Herso, An Heirship in WavesJill Alexander Essbaum responds to Susana Gardner's Herso: An Heirship in Waves on the Black Radish blog:  "The shape of this book is dictated by the sea itself: mutable, vast, by turns black and cavernous, willing, empty as a bucket full of water."

Two new chapbooks from Nous-zot: ragbag and Turning 25

Two gorgeous new chapbooks now available from Nous-zot: ragbag by Rdr and Turning 25 by Chantel Langlinais, each in numbered editions of 50.

 Language games, language play, Rdr. takes on ancient goddesses and monsters, Freudian archetypes, and the glorious jumble of the quotidian dance.

Conditioned by sudden loss, this collection returns to the poet's twenty-fifth year via twenty-five constraint-driven engagements with texts from twenty-five writers, including Atwood, Beckett, Plath, Whitman, and Wolfe.

Hand-sewn, bound in linen with velum endpapers, these chapbooks are only $5 each--including shipping.  Drop me an email if you're interested: nouszotpress at gmail dot com

Coming up next: The Soft Appeal: Sentiment in the age of Cybernetic Disclosure by Jackqueline Frost.

Susana Gardner's Herso an heirship in waves -- Black Radish Blog

HersoSusana Gardner's new collection of poetry from Black Radish Books, Herso an heirship in waves, is now available from SPD, and you can read j/j hastain's review at the publisher's blog.

Cathy Wagner writes of this collection, "I don't know another poet so formally daring. Rebellious curlicue and lace significant: the pages gleam with pleasure, finesse and audacious measure of human becoming. A consideration of feminine inheritance, rebirth paroled by langue, a her(o)'s journey as decadently articulated as sea-froth. Find it too pretty at your peril—you'll get pricked by the fine point on this punning."
