Marie Carter , The Trapeze Diaries
“Marie Carter’s The Trapeze Diaries is a tour de force performance—this is a writer transforming the things of daily life, the fears and struggles and unexpected glories, into weightless prose. Carter gets at the question we’re all trying to get at in one way or another: how, in this heavy world, against our own mortality and terror, can we break loose and fly? How can we get around the troubles in our own hearts and make our way toward joy? Carter finds the answer, both metaphorically and physically.”—Maria Dahvana Headley, author of The Year of Yes

Michael Cirelli, Lobster with Ol' Dirty Bastard
“Michael Cirelli has invented his own electric school of lyric, stamping an unflinching signature on soul-infused stanzas that are alternately tender, tough, revelatory and always, alwaays unapologetic. What's most amazing is that he possesses a voice that doesn't seem to have occurred before—its definitive drum works its way into your head and stays there, making you crave more of the infectious music he drops, exactly the way he drops it. Damn.” - Patricia Smith

William Corbett, The Whalen Poem
I spent the summer of 2007 reading the galleys of Philip Whalen's Collected Poems. I was in Vermont and had the leisure to read slowly, ten or so pages a day.

Rafael Pérez Estrada translated into English by Steven Stewart, Devoured by the Moon
Before his death in 2000, Rafael Pérez Estrada was one of contemporary Spain’s most imaginative and unique writers. A several-time finalist for Spain’s Premio Nacional de Literatura, he published over forty books in his lifetime. He created a body of work that often defies classification, crafting fantastic realities from myth, fable, and his own Mediterranean surroundings. He creates his own world which can be said to be vaguely rooted in ours, eliciting comparisons to Borges and Calvino. This bi-lingual selection of his work in Spanish with facing translations into English by Steven J. Stewart present his work in all its richness.
