DRUNK BY NOON by Jennifer L. Knox
POETRY, Trade Paper Original
ISBN: 978-0-6151-6355-0
80 pp. | $15.00

Did somebody say Jennifer L. Knox's poems "read like Richard Pryor with an MFA"? Yes, somebody did. (It was John Findura in Verse.) She's also been compared to comedian Sarah Silverman, artist Jeff Koons, a 10-year-old who can't keep her mouth shut, and cartoonist R. Crumb. None of these equations is quite right, however. Jennifer L. Knox's work is unmistakably her own: darkly hilarious, surprisingly empathetic, utterly original. DRUNK BY NOON is the eagerly awaited sequel to Knox's first book, A Gringo Like Me, which is also available from Bloof in a new edition. Visit the Bloof site for more info or to purchase separately.

****

FOR GIRLS (& OTHERS) by Shanna Compton
POETRY, Trade Paper Original
ISBN: 978-0-6151-6697-1
80 pp. | $15.00

In her second collection, Shanna Compton leads readers on a lightly satirical tour through various works of advice for young women, including antique etiquette manuals, 19th-century sermons, pseudoscientific physiology textbooks, newspaper clippings, and the Internet. Counseling girls on everything from fashion to family, the multiple personae in FOR GIRLS (& OTHERS) clamour to convey their contradictory (and often ridiculous) wisdom, as their polyvocal cacophony pitches toward hysterical heights.

BACK IN PRINT!
A GRINGO LIKE ME by Jennifer L. Knox
November 2007
Trade Paper, Second Edition
ISBN: 978-0-6151-6144-0
80 pp. | $15.00

Borrowing its title from an Ennio Morricone ditty in the spaghetti western Gunfight at Red Sands, Jennifer L. Knox’s A Gringo Like Me contains poems at once raucous and sexy, tender and high. In favorites such as “Hot Ass Poem,” “Cruising for Prostitutes,” and “Chicken Bucket,” Knox’s speakers appear ornery, hickish, undereducated, misogynist, or worse, but each quirky character manages to elucidate a truth we’re better off knowing, even if we’d rather forget it. At other times, Knox’s lyrical “I” is downright pretty; in poems like “A Common American Name” and “Freckles” she charms. Knox has collected dramatic monologues, personal lyrics, and even plays together in a single energetic volume for a genuinely surprising debut. Between the poles of her unique range, Knox straddles and tames what she may yet prove to be an artificial divide in American poetry: she’s a former slam champion, but also a three-time contributor to The Best American Poetry; she’s hilarious and performative on stage, but also deeply intellectual and formally in control. In A Gringo Like Me, Knox roughrides her muse at full gallop, shouting obscene slogans, bits of jokes, and sweet nothings at the top of her lungs along the way.

Your Ten Favorite Words, by Reb Livingston



Your Ten Favorite Words, by Reb Livingston
Coconut Books
Buy it here for $15
Coming Soon on Amazon & B&N
ISBN 978-0-6151-6182-2

"What used to be called “the war between the sexes” is now being duked out with great passion and finesse by Reb Livingston in this collection of take-no-prisoners poems. In Your Ten Favorite Words no one is let off the hook, least of all the feisty scribe herself. You know you badly need to read poems in which a 21st century Red Riding Hood declares, “I bide my time sipping seltzer with the/animal meant to gobble Grandma.” You know you cannot live without a book that contains a glacier named “Lucas’s Ejaculation,” section titles like “Our Rascal Asses,” “bitchy, home-wrecking wraiths and dirty, train-hopping banshees” and speakers who make comments such as, “Accept your inner leprosy.” Sassy, freaky, comic, vulnerable, and to use one of her very own neologisms “gleefullized” Reb Livingston’s poems are a shot in the arm and a throb in the brain, a rebellious erotics of language, an irrepressible manifesto of the vagaries of the libido, complete with deep mischievousness and dark misgivings. If you’ve been wondering where poems by the next generation of whip smart, tender/tough women can be found: Eureka! A book full of them is right here.
–Amy Gerstler

Harlot, by Jill Alexander Essbaum



Harlot, by Jill Alexander Essbaum
No Tell Books, $15
Available at Lulu NOW
Available at Amazon and B&N SOON

Few poets’ roots go deeper than the Romantics; Jill Alexander Essbaum’s reach all the way to the Elizabethans. In her Harlot one hears Herbert and Wyatt and Donne, their parallax view of religion as sex and sex as religion, their delight in sin, their smirking penitence, their penchant for the conceit, their riddles and fables, their fondling and squeezing of language. But this “postulant in the Church of the Kiss” is a twenty-first century woman, a “strange woman” less bowed to confession than hell-bent on fairly bragging of threesomes and more complications than were wet-dreamt of in Mr. W. H.’s philosophy.

Shy Green Fields, by Hugh Behm-Steinberg



Shy Green Fields, by Hugh Behm-Steinberg
No Tell Books, $15
Available at Lulu NOW
Available at Amazon & B&N SOON

Hugh Behm-Steinberg’s Shy Green Fields is in company with books by poets who wrote about glorious ordinary days in extraordinary times. In a pillowbook of a hundred seven-line poems, this life, as it is written, has the shadow of Robert Creeley’s A Day Book behind it, and the shadow of Federico Lorca in his famous, reiterated line, “Green, I love you, green, …” a specific, and pacific, emotional response in difficult political times. Behm-Steinberg’s book is, likewise, carnal, primal, and intellectual. Shy Green Fields exults in experience, “Such versions!”
— Jane Miller

The Myth of the Simple Machines, by Laurel Snyder



The Myth of the Simple Machines, by Laurel Snyder
No Tell Books, $15
Available at Lulu NOW
Available at Amazon & B&N SOON

The gorgeous simplicity of Laurel Snyder's language makes all the possibilities—and the impossibility—of living stand out starkly. Her machines are thought machines, memory machines, the machines of false and daily logic, and we recognize them all. And, of course, they don't work this time either, but Snyder has found the poignancy in this, and more than that, she has found its meaning. A startling and touching book.
