              Awakened by Surprise (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              While Bonazzi's poetry has been characterized by critic Paul Christensen as taking poetry to its limits of subtlety, where sense nearly but does not quite give out into silence and awe, these fictional takes are entirely opposite. They ripple with sarcasm, satire, puns, and plays... on cliches, pondering headlong into the paradoxical realities of society, philosophy and art, illuminated by his heroes-Kierkegaard, Kafka, Beckett, seditious commas, and a pianist who plays only the first nine notes of Fur Elise (but to perfection).

              Maestro of Solitude (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Bonazzi, Robert

              Highlighting work from the 1990s into the new millennium, Robert Bonazzi's fifth book of poems draws upon the slow-gathering wisdom of late middle age. These poems are dialogues between the clockwork of ego and timeless solitude and between earthly intimacy and the death of loved... ones; lucid discourses on global politics and besieged communities; and witty takes on poetics and the arts.

              Publisher's description: Studs Terkel tells us in his Foreword to the definitive Griffin Estate Edition of Black Like Me: This is a contemporary book, you bet. Indeed, Black Like Me remains required reading in thousands of high schools and colleges for this very reason. Regardles...s of how much progress has been made in eliminating outright racism from American life, Black Like Me endures as a great human and humanitarian document. In our era, when international terrorism is most often defined in terms of a single ethnic designation and a single religion, we need to be reminded that America has been blinded by fear and racial intolerance before. As John Lennon wrote, Living is easy with eyes closed. Black Like Me is the story of a man who opened his eyes, and helped an entire nation to do likewise.

              El Paso Days (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Bode, Elroy; Introduction by Bonazzi, Robert

              The thoughts, scenes, and observations gathered in this collection written by an aging Elroy Bode concern themselves on the surface with the daily happenings during a typical year, reflecting the author's sense of kinship with the people, creatures, and beauty of the Texas desert.... Upon closer inspection, however, these short sketches deal with the nature and meaning of life and the inevitable loss of its pleasures, satisfactions, and mysteries-especially in the context of the natural world that surrounds him. The book ends with a long and powerful recounting by Bode of the incredible circumstances surrounding the death of his son.
