              Maestro of Solitude
               

              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.

              Songs Older Than Any Known Singer (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Santos, John Phillip; Foreword by Madrid, Arturo

              In a story told in part by ghosts, the author takes the reader through the Inframundo, the timeless underworld of the ancient peoples of Mexico, to find out how he came to be the scion of a now-childless family. His tale is inhabited by eclectic characters-a clairvoyant albino au...nt; a great-grandfather stolen by the Kickapu Indians; an aunt who learned English from the young Lyndon Baines Johnson in exchange for cabbages and potatoes. Combining traditional memoir, ancient Mexican history and beliefs, personal sacramental journeys, and ghostly interviews, the author gallops through the personal transformation in his first published collection of poetry.

              The Witching Voice: A Novel from the Life of Robert Burns (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Johnston, Arnold

              Based on research and historical facts, this title portrays Robert Burns' life at the height of his fame from 1784 to 1788 as spontaneous, passionate, and sexual. It is the portrait of a man often misguided by the 'witching voice' that motivated him - a drive composed of the same... charms, demons, and shortcomings that nurtured his remarkable gifts.

              Far Out: Poems of the '60s includes poems by over 80 poets who remember that tumultuous decade from a wide range of vantage points. This collection brings to life the experiences of people who vividly remember the effects of the assassinations of Medgar Evars, JFK, Malcolm X, and... Martin Luther King, who lived through the period of the Vietnam War and the protests against it, and who experienced the rise of Second-Wave Feminism, the Civil Rights Act and the emergence of the Black Power Movement, as well as the Apollo 11 moon landing. For anyone who thinks the 1960s were only about sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll, this book will be an eye-opener, although those subjects are also amply covered within these pages!

              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.

              Again for the First Time (Trade Paperback / Paperback, 30th Revised edition)

              By Catacalos, Rosemary; Foreword by Nye, Naomi Shihab

              Originally published in 1984 to great acclaim, this stirring collection of poems pairs and often plays against the mythologies of the author's mixed Greek and Mexican heritage. A strong work of feminism, the pieces blend historical characters with contemporary settings and addres...s issues that include San Antonio street life, racism, mass killings, and foreign wars.

              By Root, William Pitt

              In this first major collection in nearly a decade from a revered American poet, William Pitt Root concerns himself with those extremes - spiritual, physical, or both - at which social and cultural forms disintegrate, leaving the individual as an unshielded witness to transitionin...g miracles that induce a state of awe that cannot be diminished, diverted, or ignored.
