Notes On Sea & Shore flying out the door!

Tavern Books has been filling book orders and marching to the Post Office every day (literally!) in July since we released Greta Wrolstad's Notes On Sea & Shore. We are thrilled to have Greta's book in our catalog, and, as with all of our titles, we will keep this book in print for all to enjoy. Happy reading!

Zach, Wrolstad, and Buson books hot off the press

We've just added three great new titles to our catalog: Greta Wrolstad's Notes on Sea & Shore; Yosa Buson's Buson : Haiku (translated by Franz Wright); and Natan Zach's The Countries We Live In (translated by Peter Everwine). All three titles mark a first. Notes on Sea & Shore is the late Greta Wrolstad's first book publication. Buson : Haiku is the first time any of Franz Wright's Buson translations have been in print. And The Countries We Live In, in addition to being the most comprehensive Zach book in print, is the only book of Natan Zach's poetry available in English.

Also added to the catalog are new broadsides by Natan Zach, Zubair Ahmed, and Yosa Buson.

Currently in the works are books by Else Lasker-Schüler (Eavan Boland, trans.), Tomas Tranströmer (Samuel Charters, trans.), and David Wevill.

Cheer's and happy reading!
