Triple Crown Sonnets
Jeffrey Cyphers Wright
THIS IS A GREAT BOOK! Jeff Wright has become the first human being to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont. Take that, Equines! He did it the poet’s way—he crowned himself with sonnets, and gifted them to the world. Reciprocate his generosity by reading with your whole body. And they’re off!
Both Sides Of The Niger
For many years I have admired the restless and generously spirited poems of Andrew Kaufman. He really does go to both sides of the Niger--both literally and metaphorically. This is not only a splendid book but it's also splendid journey!
Ashes Rain Down
Jaw-droppingly brilliant and downright transcendent.
The Ivory Hour
Laynie Browne channels the energy of Mirabai in a book that is both charred and luminous. Her writing is a gift of abrasion, making the body of the reader a portal too.
Black Mountain Days
Michael Rumaker’s finely detailed, evocative memoir puts personal flesh on Black Mountain College’s historical bones.
Song of Songs of Solomon:
A Queer Translation
The narrative seems to operate simultaneously as a spiritual and physical pilgrimage.

j/j hastain & t thilleman
Struggling to find a mythos to convey our early twenty-first-century malaise, hastain and thilleman approximate a “diapason,” a “fixed standard of pitch,” a “compass of a voice.”

What I love most about Karen Lillis’ writing is it makes me want to be a writer. We need more writers excited about the world than people who neuter it.
Katherine Hastings is a poet whose words embody light; she is the ambassador of luminescence to American poetry today.

Le Merde (Livres du Mort)
Remains to be Seen
Probably everyone who reads poetry year after year knows of a favorite poet whose reputation should be larger than it is, and my candidate for that position is Halvard Johnson.
The Number of Missing
Berlin’s book is shattering, real, first-person history, made intimate by a narrator forced to stare at himself against the hole of Ground Zero.
