Pale Bird, Spouting Fire

Susan Yuzna's new collection of poetry builds on the success of her 1995 Akron Poetry Prize winner, Her Slender Dress, which won the Poetry Society of America's Norma Farber First Book Award. The new poems speak in a voice recognizably Yuzna's, though now deepened and darkened with a quickening twist of mordant humor.

Pictures at an Exhibition

Wrestling with the questions of travel, memory, and perception, Pictures at an Exhibition: A Petersburg Album is, at its core, an unrequited love song to St. Petersburg.

For more than forty years, he covered what could be called an age of giants, a tumultuous era dominated by larger-than-life politicians like the irrepressible Go… >>Read more

Possum Nocturne

The poems in Possum Nocturne imbue the physical world with human traits and human consciousness, the speakers imagining the landscapes of their days as alive with portentous meaning.
