SHEILIA BUCY POTTER
Taking the Fifth and
Running with It
A Psychological Guide for the
Hard of Hearing and Blind

Poetry by
Joseph D. Reich

Reich is a poet and a social worker whose two
worlds collide in this scathing (and often hilarious)
diagnosis of the waking, walking psychosis of
modern America, offered up in verse as frenetic and
fragmented as his subject matter.  Call it gonzo, call
it neo-Beat, call it a "Howl" to harrow the hipsters,
this is
poetry deftly and dramatically suited to its
time.

Anecdotage
Everyday Epiphanies

Jonathan Greene

In these “memories and stories of a lifetime”
Greene shares tales of his own life and family as
well as those of many of his fellow authors, artists
and simply
characters whom he has encountered
over the decades.  Full of wry observations and
gentle humor, this part memoir, part commonplace
book of human foibles is a delightful celebration of
a life lived between nature and the curious world of
arts and letters.

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.

Aleph, broken
poems from my diaspora
Judith Kerman

            A little at a time
            I begin to read the old language,
            though it is still an iron grate,
            a bricked-up window.

The broken Aleph—first letter of the Hebrew
alphabet—represents the chasm between the author,
a secular Jew, and her cultural and religious
heritage.  The poems in this collection explore her
efforts to repair that breach and to find her footing
in the world, negotiating the path of history and
tradition while fully alive to the present. Though
her journey is personal, the reverberations of
the work are universal, doing what the best poetry
always does, permeating boundaries and opening
up a space for wonder to enter the world.

ruina montium
A poetry chapbook by
Jeremy Paden

"Both tender and clear-eyed, these poems are strong
enough to lift each one of us from the darkness."
                                     Ada Limón

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.

Two Men
Rowing Madly
Toward Infinity
Poetry by
William Reichard

"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."                                Joyce Stuphen

After the Storm
Poetry by
Thomas Zemsky

"There is a deft poetic intelligence at work in Tom
Zemsky’s poems, fluent in image and metaphor. The
pleasures these poems yield linger long."
                           
                Frederick Smock

Thomas Zemsky draws on a lifetime of observation
and over fifty years of writing poetry in this
expansive survey of themes as diverse as a
presidential inauguration and a letter from
Frankenstein’s creature, with a horse on a ladder
and a cast of other memorably improbable
characters along the way, all served up in language
that is delightfully quirky and often subversively
wry.

Iris In
Poetry by
Kryssa Schemmerling

"Iris In is an exciting book, multi-layered and savvy.
It deserves a large and enthusiastic audience."
                                           Colette Inez

"To link, without nostalgia, the literal and figurative
landscapes of old California, photography, movies,
America, nature, and the personal, demands
Schemmerling's skill with two vocabularies: film
and poetry.
"                        Estha Weiner


Images from classic films mingle mix with
impressions of the author's California childhood in
this impressive debut collection.
