To Banquet with the Ethiopians
A Memoir of Life before the Alphabet
"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
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.
"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.
"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.
poems from my diaspora
"Questions about what is holy and what is human and
how cultural touchstones can help us make connections
across the boundaries that separate us from our deepest
selves are the subject that Kerman returns to again and
again, often with wonder, sometimes with regret, but
always with the confidence of a master poet."
A secular Jew's exploration of her cultural and religious
heritage illumines our common human search for
identity and rootedness.
A poetry chapbook by
"Both tender and clear-eyed, these poems are strong
enough to lift each one of us from the darkness."
The plight of "Los 33," the Chilean miners rescued after
sixty-nine days underground in the 2010 disaster, is
rendered here in exquisite verse that both pays tribute to
the individual miners and offers a meditation on our
relationship with our fragile world.
"In a book filled with doubles, doppelgangers, ghosts and
echoes, everything that was is always happening now (or
about to happen): 'the atoms of all that’s / been / all that /
is, / all that / will be / merge in the darkness.' Two Men
Rowing is the testimony of a man who, from the very
start, admits, 'I know things change' and still goes on to
describe the people and places he’s loved in such
moving detail that we love them too."
