Poems by
Christopher T. Keaveney

make me sit up and feel a
wow moment, an idea, a
poetic line or a usage of words that says to me this poet
is unique. Christopher Keaveney is that kind of poet."
                           — Zvi A. Sesling

memoir of identity and place....
O'Casey shows us
how fragile and dread-edged even the fiercest of
our loves can be.
This is a wondrous first book."  
                              — Alex Lemon

A hybrid of verse and memoir and journalism by an
author whose life and words bridge two worlds, this is
essential poetry of documentary witness of the horrific

Instructions for Staging
Poetry by
Kristina Marie Darling &
Carol Guess

"Weaving the jargon of real estate with the language
of divorce, Kristina Marie Darling and Carol Guess
create a book that is equal parts black humor and
human insight....
 Instructions for Staging shows us
the dynamism of their collaboration:  inventive and
bittersweet, resulting in a darkly playful read.
                                  —Robin F. Brox

The real estate practice of "home staging" becomes
a metaphor for the illusions, and dissolution, of
marriage, and more broadly, of modern life in
A Hagiography of Heaven
and Vicinity
Poetry by
Michael Joyce

Hagiography of Heaven includes some of the best
writing I have read this year, and moreover it is wise,
offering up an extraordinarily attentive and
reassuring poetry celebrating the familiarity and
strangeness of the ordinary where the ordinary
includes the literary and the heavenly.”  
                                            —Keith Tuma
How God Punishes

Poetry by
Richard Carr

In Richard Carr’s newest collection of poetry,
Fitzpatrick, Joyce’s Bloom—reincarnated as a
ainter —is presented, for our amusement and,
perhaps, our edification, through the lens of his
bartender, his 'bastard' of a drinking buddy, his wife,
and, most
clearly perhaps, his paintings themselves."
                          —George Looney

In masterful narrative verse, Richard Carr uses
multiple voices and perspectives to portray his title
character, the artist Fitzpatrick, glimpsed here only
through others and his work.
The Day You Miss Your Exit
Poetry by
Jacqueline Berger

"Whatever light is shining, was shining, in our lives,
Jacqueline Berger preserves and cherishes in these
brilliant new poems.... Memory is the instrument and
these poems sing with detail and emotional truth and
save us all."
                            —Christopher Buckley

These often elegiac poems offer a meditation on
what is past and what is potential.
