Anglophone Poems from Around the World

Anthology edited by Catherine Barnett & Tiphanie Yanique

Tupelo Press, April 2014

ISBN-13: 978-1-936797-40-0

Paperback: 390pp; $19.95

In this unprecedented anthology, acclaimed poets from around the world select poems from their countries of origin to share with new readers, who will find idiosyncrasy, eloquence, and urgency. Here are poems that are all in English but spring from widely varied voices, histories, and geographies.

Bright Shards of Someplace Else coverBright Shards of Someplace Else

Fiction by Monica McFawn

University of Georgia Press, September 2014

ISBN-13: 978-0-8203-4687-8

Paperback: 164pp; $24.95

In the eleven kaleidoscopic stories that make up Bright Shards of Someplace Else, Monica McFawn traces the combustive, hilarious, and profound effects that occur when people misread the minds of others. The characters—an array of artists, scientists, songwriters, nannies, horse trainers, and poets—often try to pin down another's point of view, only to find that their own worldview is far from fixed.

Cold Type coverCold Type

Fiction by Harvey Araton

Cinco Puntos Press, July 2014

ISBN-13: 978-1-935955-71-9

Paperback: 271pp; $15.95

1996. "Cold type," aka computerized typesetting, is wreaking havoc among newspaper workers. Jamie is a reporter for the NYC Trib. Union workers go on strike. Jamie's father, a hardcore shop steward (unusual for a Jew in Irish-dominated unions) expects Jamie not to cross the picket line. But Jamie's unhappy wife leaves him, taking their son. He needs a job.

Repairable Men coverRepairable Men

Fiction by John Carr Walker

sunnyoutside, October 2014

ISBN-13: 978-1-934513-47-7

Paperback: 108pp; $13.00

Set in the new American West, the stories in Repairable Men look at the small towns and rural farms where families stay for generations, newcomers never quite feel at home, and expectation and judgment are country neighbors. Trapped by dead-end work, hostile relatives, and the troubling legacies of their forebears, John Carr Walker's characters are caught in the turmoil of seeking escape, forgiveness, and redemption.

Tax-Dollar Super Sonnet coverTax-Dollar Super Sonnet

Featuring Sarah Palin as Poet

Poetry by Nicole Mauro

Black Radish Books, August 2014

ISBN-13: 978-0-9850837-3-1

Paperback: 63pp; $15.00

Using text from 44 presidential speeches, lines from Emily Dickinson's books, and Sarah Palin's Going Rogue, Tax-Dollar Super Sonnet is a slim opus of American rhetoric re-structured into a delightfully absurd poetic.
