Hitchcock and Louis available for pre-order

Our next two titles, Adrian C. Louis's Archeology and George Hitchcock's Six-Minute Poems, are now available for pre-order. These titles should be back from the printer and stitched together by the end of the month. We are extremely proud to be publishing these major American poets. Throughout their careers, both Louis and Hitchcock have been defiant forces in the political / artistic landscape of American poetry and poetics. Louis opts for a hard-nosed, bitter realism that is damning, chilling, yet big-hearted. Hitchcock's vision is that of an absurd and surreal trickster. When asked to state his occupation in front of the House of Un-American Activities Committee, Hitchcock replied:

"My profession is a gardener. I do underground work on plants."

Cheers, and happy reading!
