<b>An “astounding” (Terrance Hayes) debut collection of poems – Winner of the 2016 National Poetry Series Competition</b><br /><br />In this ­­­powerful debut collection, sam sax explores and explodes the linkages between desire, addiction, and the history of mental health. These brave, formally dexterous poems examine antiquated diagnoses and procedures from hysteria to lobotomy; offer meditations on risky sex; and take up the poet’s personal and family histories as mental health patients and practitioners. Ultimately, <i>Madness</i> attempts to build a queer lineage out of inherited language and cultural artifacts; these poems trouble the static categories of sanity, heterosexuality, masculinity, normality, and health. sax’s innovative collection embodies the strange and disjunctive workings of the mind as it grapples to make sense of the world around it.

One of the most recognizable young poets in America, Olivia Gatwood dazzles with her tribute to contemporary American womanhood in her debut book, New American Best Friend. Gatwood's poems deftly deconstruct traditional stereotypes. The focus shifts from childhood to adulthood, gender to sexuality, violence to joy. And always and inexorably, the book moves toward celebration, culminating in a series of odes: odes to the body, to tough women, to embracing your own journey in all its failures and triumphs.

His poems are by turns graceful and wonderstruck. His lines are both long and short, his pose narrative and lyric, his diction formal and insouciant. From the outside, Vuong has fashioned a poetry of inclusion.”—<I>The New Yorker</I></p><p><I>"Night Sky with Exit Wounds</I> establishes Vuong as a fierce new talent to be reckoned with...This book is a masterpiece that captures, with elegance, the raw sorrows and joys of human existence."—<I>Buzzfeed</I>'s "Most Exciting New Books of 2016"</p><p><p>"This original, sprightly wordsmith of tumbling pulsing phrases pushes poetry to a new level...A stunning introduction to a young poet who writes with both assurance and vulnerability. Visceral, tender and lyrical, fleet and agile, these poems unflinchingly face the legacies of violence and cultural displacement but they also assume a position of wonder before the world.”—2016 Whiting Award citation</p><p>"<I>Night Sky with Exit Wounds</I> is the kind of book that soon becomes worn with love. You will want to crease every page to come back to it, to underline every other line because each word resonates with power."—<I>LitHub</I></p><p>"Vuong’s powerful voice explores passion, violence, history, identity—all with a tremendous humanity."—<I>Slate</I><p>“In his impressive debut collection, Vuong, a 2014 Ruth Lilly fellow, writes beauty into—and culls from—individual, familial, and historical traumas. Vuong exists as both observer and observed throughout the book as he explores deeply personal themes such as poverty, depression, queer sexuality, domestic abuse, and the various forms of violence inflicted on his family during the Vietnam War. Poems float and strike in equal measure as the poet strives to transform pain into clarity. Managing this balance becomes the crux of the collection, as when he writes, ‘Your father is only your father/ until one of you forgets. Like how the spine/ won’t remember its wings/ no matter how many times our knees/ kiss the pavement.’”—<I>Publishers Weekly</I></p><p>"What a treasure [Ocean Vuong] is to us. What a perfume he's crushed and rendered of his heart and soul. What a gift this book is."—Li-Young Lee</p></p><p><B>Torso of Air</B></p><p><I>Suppose you do change your life.<BR>& the body is more than</I></p><p><I>a portion of night—sealed<BR>with bruises. Suppose you woke</I></p><p><I>& found your shadow replaced<BR>by a black wolf. The boy, beautiful </I></p><p><I>& gone. So you take the knife to the wall<BR>instead. You carve & carve</I></p><p><I>until a coin of light appears<BR>& you get to look in, at last,</I></p><p><I>on happiness. The eye<BR>staring back from the other side—</I></p><p><I>waiting.</I></p><p>Born in Saigon, Vietnam, <B>Ocean Vuong </B>attended Brooklyn College. He is the author of two chapbooks as well as a full-length collection, <I>Night Sky with Exit Wounds</I>.

<div><p>"His territory is [where] passion and eloquence collide and fuse.'—<i>The New York Times</i></P><p>"Richard Siken writes about love, desire, violence, and eroticism with a cinematic brilliance and urgency."—<i>Huffington Post</i></P><p>Richard Siken's debut, <i>Crush</i>, won the Yale Younger Poets' Prize, sold over 20,000 copies, and earned him a devoted fan-base. In this much-anticipated second book, Richard Siken seeks definite answers to indefinite questions: what it means to be called to make—whether it is a self, love, war, or art—and what it means to answer that call. In poems equal parts contradiction and clarity, logic and dream, Siken tells the modern world an unforgettable fable about itself.</P><p><b>The Museum</b></P><p><i>Two lovers went to the museum and wandered the rooms.<br />He saw a painting and stood in front of it<br />for too long. It was a few minutes before she<br />realized he had gotten stuck. He was stuck looking<br />at a painting. She stood next to him, looking at his<br />face and then the face in the painting. What do you<br />see? she asked. I don't know, he said. He didn't<br />know. She was disappointed, then bored. He was<br />looking at a face and she was looking at her watch.<br />This is where everything changed . . .</i> <p><b>Richard Siken</b> is a poet, painter, and filmmaker.
