Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P567
ISBN: 9780881466591
Availability: In stock
Price: $20.00
In MEMORY & COMPLICITY, we feel Georgia red clay under Eve Hoffman's bare feet on the dairy farm where she grew up; walk with her though an exhibit of one hundred and fifty postcards of lynchings. We see a girl in a yellow dress at the synagogue her great-grandparents founded--the synagogue bombed four hours later by white racists.

Availability: In stock
Price: $16.00
MERCIFUL DAYS is the fourth collection of poems by East Tennessee poet Jesse Graves, recipient of the James Still Award for Writing about the Appalachia from the Fellowship of Southern Writers. In a language that is both plainspoken and lyrical, Graves examines the connections that hold people together across generations and against the breaches of time and distance. The landscapes of his native region possess a mythic beauty and Graves writes of the animating force it can become in a poet's imagination.

Not Xanadu: Poems
By author: Cathryn Hankla
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: HH1022
ISBN: 9780881468328
Availability: In stock
Price: $22.00
Cathryn Hankla's tenth collection, NOT XANADU, confronts the recurring imprint of the past--culturally, environmentally, and personally. In innovative poems that reclaim and reinvent traditional forms, reversing haikus and truncating sonnets, Hankla's recognition of resonance and presence evolves as a runner moves through a familiarly strange landscape evoking memory without evading keen observation. The poet reminds us that things are not what they seem on the surface or at first glance.

Product Code: P444
ISBN: 9780881462739

Price: $17.00
On the North Slope, Catharine Savage Brosman’s ninth collection of poetry, displays once more the impressive range of her artistry and her powerful poetic vision.

On the Old Plaza: Poems
Product Code: P491
ISBN: 9780881464962
Availability: In stock
Price: $18.00
In her tenth collection, Catharine Savage Brosman's singular voice is heard again as she develops themes featured in her earlier work and adds new ones, displaying her full range of poetic craftsmanship and style and, as one critic wrote, using "metaphors brilliantly fitted in detail to the moods and workings of the human heart and mind." A prefatory poem, "To Readers," uses the figure of trees to emphasize the truth, beauty, mystery, and autonomy of poetry. Yet it is clear that in Brosman's work the art of verse is closely connected to human experience, the very feel of which comes through in the poems that follow.

Scaring the Bears
By author: Gordon Johnston
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P619
ISBN: 9780881467796
Availability: In stock
Price: $16.00
This debut collection braids together published and new poems into a lyrical album quilt of stories and scenes. Wryly funny, earthy, susceptible to river shoals, hymns, old tools, and favorite shirts, these poems refuse to waste their troubles. The potential blessings and losses in fathering, in having sick friends, in acts of faith, in the work of marriage, and in risking everything from minor surgery to gutting trout in grizzly country give these poems tension, drama, and a wry, grateful humanity.

Sharps Cabaret: Poems
By author: Katy Giebenhain
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P543
ISBN: 9780881466140
Availability: In stock
Price: $16.00
The moving targets of identity are not always dramatic or final. SHARPS CABARET brings us ex-expatriate poems. They enter—in one way or another—once-familiar territory. Here, when re-crossing oceans, streets, supermarket aisles, or exam rooms, the trip is always a trip. Something is always at stake. In SHARPS CABARET, Giebenhain handles the underestimated and overlooked with good-natured force. From horseshoe-pitching in a war zone to Mary the Mother of God speaking from an icon, from reading graffiti in a Prague restaurant to American health insurers acting like highway bandits, from the startling cleanliness of German windows to the introduction of the patron saint of the world’s most confusingly-named disease, here’s a collection that urges us to look again.
