Looking for Small Animals  

Caitlin Grace McDonnell

ISBN-13: 978-0985126872

 

“These poems listen. When I was reading them, awed by their loud silence, I heard a voice. Maybe the cry of a spotted angelanimal? "Looking for Small Animals" made me feel again how central the poem is to our existence. This book testifies to poetry’s awareness of immensity and terror, as well as the intricate intimate. Read Caitlin Grace McDonnell if you want to remember what autumn air feels like on your cheek: “... Buzzard’s breath ...’” –Spring Ulmer, Benjamin’s Spectacles.

Dit Huis is Bewoond

(This House is Inhabited)

Virginia Mayo

ISBN-13: 978-0985126834

A patina of a ghostliness imbues all abandoned towns with the same melancholy ache; whether they be a stereotypical cowboy western town in the American west or a once-thriving port town in Belgium.  Photographer Virginia Mayo's exquisitely composed and lush black and white images capture the decay and destruction of Doel, a port town in Belgium with a dwindling population. The authorities want to raze Doel to rebuild it into something shiny, industrial, and new; but in the meantime, it's a ghost town inhabited by a few lonely souls who stubbornly refuse to leave or to take comfortable apartments elsewhere: they are deeply rooted trees who will not be easily shifted to some other patch of earth. In English and Flemish.  $15.99
