PRE-ORDER NOW FOR MARCH 2018!

This masterful companion to Day Unto Day finds common ground between contradictions—beauty and horror, joy and mortality, the personal and the political. Like its predecessor, this collection begins with time: six sequences, each written in one month a year, over the course of six years, bringing together the natural and the all-too-human.

PRE-ORDER NOW FOR MARCH 2018!

This collection deftly spans not only the physical space of global cities, but more intangible and intimate distances: between birth and death, father and son, past and present, metaphor and reality. From experiences defined by an urban landscape to the streets themselves, in these poems startling images collide and mingle like bodies on a busy thoroughfare.

Fady Joudah
PRE-ORDER NOW FOR MARCH 2018!

Love poems to the lovely and unlovely, the loved and unloved, finding tenderness for the other, the dead, and the disappeared. This is a collection that translates between the heart and the mind, the flesh and the more-than-flesh, the word body and the world body.

Fady Joudah is the author of four collections of poems, The Earth in the Attic, Alight, Textu, and, most recently, Footnotes in the Order of Disapperance. A translator of several collections from Arabic, Joudah has received the PEN Translation Award, a Banipal/Times Literary Sopplement prize from the UK, the Griffin Poetry Prize, and A Guggenheim. He lives in Houston and practices internal medicine.
