What a thrill to launch Rogan Kelly’s new chapbook, Demolition in the Tropics, with a gorgeous cover design by Michelle Rojas Hagler. This title is Number 2 in Volume 4 of our long-running Editor’s Series, and you’re going to love it. Check out this review by Eric Steineger over at Citron Review, and this interview by Philip F. Clark over at The Poet’s Grin. And click here to read Rogan’s poem “Silence at the Borderline Bar” and to order a copy of his chapbook!
The good folks at Switchback have published a fresh review by Robbi Nester of Dave Bonta’s Breakdown: Banjo Poems. Thanks so much!
Many thanks to Dave Bonta over at Via Negativa for his lovely, insightful review of Household of Water, Moon, & Snow by Todd Davis. The review posted last week; we’re a little slow here but very much enjoyed reading it this evening.
It’s fascinating how a good review can lead us to reconsider poems we thought were already familiar: having typeset, proofread, and assembled many copies of Household, I was nonetheless invited into these poems all over again. Thanks, Dave.
Our thanks to Laurie Rosenblatt for her fine, probing review of Rebecca Lauren’s The Schwenkfelders–posted today at the Fiddler Crab Review. Check it out!
