Review of Playtime

In new titles on July 23, 2015 at 3:49 am


Ray McDaniel has written a thoughtful review of William Fuller’s Playtime for Constant Critic: “…sometimes he sounds like he’s trying to recount a dream, and sometimes he sounds like he’s carefully wending his way through a police deposition, and sometimes he sounds like he is speaking to a very precocious but somewhat literal-minded child, and sometimes he sounds like he’s trying to convince you he isn’t crazy, or maybe it’s that he thinks you are crazy and he is trying to convince you that he understands, please come down from the roof, everything will be fine.” Read the full review here.

Playtime by William Fuller

Flood Editions ISBN 978-0-9903407-3-7 $15.95

Now available from Flood Editions and Small Press Distribution

In Playtime, William Fuller offers dispatches from a strange world. Through deadpan memoranda and dark parables, he addresses uncommon topics from witchcraft to vegetable life. Yet his focus often swerves from recognizable phenomena to the unobservable edges: “We are always searching in vain. Something moves, making us aware that once we were more aware.” And in that striving, shared between writer and reader, Fuller suggests that this strange world is decidedly ours.


“Books of the caliber of Hallucination come along rarely. Books that both puzzle and dazzle at first, then prove better and better with each re-reading. Books with a passion to get the spirit right. Ladies and gentlemen, a masterpiece.”—Calvin Bedient, Boston Review

The first book by an Aboriginal Australian poet published in the U.S.

Through a series of compact lyrics, Ali Cobby Eckermann’s Ruby Moonlight tells the story of a young Aboriginal woman in the late nineteenth century who survives the massacre of her entire family. Wandering alone through Ngadjuri land, in South Australia, she encounters a luckless Irish trapper whose loneliness matches her own. Drawn together for comfort, they discover a momentary paradise along riverbanks and across arid plains that proves fragile in the face of frontier violence and colonization.

Net Needle by Robert Adamson

In new titles, readings on January 19, 2015 at 7:35 pm


Net Needle by Robert Adamson

ISBN 978-0-9903407-1-3 $15.95

In The Times Literary Supplement, David Wheatley calls Adamson “one of the finest Australian poets at work today.”

Net Needle brings together the presiding influences of his life, early and late. He casts an affectionate eye on the Hawkesbury fishermen who “stitched their lives into my days,” childhood escapades, lost literary comrades, the light and tides of the river, and the ambiance of his youth. Throughout, he is characteristically attuned to the natural world, sketching encounters both intimate and strange. These are poems of clear-eyed vision and mastery, borne of long experience, alert and at ease. As Michael Palmer observes, “Eye and ear, none better.” Read the rest of this entry »

In a roundup in the L.A. Times, Stephen Burt reviews Jennifer Moxley’s new book The Open Secret: “Moxley’s earnest and introspective new poems feel almost like personal essays: They take up questions that vex her in daily life, then try to explain why they won’t go away.” Read the full review here.
