"Danez Smith's is a voice we need . . . . This is a mighty work and a tremendous offering." (Tracy K. Smith)
Visionary and revelatory, intimate and unguarded, the collected works of Frank Bidart are a radical confrontation with human nature, a conflict eternally renewed and reframed, restless line by restless line.
A vividly rendered collection tracing the aftermath of a breakdown and the struggle to reconnect with the realities of daily life.
Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award, Laura Kasischke unapologetically explores the dark and humorous realities of our lives.
This award-winning debut interrogates the fragile, inherited ways of approaching love and family from Asian American, immigrant, and queer perspectives.
