Published in 2012, Mojave poet Natalie Diaz's debut collection has been an enduring favorite, one whose publication we helped celebrate here with a reading that included Sherman Alexie and others in a basketball gym (she is a former All America college player and European pro). These fervent poems sing to life and travail with passion, humor, insight, and resilience, on the reservation and off. Whenever her next book arrives, it can't be soon enough.
A mind-expanding cultural history of artistic eflorescence in the face of economic fallout, racism and neglect, this book weaves the stories of dozens of musicians, artists and others into an incredibly propulsive, multi-generational epic that you cannot put down. and the music...readers should keep a pen on hand and prepare for frenzied record shopping after reading.
Gilda Joyce is a psychic detective highschooler who just can't help but to find herself in the middle of mysteries requiring her very psychic talents. She's quirky and fun and makes you want to be a psychic detective as well. This may be a young adult series, but it's really for anyone who likes lighthearted detective mysteries.
It's all here! The objects of our lives in the settings where we find them, presented by a lively and animated assortment of dogs. With a nod to her inspiration, Richard Scarry, the author presents enough detail to keep any young child absorbed and delighted for hours on end.
“I’ve always thought of them, of the poems, as being very private investigations and negotiations of a space that I can’t quite figure out—they’re where I wrestle with what I both resist and am drawn to.” I can't stop reading and rereading Phillips's poems. They are carefully considered but always unsettled, restlessly looking to reveal, move deeper, open something unknown. My favorite poems ask questions and Phillips's linger in my head for weeks even when I'm not reading him.
This is what you need to read after Bossypants. This book is hysterically funny. It will make you laugh—the deep, hard kind of laugh where you think you might be choking or that you've ruptured your spleen. Quality sh*t.
