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 shoegaze book




"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."

Mark Mordue, author, Dastgah, Diary of a Head Trip, Darlinghurst Funeral Rites

"A marvelous stretch of work."

Matthew Stadler, author, The Dissolution of Nicholas Dee, Chloe Jarren's La Cucuracha, Where We Live Now

"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

   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 Chronology of Water and The Book of Joan

   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

"Valenzuela's work is not precious. Jonathan Tittler's translation is syntactically beautiful and las palabras se contruyen para devestar...."
