10:04: A Novel
10:04: A Novel
by Ben Lerner
Staff Pick
Ben Lerner delivers on the promise of his fiction debut, Leaving the Atocha Station, with this stunning exploration of the lines between fiction and nonfiction, audience and creator, and the mortality of the body and the immortality of art. Lerner's... (read more)

Factory of Tears
Factory of Tears
by Valzhyna Mort
Staff Pick
Mort is a sledgehammer — sometimes to the heart, sometimes to the toes or kneecaps. She reminds me of a young (she's only in her late 20s!!) Zbigniew Herbert, but perhaps even more cutting, even more drastic in conceptualizing war (with such a powerful... (read more)

It Is Daylight
It Is Daylight
by Arda Collins
Staff Pick
Part of Louise Gluck's power squad of the Yale Younger Poets Series, Arda Collins dominated my poetry world this year. Both lonely and comical, Collins plays with God much like, dare I say, Berryman does in The Dream Songs. Collins shows me a place that... (read more)

Flowers
Flowers
by Paul Killebrew
Staff Pick
Flowers does for me what a John Ashbery collection does: mystifies, stifles, and causes a desire to mimic, leaving with it the eventual personal failure to do so. These are signs of great poetry. Killebrew succeeds in creating comic and anecdotal lines... (read more)
