New in April: Eileen Myles,Daniel Allen Cox, Sarah Van Arsdale, and Felice Picano
New month! New books! This April you can pick up new releases from Eileen Myles, Sarah Van Arsdale, and Felice Picano.
- Acclaimed poet, critic, and Lambda Award winning author Eileen Myles releases her first book of poetry since 2007–Snowflake/different streets (Wave Books). The publisher’s blurb states:
[Myles]creates poet and poem anew as she pushes the boundaries of her craft ever closer to the enigmatic core. Snowflake finds the poet awash in an extended and distressed landscape mediated by technology and its distortion of time and space. In different streets, the poet returns home, to the familiar world of human connection. Two books meet as one: more Eileen Myles, more indelible connection, more fleeting ecstasy….
- Cheyenne Press is releasing a new novel from Lambda Award winning novelist Erik Orrantia. The book is described as a vivid fictional examination of ” Tijuana — the melting pot of Mexico, the gateway to the U.S[....]Two million souls struggle for survival, each searching for a way to become … something, anything better. “
- Vincent Emery Productions is releasing a collection of interviews with iconic activist Harvey Milk.
The Harvey Milk Interviews provides 39 interviews spanning Milk’s political career from his first days as an unskilled candidate in 1973 to shortly before his assassination in 1978. They are linked by biographical passages and arranged chronologically so we see Milk’s thoughts changing over time, both his political ideas and his concept of himself.
- Also this month expect new releases from novelist Owen Keehnen, Daniel Allen Cox, and a new memoir from Chana Wilson.
As always, if we missed an author or book, or if you have a book coming out next month, please email us.
