-so’s,” Paulann Petersen, nee Paulann Whitman, lives the life poetry invites us to find—deftly weaving tendrils of earth and mind into a precisely elegant terrain. These poems are large and loving enough for everyone to feel at home in.

The Way Summer Ends

by Thomas Mitchell

“Thomas Mitchell’s first collection of poems is a work which celebrates the quotidian . . .”


by Stan Sanvel Rubin

There.Here. concerns our ideals versus our realities and the conflicted space between. The book’s driving purpose is to rediscover the personal in the face of impersonal forces, including war. These are lyric poems with a twist. The “I” and “you” are not closed positions; they represent “attitudes” rather than fixed points of view. Poems and sequences amplify each other, with the goal of rehumanizing the rhetoric by which we understand our lives. This is a post-postmodern collection.
