New From Copper Canyon

I just received a new catalogue from Copper Canyon Press, one of the venerable publishers of poetry-books in the U.S. It is located in Port Townsend, Washington.

What looks good to me in the catalogue:

W.S. Merwin, New and Selected Poems--new in paperback.

Jim Harrison, Saving Daylight.

Maram al-Massri, A Red Cherry on a White-tiled Floor: Selected Poems.

June Jordan, Directed by Desire: The Collected Poems of June Jordan.

Alberto Rios, The Theater of Night.

Taha Muhammad Ali, So What: New & Selected Poems 1971-2005.

Ruth Stone, In the Dark. Stone's poetry is a favorite of a professor, poet, and scholar I knew at U.C. Davis, Sandra Gilbert.

Madline DeFrees, Spectral Waves. DeFrees writes poems of complex structure and startling imagery.

The catalogue also features a list of signed books from the press.
