Deep Well Available for Preorder
Now available for preorder; releasing March, 2017, Dan Bellm's Deep Well.
With a touch on the keys of language as light as the air we breathe, Dan Bellm traces his mother's death, and abides her continuing presence, as the keeper of "this/ blessing of kindness" which is both hers and his. Deep Well is a book of the purest poetry I have read in a long time. I am grateful for it.

Two New Releases
Anna Seghers's Crossing: A Love Story finds the acclaimed German novelist at the peak of her lyric and narrative abilities. This, the last of her major novels to be translated into English, should return Selghers to the attention of the English-speaking world.
Also coming soon, Peyton Burgess's hilarious and poignant The Frying Pans Aren't Sufficing, a stunning debut about which Yusef Komunyakaa says: "Personal and surreal, these poignant survival stories coax the reader into moments of shared feeling, into truth, reflection, and simple beauty."
