Disorientations: Groundings by Jay Wright

ISBN 978-0-9838893-4-2 $15.95 now available

Drifting from New Mexico with lawman Elfego Baca to Ricardo Molinari’s Buenos Aires all the way back to ancient Alexandria, Disorientations: Groundings offers an erudite and at times dizzying exploration of our mortal limits. Metaphysical in both content and manner of metaphor, these poems are in constant dialogue with the physical sciences, mathematics, and number theory. The result is a startling, quixotic, and truly original poetry.

Bookslut on Bunting’s Persia

Bunting's Persia Cover

The February issue of Bookslut includes a review of Bunting’s Persia, translations from the Persian by Basil Bunting, edited by Don Share: “What kind of place is Bunting’s Persia? It is not quite the Persia of FitzGerald, nor is it the Sufi wonderland of recent Rumi translations, though it does bear a resemblance to both. There is plenty of wine, as well as meadows, nightingales, lovesickness, and desert caravans under the stars.” Read the full review here.
