Ed Pavlić's new book of poems is Let's Let That Are Not Yet: Inferno. Adrienne Rich has called his work, "Dialogic, dangerous, this is a poetics of body and soul, music to listen to with all five senses." Among his previous collections are Paraph of Bone & Other Kinds of Blue, Labors Lost Left Unfinished, Winners Have Yet to be Announced: A Song for Donny Hathaway, and Visiting Hours at the Color Line. He has also written several critical books, including Crossroads Modernism: Descent and Emergence in African American Literary Culture and Who Can Afford to Improvise?: James Baldwin and Black Music, the Lyric and the Listeners.
C. Dale Young's new book of poems is The Halo. David Orr says, "Young is a doctor as well as a poet, and [his poetry] demonstrates a skilled physician's combination of empathy and formal precision." His previous collections include The Day Underneath the Day, The Second Person, a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award, and Torn, which National Public Radio called one of the best poetry collections of 2011. His work has appeared several times in The Best American Poetry, and he's been anthologized in Asian American Poetry: The Next Generation. Among his honors are fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation.
