A ruckus of awkward stacking by Matt Robinson( file )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 234 libraries worldwide
A Ruckus of Awkward Stacking is about memory -- memory as a poetic form through which refractions of loss, recovery, discovery and identity form an imaginative reshaping of the past. In raw brushstrokes, Robinson records the slow cascade of events and characters slipping through the thin membrane of experience, shaping our histories. At the same time, he experiments with style and form in a wonderfully sinuous writing. With this, his first book, Robinson makes a staggering debut on the North American literary stage
Ashes are bone and dust poems by Jill Battson( file )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 228 libraries worldwide
Jill Battson, whose first book of poems, Hard Candy, shook the poetry establishment by its well-starched neck, is back with a second breathtaking collection of lyric and elegiac poems. These are poems that are not afraid to name real people and real places, poems that revel in the relationships that make our lives, in the end, worth living. Ashes Are Bone and Dust maps the way through grief and recovery. The poems -- sensual, disturbing and probing -- document Battson's parents' death and the aftermath that loss leaves behind. They also address the process of recovery, pulling heavily on the journey for discovery both tangible and emotional. Battson's poems are raw and beautiful, difficult and flowing, intensely evocative and imbued with the language and imagery of sex
