I just spent part of last work working on poetry in part to take a break from the novel I'm currently working on.

I also like to read good books to remind me of how much a book can accomplish. These can be inspiring new books (like Caught by Lisa Moore, Sweetland by Michael Crummey, and All My Puny Sorrows by Miriam Toews), or books that have been in important to me in my life but which I may not have read in a decade or more (Austen, Woolf, Mann, Joyce).(less)

We have a few hours until the giveaway is over, but I wanted to thank in advance all those who entered. When I set up the dates, which were meant to be in proximity to All Souls' Day (Nov 2), I didn't realize the date was coinciding with the American election. I will be glued to my tv through the evening, but look forward to putting the winners' copies in the mail.

All Souls' (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Nov 17, 2012 11:24AM
Description: Bluesy, opinionated, sly, self-chastising and tender, Rhea Tregebov’s All Souls’—her first collection since 2004—commands a range of tones wider and bolder than anything in her previous six books. Inspired by crises both personal (divorce, adult children, aging parents) and societal (global warming, financial implosion),All Souls’ bracingly addresses the quandary at the heart of our present moment: the fear of change and the fear of standing still. Enriched by a sharp palate and crackling with confidence, Tregebov’s new poems capture life in all its rueful aspects, and do so with a lyricism of considerable beauty and power.
