NewPages Book Stand – August 2020

Stop by and visit the August Book Stand at NewPages. This month, you can check out five featured titles, as well as a selection of new and forthcoming books to add to your to-read list.

The poems in Elsewhere, That Small by Monica Berlin are “intimate, contemplative, seeking out the smallest folds of language,” and urge readers to really listen to what they’re taking in.

The Exquisite Triumph of Wormboy by James Kochalka and Sydney Lea follow the exploits of a worm who embarks on an adventure of rescue.

In The History of Our Vagrancies by Jason Irwin, readers can find “comfort, companionship, longing, and then suddenly an acute sorrow that somehow makes us want more of the whole tragic beautiful thing.”

Jon Boilard’s Junk City is set in San Francisco, following characters that roam in a shadowy world but, from time to time, find slivers of light.

The World I Leave You: Asian American Poets on Faith & Spirit edited by Leah Silvieus & Lee Herrick spotlight 62 poets of Asian descent. These poets create a varied and nuanced portrait of today’s Asian American poets and their spiritual engagements.
