New Titles for 2014
How a Mirage Works
“Over and over, the world is rendered in the most exacting of visual details. But it isn’t just the world that is scrutinized. Even individual words, like rejection, must withstand this poet’s particular gaze : … This is a fine and well-wrought collection of poems that reward with each and every reading.”—C. Dale Young, author of Torn
“How A Mirage Works is marked by a subtle, free-flowing music and an almost surgical attention to sensuous, definitive detail.”—Cyrus Cassells, author of The Crossed-Out Swastika
Master of Leaves
I love the wit and play of Murray Silverstein’s writing. . . . But what I love most in Master of Leaves is its central meditation on presence, on being . . . and the way the poems drive for epiphany: “Learning late to listen. Everything soothed / by darkness; everything close to its lyric core.”—Richard Silberg
Written by a master architect . . . these poems scale up and down to reveal hauntingly self-similar patterns in nature and patterns of human consciousness in nature. Here, language is the erotically charged, generative seed of fresh unfolding. —Dawn McGuire
