In December 2019 comes Jesse Seldess’ third full length collection, Several Rotations. In April 2020, Kenning Editions will publish a collection of Audre Lorde’s lectures, readings, and interviews given in Germany during the 1980s. Audre Lorde: Dream of Europe is edited by Mayra Rodríguez Castro and offers a certain, sometimes surprising curriculum for engaged poetics based on readings of American counter-culture. Later, look for new books by Devin King, Legna Rodriguez and Holly Melgard. Care of editor Daniel Borzutzky, Juan Luis Martinez’s The New Novel will appear before too long, also, the first translation into English of this influential and strange rupture in the generic edifice of poetry.
The previous season saw much lauded releases, including: Kevin Killian’s selected plays, Stage Fright; Grenade in Mouth: Some Poems of Miyó Vestrini, edited by Faride Mereb, and translated by Anne Boyer and Cassandra Gillig; and Craig Dworkin’s The Pine-Woods Notebook. September 2019 brings The Chilean Flag by Elvira Hernández, translated by Alec Schumacher, and with an introduction by Cecilia Vicuña. The Dirty Text by Afro-Cuban poet Soleida Rios (translated by Barbara Jamison and Olivia Lott) was named by Entropy one of the best works of fiction published in 2018. Juana I by Ana Arzoumanian (translated by Gabriel Amor) was released and we were able to bring Ana to the United States for her first ever readings in New York and Chicago.
