Ken Meisel’s got the beat in his hit parade of Motown poems.I love his long lines and smoky fires, the effect gravity has on the living and the dead. His Purgatorio includes Marvin Gaye, an echo of better times painted onto a billboard overlooking the freeway and Dubois Street. Meisel is interested in the music of “grassy fields and abandoned places...wild pheasants and drunks.” He is our modern Virgil taking us through the Rinaldo Arms Manor. Read him and be saved. —Russell Thorburn, author of The Drunken Piano

Reply to an Eviction Notice:
Flanagan wins me with his rich humor and compassion, his keen ear and sharp eye, his technical skill, his ability to slam a poem shut with a crash, his way with simile and metaphor. Here is a rich, long overdue gathering of Flanagan’s finest and most insightful poems, the harvest of four decades. Open this book and you just might find it irresistible. – X. J. Kennedy
These intelligent, sharply focused poems recall a gritty past of rented apartments (“cramped endurances”), “cracked tar,” the fight game, and turf wars in scenes of working class urban America, 1950s. But this poet is also at ease with the natural world as he sinks his roots in the river beds of Ohio, dreaming “peace for his children,” flashing forward to insights of a life lived through…I greet this strong and moving book with admiration and joy. – Colette Inez
Robert Flanagan was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. A graduate of the University of Toledo and the University of Chicago, he taught at Ohio Wesleyan University where he directed the creative writing program.

“Erika Meyers brings a startlingly original and honest voice to contemporary fiction. Her characters are as various and fascinating as the rats, groundhogs, and cockroaches who inhabit the dark hidden corners of their homes and lives. In this admirably thoughtful and intelligent novel she explores the shifting boundaries between human and animal, the acceptable and the repulsive, insiders and outsiders, with a wry and captivating humour. A truly original, entertaining, first novel.” -Eilis Ni Dhuibhne, author of The Dancers Dancing
