Featured All the Rage by Rosamond S. King addresses everyday pleasure as well as the present condition of racism in the United States—a time marked both by recurring police violence and intense artistic creativity—from a variety of perspectives: being Black, an immigrant, a woman, and queer.
The fifth edition of The Book of Forms: A Handbook of Poetics by Lewis Turco is the go-to reference and guide for students, teachers, and critics filled with both common and rarely heard of forms and prosodies.
Benjamin S. Grossberg’s My Husband Would is at the crossroads of middle age, this book investigates love and family—both the families we are born into and those we create for ourselves.
The stories in Siamak Vossoughi’s A Sense of the Whole feature characters who refuse to believe that we are unconnected, refuse to not aspire to the notion of the human family across all manner of differences.
In The Shape of the Keyhole, Denise Bergman examines a community’s fear-driven silence and envisions the innocent woman’s days as she awaits her execution.
Women Speak: Volume Six edited by Kari Gunter-Seymour brings “offerings of survival and strength” of the fierce women of Appalachia.
