83 Contemporary American Poets
Photographs by John Sarsgard

volume celebrates the special place of poets and
poetry in America's literary life.

The Butterfly's Choice
"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-

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.
The Color of Music,
the Shape of Sound:
Melanie Sunbeam Smith's
