Return of the Web Roundup

If you follow our Twitter, you're probably up on all the exciting web coverage for some of our recent titles. But the internet is a big (and often cluttered) place, so it's possible that you may have missed a tidbit or two. Fear not, we are here to catch you up!


Micro-Review of Brian Foley's The Constitution over at Publishers Weekly.

"[Foley's] minimalism is fascinating in its ability to tonally blur the lines between a redacted version of America's most sacred text and the earnest last breath of a man with a lot of miles on him."

Review of (and Excerpts from) The Constitution on Rob McLennan's blog

"Foley does work to question what we might take for granted, as even his lines unsettle, shifting an appearance of sentences that break down into phrases that collide and accumulate, forcing connections that might otherwise remained impossible in such a short space."

Micro-Review of Zach Savich's Century Swept Brutal in Publishers Weekly.

"One gets the feeling that Savich's lyric 'I' lives with one foot in a dream world, the other stuck amidst the repetitions and signs of our day."

PEN featured four poems from The Privacy Policy Anthology as part of their week-long feature on surveillance


Thomas Ross reviews Zach Schomburg's The Book of Joshua in The Portland Mercury

"The feat of The Book of Joshua is to create a world by repetition: images become motifs, then symbols, and finally, reality."

Micro-Review of Aase Berg's Dark Matter in American Microreviews and Interviews

"Berg’s prose presents the reader with a relentless narrative that does not seek to comfort; rather, it seeks to create something from nothing, like a creature dragging itself from the darkness."

The Rumpus reviews DJ Dolack's Whittling a New Face in the Dark

"New York City is one of many anchors in the real that Dolack uses to remind that these non-narrative poems are specifically located, framed not only by time and space, but by particular moods and states of mind."

Ryo Yamaguchi's discourse on the intersection of poetry and HDR photography in Aase Berg's Dark Matter

"This is a visionary project, far more than a simple paean to the grotesque. It is poetry steeped in the Anthropocenic nightmare of industry and apocalypse. It is a book of love and its interlocutors. It is a work of art, a mimesis of the surreal whose efforts are palpable—imbued with the distinct feel of a work-in-progress that strives to, and succeeds at, attaining a new lexicon, a marriage of image and language into a hybrid materiality that, at its best, is exhilaratingly smart and wholly complete."

Zachary Schomburg, Joshua Marie Wilkinson, and Janaka Stucky get a shout-out in this Rolling Stone article on Third Man Records' forthcoming book, Language Lessons: Volume 1
