Here’s a little more about the books –
Ayaz Pirani’s “How Beautiful People Are” – A trans-national, inter-generational poetry of post-colonial love and loss animated by the syncretizing figure of Kabir and drawn from the extraordinary diwan of ginan and granth literature.
Steffi Tad-y’s “From the Shoreline” – A full-length collection of poetry that brings forward diasporic experience as it intersects with mental illness. Family history and work lyrics occur against a tonal backdrop of the carceral. Yet Tad-y brings a tenderness to these fraught circumstances, finding beauty in detail and repetitive acts of love.
Carl Watts’ “I Just Wrote This Five Minutes Ago” – A book of poetry criticism that shows how contemporary poetry creates meaning and value, how poetry might get real work out of us, in the process locating and grounding us among real people and a real practice.
