Fall 2016 Titles

Heart Mechanic: Poems by Gisela Ruebsaat

Bones in the deep dark, words sharp as surgery. This debut poetry collection speaks to us in the language of beats, musical pulse and song. It explores the roots of voice: the strains we hear in the chambers of the heart, in the families that house us, and in the body with all its glory and decay.

My Brother’s Basement: Stories and Interludes by Joy Huebert

Louise, hoping to write a novel, has taken refuge in her brother’s basement. Although distracted by Facebook, Downton Abbey and napping, she is still able from time to time to create good sentences that occasionally link up to paragraphs and stories—stories where people enmesh themselves in absurd situations, but also find small resolutions that make basement living a reasonable option. Delightful, subtle, funny.
