“In Bruja, Wendy C. Ortiz deftly navigates the land of dreams in what she calls a dreamoir. By telling us her dreams, by revealing her most unguarded and vulnerable self, Ortiz is, truly, offering readers the most intimate parts of herself–how she loves, how she wants, how she lives, who she is. Bruja is not just a book–it is an enigma and a wonder and utterly entrancing.”
–Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist
“It’s the skull-fucking you didn’t know you needed.”

BACK WITH A NEW, DEFINITIVE EDITION: Robert Kloss’s The Alligators of Abraham is a fever dream built from the fly strewn corpses of armies, the megalomania of generals, the madness of widows, the fires of mourning, the fury of the poor, the indifference of the wealthy, and the ravenous hissing of those alligators who have ever plagued the shores of our national nightmares. The Alligators of Abraham is a Civil War epic unlike any other.
“The stories Matthew Simmons tells in The In-Betweens are strange delights. I love the way he writes, between the unexpected and inevitable, the very narrow place where comedy and tragedy both live, and I love the weird little worlds that first appear alien but later open up to reveal the actual ache and joy inside. The In-Betweens is a really fun and meaningful book and I am happy I was alive to read it.”
–David Connerley Nahm, author of Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky
I love how Henry Hoke plays fast and loose with autobiography and genre. The Book of Endless Sleepovers is wry and finely-wrought, a philosophical fever dream studded with the pleasure of proper names and surprising turns of phrase, a lyric page-turner.
–Maggie Nelson, author of The Argonauts
Lauren Hilger’s debut is a masterful expose of filmic proportions. In each poem is a film beckoning to be viewed, emotional resonance pulling you in for a full embrace. Lady Be Good is a delight and declares Hilger as an important voice in contemporary poetry.
