New Poetry Books at Internationalist Books
Skipping around in the history here a little bit: last year I hooked up with Internationalist Books and Community Center right around the time of the first reading in January. They agreed to table books for all of last year's readings. This year the readings are moving into the bookstore itself, and part of that change also includes putting me on the volunteer staff to order/maintain their poetry section. It's a really great gig -- they let me order lots and lots of books (thanks, Matt, Ethan, & Kristina!) At any rate, we just got in a bunch of new books -- details below:
Lyn Hejinian -- My Life
Michael Palmer -- Notes for Echo Lake
Tomas Borge Martinez -- Have You Seen a Red Curtain in My Weary Chamber? trans. by Russel Bartley, Kent Johnson, & Sylvia Yoneda
Brenda Coultas -- Handmade Museum
Clarence Major -- Surfaces and Masks
Nathaniel Mackey -- Whatsaid Serif
Gloria Anzaldua -- Borderlands/La Frontera
Paul Verlaine -- Women/Men
Cole Swenson -- Goest
Sarah Manguso -- The Captain Lands in Paradise
Liz Waldner -- Self and Simulacra
If you're nearby, come check them out -- if you're far, email me, and I'll send what you like along.
ps: many of the above authors are on the wishlist for DC 2005/2006.....
