Obliterations--a collection of erasure poems that use The New York Times as their source texts--springs from that seemingly immediate process of personalizing news information. By...

  • Fever by Ron Koertge
    Fever (English, Paperback)

    "Ron Koertge can elevate the ordinary places of America??the backyard, the classroom, the mall??into scenes of mock-epic significance. He can just as easily lower the mythic worlds of Superman, Ozymandias and Cinderella to a level just a few inches above the bathetic. And he does all this with a charming combination of wit and empathy, satire and sweetness."...

In these poems Manuel crafts ambivalent spaces that seek steady reconciliation between past and present, self and family, faith and skepticism.

  • Suck on the Marrow by Camille Dungy

    Suck on the Marrow is a historical narrative, revolving around six main characters and set in mid-19th century Virginia and Philadelphia. The book traces the experiences of fugitive slaves, kidnapped Northern-born blacks, and free people of color, exploring the interdependence between plantation life and life in Northern and Southern American towns and illuminating the connections between the successes and difficulties of a wide range of Americans, free and slave, black and white, Northern and Southern. This neo-slave narrative treats the truths of lives touched by slavery with reverence but is not afraid to question the ways the old stories have too often been told. In addition to creating new stories, Suck on the Marrow develops new ways of telling those tales.
