THE BOOK OF JOSHUA BY ZACHARY SCHOMBURG

$19.95 - SHIPS JULY 15

$19.95 - SHIPS JULY 15

Zachary Schomburg has delivered his latest work from a dark place, where little machines repeat in a hollow voice, “this is only further proof of your badness.” Presented in a single narrative, The Book of Joshua is a sorry heart begged out of dreams, death & a horse's eye. It is an epic journey not only affirming that “there is a difference between sadness and suffering;” but that Schomburg is one of the most unusual poets writing today, pushing his work beyond our familiarity. These poems have a thirst for blood, but they don't yet know exactly what to do with their hands. The Book of Joshua calls out in hunger and loneliness, “I didn’t feel like living in anything not shaped like me anymore.”

The first printing is available exclusively as a deluxe hardcover, with white foil stamping on the front, back and spineand a blue stain trim along the edges of the page.

Drones, phone taps, NSA leaks, internet tracking—the headlines confirm it—we are living in a state of constant surveillance, and the idea of “the private sphere" is no longer what it used to be. Privacy Policy: The Anthology of Surveillance Poetics responds to this timely and crucial issue through the voices of over fifty contemporary poets, including Robert Pinsky, Jorie Graham, John Ashbery, Rae Armantrout, Nikki Giovanni, and D.A. Powell. Nature, ethics, technology, sex, the internet—no voyeuristic stone goes unturned in this expansive exploration of the individual, information, and how we are watched.
