PANTHEON

by Philip Memmer

Philip Memmer’s Pantheon is a collection of dramatic monologues written from the perspectives of imaginary gods. But these are not the usual mythological suspects: the voices here include such unlikely deities as the God of Error, the God of Skunks, the God of Shrugs, and the God of Lullabies. Whether their concerns are profound or ridiculous, and whether they speak with love or disdain, they share one thing in common: the faithful, mortal human to whom they speak.

Pomegranate, Sister of the Heart

by Carlos Reyes

On the heels of The Book of Shadows; New and Selected Poems (Lost Horse Press, 2009) comes Pomegranate, Sister of the Heart. In his fifth full-length collection, poet and translator Carlos Reyes offers a lyrical and sometimes surreal vision of our world. The edgy tone of this collection represents a departure from his earlier work, but the omnibus quality of this book offers something for everyone.

POST & RAIL

by Erica Funkhouser

Winner of the Idaho Prize for Poetry 2017, Eric Funkhouser’s POST & RAIL “is both modest and immensely ambitious.”

PRAY TO THE EMPTY WELLS

by poems by Iryna Shuvalova • translated by Olena Jennings •

From one of Ukraine’s most distinct female voices in poetry, Pray to the Empty Wells is Iryna Shuvalova’s first book-length collection of poems in English.

RADIATION KING

by Jason Gray

Ten years in the making, Radiation King, the second full-length collection by poet Jason Gray, takes us to the beginning and the possible futures of the atomic world we created at the start of the 20th century. In a time when the Cold War has heated back up, his intense lyric poems engage a past filled with Civil Defense and radioactive quack cures, and a future that could bring a radioactive wasteland or limitless energy. Gray’s poems explore the world from the smallest atom of hydrogen to the giant Pillars of Creation in the Eagle Nebula, and find the only thing that will save us is love for one another.

Raising Lilly Ledbetter: Women Poets Occupy the Workspace

Edited by Carolyne Wright, M.L. Lyons, Eugenia Toledo

Opening Raising Lilly Ledbetter, we enter a world that has been, like women’s work and working women historically, silenced or trivialized (or both). The poems gathered in Raising Lilly Ledbetter counter all that. They break the cultural remainders (reminders) of that silencing by speaking loud and clear. They bear witness to the meaning of women’s lived experiences of work. They are large and contain multitudes. They prove in themselves that the stories they memorialize must not only be told, but also excavated, put in conversation with each other, and heard, for without the poetry, the stories will be forgotten, their information and wisdom lost to us. This beautiful anthology, with its marvelous and rich array of poems, performs a great service to us all, and the editors are to be thanked for their hard (and joyous) work and celebrated for their vision.

RECEIPT

by poems by Carl Adamshick, figures by Andy Buck

Receipt is a collaboration between artist Andy Buck and Carl Adamshick. It is a book that loves names and dialog. Andy’s carved, wooden figures alongside Carl’s poems begin a conversation about friendships and their sometimes peculiar behavior.

Retreats & Recognitions

by Grace Bauer

Grace Bauer has a rare power: whether it is the appearance of Mormon missionaries at her door or finding an answer to an eight year old boy’s question, “What’s Nebraska?” she transforms life into perfect poems. In this collection, her poems connect to the world through personal history (days spent in Nebraska, New Orleans, and Greece) and popular culture (Blanche Dubois, Norma Jean Baker and Dorothy, formerly of Oz, all make guest appearances) in ways that combine the comic and the elegiac. . . .

Rust Fish

by Maya Jewell Zeller

Maya Jewell Zeller’s first collection of poems chronicles a speaker’s tentative relationship with humans versus her comfortable loyalty to the natural/animal world. Through the experiences of the young woman narrator, the reader comes to understand a parallel between femininity and nature, especially as each are exploited by humankind. The conceit of the amorphous rust fish extends throughout the manuscript in a series of five title poems, each in some way exemplifying the malleability of life, as well as in other poems throughout the series which allude to decomposition and cycles of birth and death, along with myriad related themes.

Sailing Away

by Richard Morgan

The moment you think you see where Sailing Away is going to take you, I promise: you don’t. These deft, sometimes daft, consistently darksome stories are as impossible to outguess and bewilderingly interesting to ride as the postmodern Pacific that inspires them.

—David James Duncan, author of The Brothers K and The River Why
