300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
From Albert Goldbarth, the only poet to have twice won the National Book Critics Circle Award, comes Selfish, an extraordinary collection that explores celebrity culture, Charles Darwin, sex shops, science fiction, ancient cave art, comic books, and the fates of many family and friends. In The Emperor of Water Clocks Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa brings his jazz-inflected rhythms and his effortlessly surreal images to this celebration of natural beauty and of love. Poet Mary Jo Bang’s collection, The Last Two Seconds, captures the difficulties inherent in being human in the twenty-first century. The award-winning poet Mark Doty finds transcendence in the mundane and the grievous in Deep Lane: Poems.
