What does it really mean when people are viewed as bytes of data? And is there beauty or an imaginative potential to information culture and the databases cataloging it? As Too Numerous reveals, the raw material of bytes and data points can be reshaped and repurposed for ridiculous, melancholic, and even aesthetic purposes.

Grappling with an information culture that is both intimidating and daunting, Kent Shaw considers the impersonality represented by the continuing accumulation of personal information and the felicities-and barriers-that result: "The us that was inside us was magnificent structures. And they weren't going to grow any larger."

More Info

True Story is Randy Blasing's tenth book of poems. He plots the true stories he tells here along the trajectory of his actual life-from his memories of growing up in the Midwest to his experience of living in New England and visiting the Southwest and the Mideast-in no-holds-barred poems bristling with particulars and steeped in emotion, where past and present meet and come alive.


For example, a starlit fall night brings to light childhood autumns that shape his life to this day; a classic-car show takes him down Memory Lane to when the heady fifties came unglued in the sixties; a graphic dream returns him to his lost first love. Or now he is a casual collector of Zuni fetishes, in which nature and the sacred intersect as art, in New Mexico; now he is the American father-of-the-groom at his son's Turkish wedding; or now he belongs to an endangered species quarantined against a viral attack. Always true to his feelings, he keeps it real, whenever and wherever.

Poetry. "TULIP FARMS AND LEPER COLONIES is a brilliant and funny motion picture of American life, narrated by Charles Harper Webb, but starring all of us-especially those of us who wince at the word 'downsizing,' open personal form letters announcing a ten million dollar prize, and watch Laurel and Hardy. In poem after amazing poem, Webb gets it exactly right, his extraordinary vision transforming our words into our world. Here is a book by a major poet of the twenty-first century whose work is both complex and accessible"-Maura Stanton. Webb is the author of five previous books of poetry, including Liver, which won the 1999 Felix Pollack Prize, and Reading the Water, which won the S.F. Morse Poetry Prize and the Kate Tufts Discovery Award.

The New York Times bestselling debut book of poetry from Lana Del Rey, Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass.

"Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass is the title poem of the book and the first poem I wrote of many. Some of which came to me in their entirety, which I dictated and then typed out, and some that I worked laboriously picking apart each word to make the perfect poem. They are eclectic and honest and not trying to be anything other than what they are and for that reason I'm proud of them, especially because the spirit in which they were written was very authentic." --Lana Del Rey

Lana's breathtaking first book solidifies her further as "the essential writer of her times" (The Atlantic). The collection features more than thirty poems, many exclusive to the book: Never to Heaven, The Land of 1,000 Fires, Past the Bushes Cypress Thriving, LA Who Am I to Love You?, Tessa DiPietro, Happy, Paradise Is Very Fragile, Bare Feet on Linoleum, and many more. This beautiful hardcover edition showcases Lana's typewritten manuscript pages alongside her original photography. The result is an extraordinary poetic landscape that reflects the unguarded spirit of its creator.

Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass is also brought to life in an unprecedented spoken word audiobook which features Lana Del Rey reading fourteen select poems from the book accompanied by music from Grammy Award-winning musician Jack Antonoff.
