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