Mark Cunningham: Body Language

Mark Cunningham's first full-length collection of prose poems, Body Language (TSky Press, 2008): "Cunningham tests what allusions, anecdotes, punch lines you know, be they liturgical, canonical, numerical, numerological, historical, mystical, magical, simple, or other.... It’s funny, sad and serious. Ultimately, reflective.... Impressive.... Body Language is a great choose-your-own adventure. There’s something for us all. And that’s fun." (THE ADIRONDACK REVIEW); "Always thought-provoking, always enjoyable and unexpected, the combination of topics of math, language and symbolism via the alphabet and the body as a complex system, turns out to be an appropriate, engaging compendium." (PRICK OF THE SPINDLE)

Noah Eli Gordon & Joshua Marie Wilkinson: Figures for a Darkroom Voice

Noah Eli Gordon & Joshua Marie Wilkinson passed a notebook back and forth, creating and trading poems and prose-poems. Then they handed these poems to artist Noah Saterstrom. This produced Figures for a Darkroom Voice (2007): "This book glitters" (TOMAŽ ŠALAMUN); "their voice comes across not as a warning, but as an ominous knell" (INTERIM); "These aren't just two guys with three names each; these are two of the poets to watch in the next generation" (POWELL'S STAFF PICK)

Max Winter: The Pictures

Max Winter's first poetry collection, The Pictures, from Tarpaulin Sky Press: "A long-awaited debut by a promising younger poet" (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY); "Inherently fun" (BOOKSLUT); "subtle, thought-provoking" (OPEN LETTERS); "very much worth reading" (OCTOPUS MAGAZINE)

Jenny Boully: [one love affair]*

Jenny Boully's one love affair (Tarpaulin Sky Press, 2006) meditates on mud daubers, Duras, and the deaths of mentally ill and drug-addicted lovers, blurring fiction, essay, and memoir in an extended prose poem that is as much a study of how we read as it is a treatise on the language of love affairs: a language of hidden messages, coded words, cryptic gestures, and suspicion: "I highly recommend it, especially if you’re looking for a way into the “trans-genre” of prose poetry." (OPEN LETTERS MONTHLY); "Boully’s sentences are a joy in and of themselves" (RATTLE); "A genre-bending back-pocket book.... Gritty and intellectual ... addictive and soothing ... fitting for just about anyone’s bookshelf.... You’re reading the book for second, third, and fourth time." (COLDFRONT)
