  • A Hand Full of Water

    by Tzveta Sofronieva $16.00
    Poetry from White Pine Press
    Translated from German

    “Tzveta Sofronieva’s poetry sparkles, not in her native Bulgarian, but in German; like her compatriot Bulgarian Julia Kristeva, she changed tongues to reach a wider world. Her A Hand Full of Water is the most compelling volume in German verse since the work of Ingeborg Bachman and Hans Magnus Enzensberger.” — Willis Barnstone

  • A Peaceful Color From the Silence

    by Gulnar Ali Balata $17.00
    Poetry from Červená Barva Press
    Translated from Kurdish

    “Gulnar Ali Balata’s fourth volume of poetry… is an intimate gift by a mature poet infused with love for her tattered homeland of Iraqi Kurdistan. Her pen ripples with sparkling rivers and her expectant heart wrings with sadness as she infuses her poems in shooting stars and sweet dew, as ‘tears braid Fate’s threads… shoulder / the coffin of [her] childhood.'” — Molly Lynn Watt

  • Average Neuroses

    by Marianne Koluda Hansen $15.00
    Poetry from Spuyten Duyvil
    Translated from Danish

    “The whole blooming and exasperating world is here in Hansen’s delightfully associative poems… Hansen’s voice is full of wit, longing, irony (both personal and political), and tender detail about the absurdity of being human…”  – Patrick Donnelly

  • Beyond Elsewhere

    by Gabriel Arnou-Laujeac $16.00
    Poetry from White Pine Press
    Translated from French

    Beyond Elsewhere, a verse narrative that speaks of exile, is the odyssey of a soul in search of the absolute, the epiphany of being in love that represents a moment in eternity, at once of distress and salvation, a beacon on one’s path.

  • Divan of Ghalib

    by Nachoem Wijnberg $18.00
    Poetry from White Pine Press
    Translated from Dutch

    Wijnberg creates an astounding edifice filled with mirror-rooms and concealed doors; the entrance may not be easy to find but inside there are treasures of the utmost importance. The further you go, the more you find. The result is one of astonishing richness as he takes on the original Divan of Ghalib and renders it his own much as Robert Bly absorbed the lessons of Ghalib and created his own Ghazals.
