    Lousy Love Poems

    $10.00

    “In Chinese, I am always 16,” observes Clara Chow in her debut poetry collection. These poems written in Chinese – and the author’s own English translation – are an experiment in bilingualism: How am I a different person in a different language? Simple, direct and heart-felt, this book is an attempt to connect with a fictional beloved, a love letter to a mother tongue, and a reclamation of a dormant self. 多情的人与多情的城相遇擦出了火花,而《几首烂情诗》诞生了。谁说情诗必须有对象?《几首烂情诗》是赵燕芬的第一本双语诗集,以一双带着童真浪漫的眼睛给平凡的世界添上了颜色。 Pap...

    Averno

    $19.00

    This startlingly original reworking of the Persephone myth takes us to the icy shores of Averno, the crater lake regarded by the ancient Romans as the entrance to the underworld. Here, the consolations of rebirth and renewal are eclipsed by the immediacy of loss - by a mother's possessive grief, an abducted girl's equivocal memories, a farmer's lament for a lost harvest. This chorus offers neither comfort nor solace but deepened understanding, its sorrow textured by the poet's luminous wit. T...

    Hiddensee

    $22.00

    Hiddensee represents Annie Freud's most ambitious work to date, not least because it is a book about ambition and its necessity, the need to go beyond oneself, and to do what one cannot: Freud dives into other ways of thinking, other art forms, the taboos of illness and desire, and - spectacularly - other languages. This ambition has also emboldened Freud to pursue and confront the complex truth of herself: her German Jewish inheritance, her teachers, the remarkable minds of the exiled indivi...
