Adultolescence

Adultolescence
Hanna, Gabbie

"From Teen Choice Award-nominated comedian and vlogger Gabbie Hanna, known on YouTube as The Gabbie Show, an astounding debut poetry collection that captures the essence of what it means to come of age in today's world. Gabbie Hanna disarms the sacred and elevates the mundane in this exhilarating debut collection of illustrated poems. Ranging from the sing-song rhythms of children's verses and a sophisticated confessional style, Gabbie explores the emotionally charged space between childhood and womanhood, revealing her own longings, obsessions, and insecurities along the way. Adultolescence heralds the arrival of an artist with a magical ability to connect through alienation, bury truth bombs within observations about pizza cravings and social media, and detonate wickedly funny jokes between moments of existential dread. You'll turn to the last page because you get her, and you'll return to the first page because she gets you"--Provided by publisher.

The Smoke of Horses: Poems

The Smoke of Horses: Poems
Rafferty, Charles, 1965-

"In this fascinating new collection by longtime poet Charles Rafferty, evocative prose poems insert strange and mysterious twists into otherwise mundane middle-class scenarios. With wonderful intelligence and imagination, these compact, revelatory poems show us what is possible when we jettison accepted devices of thought for methods that are stranger, and much truer. Charles Rafferty is the author of six collections of poetry, one collection of stories, and two poetry chapbooks. He lives in Sandy Hook, CT, where he works at a technology research firm, directs the MFA program at Albertus Magnus College, and teaches in the Westport Writers' Workshop"--Provided by publisher.

Rummage: Poems

Rummage: Poems
Oputa, Ife-Chudeni A.

"Her poems explore the eternal themes of the human condition -nature, origin, shame, identity, desire, mortality- with sensitivity and specificity. They illuminate and interrogate the ways that her characters inflict experience pain, ultimately revealing how we must all face our shame in order to grow. No person is blameless; no person is exempt. Divided into four sections, the collection reads as a life of cycle of emotional metamorphosis: girlhood and sexuality, trauma, relationships and grief" --Inside cover.

Rift of Light

Rift of Light
Logan, William, 1950 November 16-

"New work from a poet who "seems to be getting stronger with each collection" (David Yezzi, The New Criterion) William Logan is widely admired as one of our foremost masters of free verse as well as formal poetry; his classical verve conjures up the past within the present and the foreshadowings of the present within the past. In their sculptural turns, their pleasure in the glimmerings of the sublime while rummaging around in the particular, the poems in Rift of Light, Logan's eleventh collection, are a master class of powerful feeling embedded in language. Ranging from Martin Luther to an abandoned crow, from a midwife toad to a small-town janitor, from actress Louise Brooks to Durer's stag beetle, Logan shows an encyclopedic attention to the passing world. Dry, witty, skeptical, these dark and acidic poems prove a constant and informing delight"--Provided by publisher.
