  • Sharks in the Rivers by Ada Limon
    Sharks in the Rivers (English, Paperback) Ada Limon

    The speaker in this extraordinary collection finds herself multiply dislocated: from her childhood in California, from her family's roots in Mexico, from a dying parent, from her prior self. The world is always in motion ? both toward and away from us?and it is also full of risk: from sharks unexpectedly lurking beneath estuarial rivers to the dangers of New York City, where, as Limón reminds us, even rats find themselves trapped by the garbage cans they've crawled into. In such a world, how should one proceed? Throughout Sharks in the Rivers, Limón suggests that we must cleave to the world as it ?keep[s] opening before us,? for, if we pay attention, we can be one with its complex, ephemeral, and beautiful strangeness. Loss is perpetual, and each person's mouth ?is the same / mouth as everyone's, all trying to say the same thing.? For Limón, it's the saying?individual and collective ? that transforms each of us into ?a wound overcome by wonder,? that allows ?the wind itself? to be our ?own wild whisper.?

  • Ordinary Wolves by Seth Kantner

    In the Altai Mountains of northern Mongolia, the nomadic Tuvan people's ancient way of life is colliding with the relentless influence of the modern world.

Then, his beloved grandmother dies, taking with her a profound link to the tribe's traditions and their connection to the land.

In despair, he begs the Heavenly Blue Sky for answers, but is met with only the mute wind.

  • Atlas by Katrina Vandenberg
    Atlas (English, Paperback) Katrina Vandenberg

    This debut collection of poetry by Katrina Vandenberg draws on different meanings of the title, carrying lines from one poem to the next and capturing the reverberations of events across time and place. One poem links an image of the poet's sister ? paused in housekeeping work ? to a maid in a Vermeer painting and a woman being "made over" on Oprah. Another compares an ex-lover's HIV to a 19th-century tulip epidemic. Quiet yet forthright, intimate yet generous, Vandenberg's poems map the intersections of history, art, love, death, and desire.
