Charles Bernstein is on a mission to tear down and build back up everything we know, believe and love about poetry. His first collection in seven years uses translations, homages, and manifestoes to write a new poetry future. Witty and daring. Playful and brilliant. Recalculating will be in the discussion for all the major poetry awards this year.

A look into one of the most fascinating minds of the late 20th Century.

A broken down cop leading a cluttered life, three of New York's most powerful men, a hunter, a random shooting, and ghosts of old Manhattan.

Presenting a range of previously uncollected essays, this book truly shows David Foster Wallace’s range as a writer and thinker. From pop culture looks at tennis and Terminator 2, to thoughts on math and words, to one of the most thorough critical explorations of David Markson’s seminal and challenging Wittgenstein’s Mistress, Both Flesh and Not, is more proof of Wallace’s expansive brilliance. And the pages between essays are filled with words from Wallace’s personal dictionary, the list of words and definitions he kept over the course of his life. Worth the price of admission right there.

Pepper gets dropped off at the New Hyde mental institution, not because he’s mentally ill, but because the plain-clothed cops who busted him didn’t want to deal with the paperwork of a formal booking. If he keeps his head down he’s out in 72 hours, but New Hyde has problems that drag Pepper down into its culture and close to insanity. Mental illness, power relations, race, sex, and the devil; this book goes beyond horror and social commentary to scratch at universal human truths, further proving that Victor Lavalle is the rightful heir to Kurt Vonnegut

More than just a clever joke, The Emily Dickinson Reader is an insightful look at Emily Dickinson’s work and a wise work of poetry its own right. Through his “translations,” Legault reveals a darker and funnier Dickinson than we might have assumed, while creating a strange synthesis work shining with its own kind of brilliance. This is how he translates poem 432 ““I cannot write people back to life. As hard as I might try. And I do. Furiously. Like a wizard. Or a grammarian.”
