AWP Shopping List

Black Ocean's new Journal, "Handsome"--I think there is a good chance this will be my new favorite journal, it's got these guys in it: Lily Brown, Sommer Browning, Paula Cisewski, Adam Clay, John Colburn, Jeff Downey, Julie Doxsee, Sarah Fox, Kate Greenstreet, Sarah Goldstein, Joshua Harmon, Annaliese Jakimides, Rauan Klassnik, Gabriella Klein Lindsey, Greg Koehler, Marcia LeBeau, Michael Macklin, Adam Peterson, Joshua Poteat, Mary Ruefle, Tomaz Salamun, Marisa Siegel, Brandon Shimoda, Peter Jay Shippy, Mathias Svalina, Jocko Weyland, Joshua Marie Wilkinson, Barbara Yien and Jake Adam York. Why wouldn't I buy this?
Joshua Marie Wilkinson's, "The Book of Flashlights, Clover & Milk"--From what I've heard, this book is going to be beautiful, and from what I've read, it's going to be awesome.

Jennifer L. Knox's, "Drunk by Noon"--Any book that you'd be inclined to hide from your mother is a book worth owning (now that you don't live with your mother). Knox's poems capture our naughtiest hopes, like when a friend tells you about a gruesome accident they saw and you think, "Man, I've never seen anything that cool."

Dorothea's Lasky's "AWE"--I'm actually a little embarrassed to not have already read this book. Lasky is a poet who seems to have no interest in being a poet. You can't call Lasky a poet, but you can say that there is a poet called Dorothea Lasky.
