Evolution
New Statesman's best books of the year, 2018 This new book of poems and essays by Eileen Myles finds our game-changing writer keying lines in the euphoric style that the New York Times has called 'one of the essential voices in American poetry.' Following the critically claimed Afterglow (a dog memoir) and I Must Be Living Twice, their career-spanning selected poems, Evolution is Myles' first all-new poetry collection since 2011's Snowflake/different streets. These new poems upend genre in a vernacular that enacts, like nothing else, the way we speak (inside and out today). From walking around Marfa and New York City with an orange pit bull to Eileen's transcendent acceptance speech as President, Evolution lifts a can of Diet Coke as an End-of-the-World toast to embodiment, irreverence and risk.

Dark Testament: and Other Poems
There has been explosive interest in the life of Pauli Murray, as reflected in a recent profile in The New Yorker, the publication of a definitive biography, and a new Yale University college in her name. Murray has been suddenly cited by leading historians as a woman who contributed far more to the civil rights movement than anyone knew, being arrested in 1940-fifteen years before Rosa Parks-for refusing to give up her seat on a Virginia bus. Celebrated by twenty-first-century readers as a civil rights activist on the level of King, Parks, and John Lewis, she is also being rediscovered as a gifted writer of memoir, sermons, and poems. Originally published in 1970 and long unavailable, Dark Testament and Other Poems attests to her fierce lyrical powers. At turns song, prayer, and lamentation, Murray's poems speak to the brutal history of slavery and Jim Crow and the dream of racial justice and equality.

What It Doesn't Have to Do With: Poems
Lindsay Bernal's What It Doesn't Have to Do With explores through sculpture, painting, pornography, and performance art changing views on gender and sexuality. The elegiac meditations throughout this collection link the objectification of women in art and life to personal narratives of heartbreak, urban estrangement, and suicide. Haunted by the notions of femininity and domesticity, the protagonist struggles to define the self in shifting cultural landscapes. Ezra Pound, Louise Bourgeois, and Morrissey coexist within the unruly, feminist imagination of these poems. Through quick turns and juxtapositions, Lindsay Bernal navigates the paradoxical states of grief and love, alternating between vulnerability and irony, despair and humor. Her wry, contemporary voice confronts serious subjects with unpredictable wit.

She Must Be Mad: the bestselling poetry debut of 2018
`Brave and beautiful.' Stylist Magazine `Social media's answer to Carol Ann Duffy' Sunday Times STYLE `Divine.' Cecelia Ahern She Must be Mad explores coming-of-age: the pain and beauty of love, the relief and the agony of turning from girl to woman, the isolation of an untethered mind and the power and subjugation of the body. Charly captures the formative experiences of today's young women from the poignant to the prosaic in writing that is at once witty, wry and heartfelt. Wayward nights out that don't go as planned; the righteous anger at those men with no talent or skill or smarts who occupy the most powerful positions in the world; the strange banality of madness and, of course, the hurt and indecision of unrequited love. For every woman surviving and thriving in today's world, for every girl who feels too much; this is a call for communion, and you are not alone.

I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip
Bestselling writer and activist Alicia Cook returns with I Hope My Voice Doesn't Skip, a collection of poetry, prose, and song. The follow-up to Stuff I've Been Feeling Lately contains anthem-like poems about relationships, mental health, current social issues, and learning from loss, with the promise that recovery is possible. The reader's experience with this unique collection is lifted from the page as Cook has collaborated with a number of up and coming musicians to transform some of her poetry into song. Like her debut book, this one is divided into two parts. Modeled after a vinyl record this time, the collection is separated into the EP record, holding Cook's shorter poetry, and the LP record, holding Cook's longer poetry, prose, and songwriting. Together, they form an inspiring collection for all those recovering from something.

Atmospheric Embroidery: Poems
Poetic cycles that speak to journey and meditation are at the heart of Meena Alexander's latest collection, Atmospheric Embroidery. Metaphors of crossing borders, oceans, and war zones-the power within the journey-give depth to lyrical snapshots and narratives of Bombay and Bollywood, and war-torn stories through the eyes of children. These poems sing the blues of the Indian Ocean, wash up on the ports of Sudan, and scatter the streets of New York City. Where does your story begin? This keepsake collection embroiders a poet's journey, a travel through worlds So landscape becomes us, / Also an interior space bristling with light. Atmospheric Embroidery expresses an art of repose and reflection on ourselves and connections beyond our borders.
