“[B. H. Fairchild] is the American voice at its best: confident and conflicted, celebratory and melancholic.”—New York Times Gathering works from five of B. H. Fairchild's previous volumes stretching over thirty years, and adding twenty-six brilliant new poems, The Blue Buick showcases the career of a poet who represents "the American voice at its best: confident and conflicted, celebratory and melancholic" (New York Times). Fairchild's poetry covers a wide range, both geographically and intellectually, though it finds its center in the rural Midwest: in oilfields and dying small towns, in taverns, baseball fields, one-screen movie theaters, and skies "vast, mysterious, and bored." Ultimately, its cultural scope—where Mozart stands beside Patsy Cline, with Grunewald, Gödel, and Rothko only a subway ride from the Hollywood films of the 1950s—transcends region and decade to explore the relationship of memory to the imagination and the mysteries of time and being. And finally there is the character of Roy Eldridge Garcia, a machinist/poet/philosopher who sees in the landscape and silence of the high plains the held breath of the earth, "as if we haven't quite begun to exist. That coming into being still going on." From the machine work elevated to high art that is the subject of The Arrival of the Future (1985) to the despairing dreamers of Early Occult Memory Systems of the Lower Midwest (2002) to the panoramic, voice-driven structure of Usher (2009), Fairchild's work, "meaty, maximalist, driven by narrative, stakes out an American mythos" (David Ulin, Los Angeles Times). From "The Blue Buick:" A boy standing on a rig deck looks across the plains. A woman walks from a trailer to watch the setting sun. A man stands beside a lathe, lighting a cigar. Imagined or remembered, a girl in Normandy Sings across a sea, that something may remain.

In 1964, at age 21, Gerard Malanga was already the celebrity poet-photographer-Golden Boy of Andy Warhol's Factory; he'd starred in Warhol movies and his poetry had appeared in such prestigious literary magazines as Poetry, Art & Literature, Partisan Review and The New Yorker. This monumental retrospective volume includes all the major highlights of Malanga's previously published work, plus many new or rediscovered poems appearing here in book form for the first time. A poetic testament spanning almost four decades, No Respect firmly establishes Malanga's respect-worthy place in our recent literary history. From the glamorous, sophisticated mid-Sixties "Fashion Poems" to the elegiac, ruminative Nineties "Memory's Snapshots", these glittering, multifaceted lyric pieces arrest our attention with their beautiful reflective surfaces, casting subtly oblique shadows that linger on the imagination's lens ("I am a camera / recording").

"In this God-haunted book of poems where the Dhammapada and The Tibetan Book of the Dead seem to exert influence equally with the writings of Thoreau and Meister Eckhart, Skip Renker gives us the world made whole again through a language of remarkable precision and clarity. The old dichotomy of subjective/objective falls away, replaced by the thinking mind bodied forth, which is to say, poetry of a very high order. Bearing the Cast is a magnificent achievement."B.F.

A major collection of poems from one of our most accomplished poets, the prominent man of letters behind The Best American Poetry series. Drawing from a wealth of material produced over the course of more than forty years, David Lehman’s New and Selected Poems displays the remarkable range of his poetic genius. A gathering of stunning new poems, prose poems, and translations from modern French masters ushers in the book. Selections from each of Lehman’s seven full-length books of poetry follow and are capped off by a coda of important early and previously uncollected works. Lehman writes poems that captivate as they stimulate thought, poems that capture the romance, irony, and pathos of love, and poems that are lyrical and lovely in unexpected, sometimes even comic ways. This is David Lehman at his best.

Few people writing today could successfully combine an intimate knowledge of Chicago with a poet’s eye, and capture what it’s really like to live in this remarkable city. Embracing a striking variety of human experience—a chance encounter with a veteran on Belmont Avenue, the grimy majesty of the downtown El tracks, domestic violence in a North Side brownstone, the wide-eyed wonder of new arrivals at O’Hare, and much more—these new and selected poems and stories by Reginald Gibbons celebrate the heady mix of elation and despair that is city life. With Slow Trains Overhead, he has rendered a living portrait of Chicago as luminously detailed and powerful as those of Nelson Algren and Carl Sandburg. Gibbons takes the reader from museums and neighborhood life to tense proceedings in Juvenile Court, from comically noir-tinged scenes at a store on Clark Street to midnight immigrants at a gas station on Western Avenue, and from a child's piggybank to nature in urban spaces. For Gibbons, the city’s people, places, and historical reverberations are a compelling human array of the everyday and the extraordinary, of poverty and beauty, of the experience of being one among many. Penned by one of its most prominent writers, Slow Trains Overhead evokes and commemorates human life in a great city.
