WHAT'S NEW AT
Broadstone Books has revised our submission
policy, so be sure to read it before sending us
your work. The most important change is that
we are no longer considering work from
authors outside of North America. This was a
hard decision based on our capacity, and no
reflection on the excellent literature being
written around the world.

A Mexican-American Memoir by
"Ed O'Casey’s Proximidad is a gorgeous, harrowing
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
effects of America's drug wars and trade pacts.

Third Monday in May
A Novel Concerning the Remarkable Events of
the First Kentucky Derby
Ross R. Moore
Part alternative historical fiction, part suspense
thriller, and entirely engaging and entertaining, in
this debut novel Abraham Lincoln survives to attend
the first Kentucky Derby. What awaits him there?
Steven R. Cope
"Steve Cope is a prophet for our time; we need to
hear his integrity of seeing and thinking, and his
compassionate respect for our planet and life."
— Harry Brown
These brief and eloquent essays from Kentucky's
current State Poet Laureate make a compelling case
for why poetry matters.
Instructions for Staging
Kristina Marie Darling &
"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
“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.”
How God Punishes
One of our most popular authors, this always brilliant
and breathtaking Bulgarian-American poet returns
with this award-winning collection, now available in
"In Richard Carr’s newest collection of poetry,
Fitzpatrick, Joyce’s Bloom—reincarnated as a
painter —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."
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
"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."
These often elegiac poems offer a meditation on
what is past and what is potential.
The latest collection from a master poet whose career
now spans six decades. Though each exquisitely well-
chosen word here bears the full weight of human
experience, Jonathan Greene's touch is so light and sure
that his poems float on the page, and in our minds upon
Gists, Orts, Shards
A Commonplace Book
Enlarged & Revised
"Greene's book is testimony to a mind ripened by a
lifetime of reading—but it's also a fascinating (and
sometimes startling) symposium open to all."
This latest addition to Greene's series collects his
previous two volumes and adds much new material.
Contrary Creek runs through Eastern Kentucky and
through our imagination in this new collection from a poet
known for verse informed by scholarship and infused with
