We’ve been unpacking the first cartons of the first books of the year, and we couldn’t be more excited about 2019 and the incredible poetry, lectures, conversations, and less-easily-categorizable works we will publishing. Here is what we have in store:
Dunce, by Mary Ruefle
SoundMachine, by Rachel Zucker
Grief Sequence, by Prageeta Sharma
The Problem of the Many, by Timothy Donnelly
Animal, by Dorothea Lasky and published in the Bagley Wright Lecture Series
Bluets (10th Anniversary Hardcover Edition), by Maggie Nelson
You can check out our spring books right now
, and you can anticipate them going on sale in just a few weeks. At that time, we will also launch the first of our new seasonal bundles, which will allow you to purchase all the books in a single season (spring or fall) for around 40% off.
We are continuing to offer an annual subscription as well, though this year we have streamlined it into a single subscription that collects the best editions we publish of each book. If you are interested, you can sign up here
We will have more to share about books, bundles, sales, and AWP, very soon, so be sure that you are on our mailing list (sign up in the Newsletter field in the bottom right corner of this website).
The National Book Critics Circle announced the 2018 finalists this morning, and Terrance Hayes is on the list TWICE! He is a finalist in poetry for his incredible collection with Penguin, American Sonnets for my Past and Future Assassin, and in criticism for To Float in the Space Between, his extraordinary, hybrid work (drawn from his lectures in the Bagley Wright Lecture Series) on the poet Etheridge Knight, which we published last fall.
Literally two cheers to Terrance Hayes!
Poets, readers, friends,
It's been a good year, and it seems like only yesterday that we were awaiting the first of our Bagley Wright Lecture Series books; or listening to poems on a boat gliding the canals of Tampa; or paging through incredible drawings of Etheridge Knight; or delighting in Philip Lamantia's letters of conscientious objection to war; or taking a ferry across the sound to a wonderland of typewriters; or talking a mile a minute at bookfairs in Seattle, Brooklyn, and Portland; or carefully balancing a little papercraft amid the cacti.
That last one literally was yesterday. And everything that card says is true: we are having a HOLIDAY SALE. To celebrate the year. ALL TITLES are 30% OFF, with FREE SHIPPING in the US.
Head over to our holiday collection
(hint: it's all the books) and the discount should be applied automatically. Or simply plug in "ANDOTHERPOEMS
" when you check out.
The sale will run until the end of the year.
Our October books have just arrived! Now in Seattle—and moving around the rest of the world—is Philip Lamantia's selected prose, Preserving Fire, and two new collections of poetry: XoeteoX, by Edwin Torres, and Something for Everybody, by Anselm Berrigan. These books will officially publish on October 9th, and from now until then we'll have them on sale, 33% off paperbacks and 20% hardcovers. Just follow the links for any of them that pique your interest and find them already discounted.
