Sound Seekers: File Under Jazz





Keller's vivid feullitons prove the music is always with us, resurrecting, inexplicably present in distant earphones, as the universe arriving between piano notes. Sequel & companion to America the Beautiful, these surreal fictions about jazz (from America the Beautiful), appear en face in English, German, Croatian, Lithuanian, Bengali, Spanish, and Russian.

   America The Beautiful And Other Indictments





"Welcome to Christoph Keller's America the Beautiful And Other Indictments, whose title is as misleading as its aperçus are biting original. Like pinpricks penetrating a dark veil, these glittering insights are arranged as cunningly as they are crafted, for a constellation greater than the sum of its shards."

   The Words I Own




"Michael Shay's The Words I Own is captivating. The poems are by turns playful and heartbreaking, the manner uncluttered, generous in its amicable approach to the reader. His writing carries the resonance of a life with which most readers will identify. The Words I Own, among its many virtues, is a good read."

   Darlinghurst Funeral Rites




"Few writers around are offering us journeys as haunting, evocative and distinct as Mark Mordue. Here is the rare poet not afraid of going his own way, regardless of fashion and convention."

   I'm Afraid Of Americans




"M. F. McAuliffe's writing is an invitation to reconsider the in-between moments, the sometimes quiet moments I too often leave uninvestigated. And once there, once I'm in her stories, the challenges and surprises and heartbreaks and joys that live in these moments are revealed by a remarkable storyteller. McAuliffe's wit and humor and heart fill the stories that make up I'm Afraid of Americans and Other Stories, and I will be revisiting them from now on."

Matthew Robinson, author, The Horse Latitudes

   The Jesus He Deserved




"The Jesus He Deserved is about being a soldier. Three distinct voices speak for a generation about the new kind of war, trying to patch up the aftermath of modern warfare—and the old kind fought alone when soldiers return home. This book is going to live in my backpack, pages curled and worn, to be brought out when the ache of being human needs some company, when I need to soldier on."

   The Crucifixes & Other Friday Poems




"'Only my contradictions hold me upright,' claims one of the poems in this ferociously lucid and often funny new volume by M.F. McAuliffe. On the one hand it batters us with Lear-like bleak assertions which it goes on to illustrate, most impressively, in the series of poems retelling the Orpheus myth. On the other hand, the very rhythm, almost reassuring, of other aphoristic conclusions suggests an admiration, despite everything, for the world it so passionately curses and condemns."

   Seattle




"A disillusioned photographer works as a photo librarian. The writing parallels old style photography: film processed until a latent image becomes visible. The story emerges with the same chemical intensity."

   Breakfast: 43 Poems




"Coleman Stevenson's poems defy their own longing by making a want's darkest recesses glow, turning language fresh as a new love feels, familiar, flaming, and true."

Brian Foley, author, The Constitution, editor, Brave Men Press

"Coleman Stevenson's Breakfast will jolt you awake, buzzing and crackling with a febrile, plain-spoken intensity."

John Beer, author, Lucinda, The Waste Land and Other Poems

   The Art of Waking Up




"Brenda Taulbee's poems give my spine reverb, like poetry is meant to, like only poetry that matters, can."

Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Chronology of Water and The Book of Joan

"Her poems are told like a secret, filled with yearning: ephemeral and visceral."

Amy Temple Harper, author of Cramped Uptown

   A White Concrete Day



"There is a quietness about Doug Spangle's voice that allows you not to realize how much he has to say (so quietly), what superb art his craft conceals (to the point of invisibility), how large is the experience he offers the reader.

This collection accumulates the power, skill, passion and intelligence of his poetry to the point where I wonder, is anybody writing better than this?"

Ursula K. Le Guin, author of The Earthsea Trilogy, The Hainish novels and Lavinia

   Deathcats (El Gato Eficaz)



"Luisa Valenzuela is the heiress of Latin American fiction. She wears an opulent, baroque crown, but her feet are naked."

Carlos Fuentes, author, Aura, The Old Gringo

"Luisa Valenzuela's books are our present, but they also contain much of our future."

Julio Cortazar, author, Hopscotch

"Before Kathy Acker, before Patti Smith, before Angela Carter, there was & still is Luisa Valenzuela. Deathcats is a prescient fever dream against the new millennium, a take no prisoners satire, a sardonic after midnight liturgy."

Richard Nash, former publishing editor, Soft Skull

ISBN: 978-1-93566-234-1
