Two New Releases
Anna Seghers's Crossing: A Love Story finds the acclaimed German novelist at the peak of her lyric and narrative abilities. This, the last of her major novels to be translated into English, should return Selghers to the attention of the English-speaking world.
Also coming soon, Peyton Burgess's hilarious and poignant The Frying Pans Aren't Sufficing, a stunning debut about which Yusef Komunyakaa says: "Personal and surreal, these poignant survival stories coax the reader into moments of shared feeling, into truth, reflection, and simple beauty."
Crossing Bryan Ferry and Other Poems
Through narrative persona poems, appropriated texts and updated remixes of canonized works, Crossing Bryan Ferry and Other Poems explores the destabilization of language and its effects on identity in an accelerated culture. While paying homage to marginalized people and fantastic places, this work strives to evoke empathy and recognition while illuminating the recesses of the splintered lyrical self.
