Like Kiana Davenport's Shark Dialogues , Drake's novel challenges traditional assumptions about race and sexuality, and demonstrates the way colonialism, violence, power and hope powerfully impact the experience of people of mixed race today.

A Walking Cliché Coins a Phrase

A Walking Cliché Coins a Phrase

By Chad Prevost “A Walking Cliche Coins a Phrase is an utterly unique book of poems. Despite the subtitle, this is a book of poems, filled with true wit (strange things go on in this man’s head!), strong music, a stone blind love (the only kind of love that matters) of language, and a wild, wild heart.” Thomas Lux, author of God Particles “The road to psychic wholeness, Chad Prevost asks, is to ‘bury oneself in sweetness like a bee making Heaven in a fallen pear?’ In these marvelously inventive prose poems, Prevost does just that, chronicling the journey of a man facing the false dichotomy...

Accidental Joy: a streak of poetry

Accidental Joy: a streak of poetry

By Judith Austin Mills With the sprawling celebration of Walt Whitman and the meditative concentration of Mary Oliver, Accidental Joy is more than a poetic monologue—it is a personal epic. It is private prayer and public performance in one. Sitting down to read it feels like you're taking in a good bottle of wine: the flavors, highlights, and notes are diverse and complex, but they nonetheless create a unified flavor, a cohesive and balanced whole. — Allyson Whipple , author of We're Smaller Than We Think We Are Judith Austin Mills is a poet who wins poetry contests, some with very formal...

Alabama Light & Power Co: The Chalice of Bedlam

Alabama Light & Power Co: The Chalice of Bedlam

By Lynn Strongin Most of the time, as a poet, Lynn Strongin is rather up in the abstract clouds as a poet. Magnificent, but off in the world of decipherable beauty that isn't all that easy to decipher. But here in Alabama Light & Power Co we have a totally different Strongin, accessible, emotional, touching, super-realistic, dealing with her own paralysis, with the world around her, all on an everyday basis so you really get inside the inside of everyone's feelings, pains, exaltations, ecstasies. You can't find anyone else on the writing scene today who can even come close to Strongin's...
