May Poetry Promotion: Four Books

I have learned that WordTech Communications is now offering my new collection of poems, Tinted Distances, along with three other recent releases in a special sale package. For a limited time, readers can order all four new books of poetry for only $40!

The following volumes are included in the deal. Click on titles to view more information about each collection, including sample poems:

The poems of Angela O’Donnell’s Saint Sinatra swing and shimmer with the beat, the yearning, the soul of a great singer: their music gestures at deeper harmonies. “I do not exaggerate: this book took my breath away.”—Kelly Cherry

The poems of Suzanne Roberts’ Three Hours to Burn a Body range widely over the earth, yet they are as intimate in their touch as the body itself. “Each poem takes us beyond the song of the body and shadow, and asks us to rise above the mist, the rain, and the hours. And without realizing, we find a new way of travelling. Provoking and thrilling!”—Nathalie Handal

The poems of Edward Byrne’s Tinted Distances strongly inhabit the world, even as they meditate on how that world is perceived in art and memory. “This is a wonderful book, one that readers will return to again and again.”—Sherod Santos

The Book of Sarah: Poems on the Life of Sarah Moore Grimke by Amy Benson Brown is a compelling narrative of the life of the nineteenth-century abolitionist and feminist Sarah Grimke. Touching on several important historical currents—racism and slavery, feminism and second-class citizenship—the book imaginatively, and vividly, brings the reader to a precise historical moment. “The Grimke family is a most worthy poetic subject and Brown renders the characters with tenderness and clarity.”—Natasha Trethewey
