Lapse Americana

Poetry by Benjamin Myers

NYQ Books, March 2013

ISBN-13: 978-1-935520-71-9

Paperback: 120pp; $14.95

The twin ravens, Thought and Memory, of Norse myth are reborn as American crows to fly an interweaving pattern or remembering and forgetting through the pages of Lapse Americana. Born out of the poet's childhood during the Pax Americana and situated within the war and economic lapse of the new century, these poems explore memory and amnesia, faith and doubt, presence and absence. They are rooted in rural, working class experience as well as in the poetic traditions of America, Europe, and China. By turns formal and jazzy, confessional and coy, these poems speak of the universal by focusing on the particular, insisting with simultaneous emphasis upon the value of remembering and of embracing forgetfulness.

Broken Mirrors

Poetry by Yoon Sik Kim

NYQ Books, November 2012

ISBN-13: 978-1-935520-69-6

Paperback: 108pp; $14.95

In his first full-length collection of poetry, Broken Mirrors, Yoon Sik Kim forges the poetic traditions of the East and the West in a strictly Poundian sense. Following Li Po's light-foot and nature-treading tradition, Kim's passion for lyrics is found throughout the pages. Although his poems stray occasionally into societal issues, which have little to do with the Taoistic aesthetics of lyricism, such digression is unavoidable given that he endures a life of an exile in a foreign country where he tries to wring the core of human existence with this cumbersome language called English. Seeing Pound as his mentor, Kim creates a hard, precise, imagistic luminosity that dominates his poetry and begs the reader to return time and again.

For the Star that May Have Died

Poetry by Nicole Andonov

NYQ Books, November 2012

ISBN-13: 978-1-935520-73-3

Paperback; 108pp; $14.95

For the Star that May Have Died is Nicole Andonov's first full-length book. Collecting numerous chapbooks and 81 years of life experience this book shares intimate moments of her life as an immigrant and an American as well as her reactions to chaotic events that have touched us all, from 9/11 to climate change. Using a variety of styles but a singular, strong voice, she snapshots her way through this lived life with wonder, irreverence, and occasional sadness.
