If Not, Winter: Fragments of Sappho

If Not, Winter: Fragments of Sappho

Sappho

$20.00 $18.60

4/27, chosen by Jessica Lanay: Carson’s lyric translation of Sappho’s fragments reminds me that poetry, even when atomized (by fire for instance), can still affect slivers of emotional and psychological intention. Through careful attention to Sappho’s scriptual DNA, I realize that those writerly ticks create a gravity in poems that communicate something when complete and torn apart.

Helium

Helium

Rudy Francisco

$16.00 $14.88

4/24, chosen by Cameron Barnett: This book is a one stop shop for anyone looking for a balance between poems that don’t take themselves too seriously, and seriously quality poetry. Francisco’s work is personal, confessional, and intimate. He endears the reader through his well-honed self-deprecating humor, as well as heavy hitting issues, such as in the poem “Complainers.” A real must-have book.

Cameron Barnett

$17.95 $16.69

4/2, chosen by Monica Prince (and Cameron is the featured poet of 4/24): On love, legacy, and latitude—this collection both scared and buoyed me. I finished it in one sitting, lying next to my beloved, and realized with strong certainty that if poetry like this exists in the world, then love and survival cannot be mutually exclusive.

Up Jump the Boogie (Reissue)

Up Jump the Boogie (Reissue)

John Murillo

$16.95 $15.76

4/21, chosen by Malcolm Friend: John Murillo’s Up Jump the Boogie is a masterclass in received forms. Murillo remixes forms such as the sestina, pantoum, ghazal, and more in ways that both pay tribute to those often overlooked in the U.S., as well as speak against the systems and structures that aim to silence us.

Cannibal

Cannibal

Safiya Sinclair

$17.95 $16.69

4/21, chosen by Malcolm Friend: Indicated in the book’s preface, Sinclair’s Cannibal is a reckoning with language, of the machinery that makes savage the Caribbean. Turning to Eve, to mermaids, and, of course, to Caliban, Sinclair pulls apart British and American imperialisms—and all their requisite tools—by pulling apart and devouring their very language.

Native Guard: Poems

Native Guard: Poems

Natasha Trethewey

$16.99 $15.80

4/21, chosen by Malcolm Friend: Form is on full display in Trethewey’s Pulitzer Prize winner, but never overtakes the poems. Form and content work masterfully together as Trethewey marks the South’s history and violences, calling on us to remember most notably in the book’s titular crown of sonnets dedicated to the 1st Louisiana Native Guard.

La Carreta Made A U-Turn

La Carreta Made A U-Turn

Tato Laviera

$7.00 $6.51

4/21, chosen by Malcolm Friend: Originally published in 1979 as Arte Público’s first book, Laviera’s debut weaves through Spanish, English, and Spanglish. Confronting figures such as Luis Muñoz Marín and René Marqués, and lauding Ismael Rivera and Jorge Brandon, Laviera’s verses claim a voice for Puerto Rico’s diaspora in New York, particularly its Black inhabitants.
