The Butterfly's Choice
Poetry by
Joanna Kurowska

"The best book of poetry I've read in a long time."
Gloria Mindock, editor, Červená Barva Press

Informed by the poet's immigrant experience of shifting
between homelands and languages, and underpinned by
her exploration of gnosticism, these are works of clear-
eyed observation and studied contemplation.
To Banquet with the Ethiopians
A Memoir of Life before the Alphabet
Poetry by
Philip Brady  

"I don’t know anyone with Philip Brady’s profound
sense of his work’s embeddedness in history, its origins
in the body, its realization of community. Long live the
Ethiopians!       —H.L.Hix, author of
Chromatic and
                         
First Fire, Then Birds

Poised between myth and time, this unique verse
memoir blends Homer’s discovery the alphabet with a
man’s recovery from near death and a boy’s struggle to
see the adult world through the prism of an ancient epic.
Taking the Fifth
and Running with It
A Psychological Guide for the
Hard of Hearing and Blind
Poetry by
Joseph D. Reich  

Reich's "experimental, empirical approach to evaluating
his culture's impressions is one of raw, unwavering
critical observations everyone needs to hear.”
                 Kat Lahr, Thought Collection Publishing


Poet and social worker Joseph Reich diagnoses the
waking, walking psychosis of modern America in verse
as frenetic and fragmented as his subject matter.  This is
poetry deftly and dramatically suited to its time.
Anecdotage
Everyday Epiphanies
Jonathan Greene

"There is a deep kindness and much wisdom in these tales
rife with uncanny coincidences and connections, as if we
are all part of Jonathan's world, and he is a part of ours."
   Fred Waitzen, author of
Searching for Bobby Fisher

Part memoir, part tales of the authors, artists, eccentrics
and just plain folk who have crossed Jonathan Greene's
path, these "memories and stories of a lifetime" will delight
and inform all who know Greene primarily from his poetry.
The Color of Music,
the Shape of Sound:
Melanie Sunbeam Smith's
Bird & Bela in B Series

Published to accompany the first ever
exhibition of the late artist's tribute to
the jazz composition by Don Sebesky,
this catalogue also celebrates her life
and the triumph of the human spirit.
Nothing Important
Happened Today

Poems by
Claudia Serea

"Readers are stepping into wry, lovely, and sometimes
even tragic territory when they embark upon Claudia
Serea’s new poetry collection."   
   Sharon Mesmer

From the streets of Bucharest during the bloody fall

of the Ceausescu regime through a bicycle ride in
Rutherford, New Jersey, the author shares her life on
the border of two lands, two languages, two cultures.
