70 ADERIBIGBE, D. M. How The End First Showed.
University of Wisconsin Press, Madison: 2018. Wisconsin Poetry Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Crafting raw memories into restrained and compact verse, D. M. Aderibigbe traces the history of domestic and emotional abuse against women in his family. A witnessing son, grandson, nephew, and brother, he rejects the tradition of praise songs for the honored father, refusing to offer tribute to men who dishonor their wives. Widening his gaze to capture the moral rhythms of life in Lagos, he embraces themes of love, spirituality, poverty, compassion, sickness, and death. Aderibigbe offers both an extended elegy for his mother and poems addressed to children of the African continent, poems that speak to the past that has made them. We salivated; slices of yam softened. We chewed our teeth; slices of yam perished. Mother smiled. Father arrived, filled the room with curses; his voice beat in our hearts, as thunder on the walls of a building. His empty stomach was a bowl of anger. In a room built with our silence, father was hitting mother. —excerpt from "Hungry Man" © D. M. Aderibigbe. All rights reserved. D. M. Aderibigbe D. M. Aderibigbe is a PhD student at Florida State University. He is the author of a chapbook, In Praise of Our Absent Father, selected for the New Generation African Poets Series of the African Poetry Book Fund. Born and raised in Nigeria, he earned his MFA in poetry from Boston University. His poems have appeared in the African American Review, The Nation, Ninth Letter, Poetry Review, Prairie Schooner, Rattle, and elsewhere. "In the urgent, abrupt, incantational poems of D. M. Aderibigbe, an essential gesture is simile: the explicit, striving word 'like' recurs often. And in every poem Aderibigbe thinks in metaphor. In a world of difference, amid unique strokes of memory and abandonment, violence and love, that action of likeness attains spiritual force."—Robert Pinsky "A debut that electrifies and ignites beacons of much-needed understanding through even the darkest of days. These memorable poems twist and tumble across entire countries, while making maps of love and heartbreak. A brilliant beginning. Remember this name: Aderibigbe."—Aimee Nezhukumatathil, contest judge

Saturnalia, Philadelphia: 2009. First Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
To the Bone, winner of the 2008 Saturnalia Books Poetry Prize, selected by Mark Doty, is a poetic feast. These lush, highly detailed, and at times vulgar poems give insight into the body, mind, and soul of the millions of kitchen workers across the globe. Told with gritty authenticity that only someone with true life experience working "the back of the house", to use culinary lingo, can bring, Agudelo leads us by the mouth and nose on a one of a kind experience. In Whitmanesque style, Agudelo gives voice to the myriad of colorful characters who prepare our foods and clean up after us, lifting the veil on what we'd rather not see, but can't turn away from. To the Bone is a unique collection by a stunning new talent. As Mark Doty writes, "To the Bone is an unexpected, bracing debut. You'll have trouble putting it down." Sebastian Agudelo was born in Mexico City. He earned his MA from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and currently teaches literature and writing at University of the Arts and Temple University. He has worked extensively in restaurants in Philadelphia, where he presently lives with his wife and daughter.

72 AHMED, AFZAL SYED; FAROOQI, MUSHARRAF ALI. Rococo And Other Worlds: Selected Poems.
Wesleyan University Press. First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
First English language publication of Urdu's greatest modern poet Afzal Ahmed Syed holds a unique place among contemporary poets of the Urdu language, as an acknowledged master of both the classical and modern Urdu poetic forms. The poems in Rococo and Other Worlds explore the mythology and historical realities of South Asia and the Middle East; their bold imagery creates narratives of voluptuous perfection, which remain inseparable from the political realities that Syed witnessed as a young observer of the violent separation of East Pakistan and emergence of Bangladesh in 1971 and of the Lebanese civil war in 1976. Musharraf Ali Farooqi's sensitive translations bring this extraordinary work to English readers for the first time.

77 ALARCÓN, FRANCISCO X. Canto Hondo / Deep Song.
University of Arizona Press, Tucson: 2015. Camino del Sol Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Canto hondo / Deep Song honors the Andalusian deep lyric, or canto hondo, poetry of famed Spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca through rich and expressive poems. Francisco X. Alarcon deftly places Spanish and English side-by-side in this bilingual collection that is a modern meditation on love, self, loss, and universal truths. In this new collection, Alarcon creates poetry with roots in Gypsy songs clapped out in the distinctively short rhythms of flamenco music. Each page lifts the heart and stirs the soul by delving deep into the struggle for self and sexual identity. Canto hondo / Deep Song includes 106 poems divided into four sections that articulate struggle, otherness, and the meaning of the poetic landscape. Like Lorca, Alarcon seeks out the fault lines where the lyric and the political bleed productively and proactively into one another. An important voice in Chicano and GLBT poetry, Alarcon writes with a complex, emotionally powerful style that is accessible to students and all lovers of poetry and poetic traditions. "In this collection, Alarcon provides his readers a truly ambitious, multifaceted, and polyphonic deep song, as sustained and distinguished as the oeuvre of this singular poet himself."—Gary Keller, founder and editor of The Bilingual Review / La Revista Bilingüe "In Canto hondo / Deep Song, a new bilingual collection, poems draw matter from the Earth itself to address love and lust in a gorgeous and frank canto inspired by Federico Garcia Lorca's own Canto Hondo. 'Now you turn out to be a continent where I can spend my whole life and never really finish exploring you,' writes Francisco X. Alarcon, an observation that augurs the experience of reading this important new collection by one of our most significant Chicano poets."—Carmen Gimnez Smith, author of Milk and Filth "A vibrant, moving, erotic, and highly charged sequence of poems."—Ray Gonzalez, author of Soul Over Lightning "Over the span of his career in letters, Francisco X. Alarcon has regaled us with his celebratory, joyful verse borne out of his love and respect for nature, community, culture, and the every day moments in life worth singing about. With Canto Hondo/ Deep Song, he reminds us that when the heart aches, it too carries an impressive tune—urgent, far-reaching and devastatingly true."—Rigoberto Gonzalez, author of Red-Inked Retablos

University of Arizona Press, Tucson: 2016. Camino del Sol Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
On April 20, 2010, nine Latino students chained themselves to the main doors of the Arizona State Capitol in an act of civil disobedience to protest Arizona's SB 1070. Moved by the students' actions, that same day Francisco X. Alarcon responded by writing a poem in Spanish and English titled "Para Los Nueve del Capitolio/ For the Capitol Nine," which he dedicated to the students. The students replied to the poem with a collective online message. To share with the world what was taking place, Alarcon then created a Facebook page called "Poets Responding to SB 1070" and posted the poem, launching a powerful and dynamic forum for social justice. Since then, more than three thousand original contributions by poets and artists from around the globe have been posted to the page. Poetry of Resistance offers a selection of these works, addressing a wide variety of themes, including racial profiling, xenophobia, cultural misunderstanding, violence against refugees, shared identity, and much more. Contributors include distinguished poets such as Francisco Aragon, Devreaux Baker, Sarah Browning, Lorna Dee Cervantes, Susan Deer Cloud, Sharon Dubiago, Martin Espada, Genny Lim, Pam Uschuk, and Alma Luz Villanueva. Bringing together more than eighty writers, the anthology powerfully articulates the need for change and the primacy of basic human rights. Each poem shows the heartfelt dedication these writers and artists have to justice in a world that has become larger than borders. Poetry of Resistance is a poetic call for tolerance, reflection, reconciliation, and healing. "Poetry of Resistance is a timely response (via verse) to the current political climate of Arizona, though what the book ultimately argues is that these injustices have always been taking place—SB 1070 is simply its most recent manifestation." —Rigoberto Gonzalez, author of Our Lady of the Crossword "Alarcon and co-editor the eco-poet and activist Odilia Galvan Rodriguez selected the strongest work from the hundreds of entries to shape this anthology whose communal message—a plea for social change—will remain timeless and resonant."—NBC News "With a firmly global perspective, Galvan Rodriguez threads all of her work together with the theme of empowerment."—HipLatina

University of Arizona Press, Tucson: 2019. Advance Reading Copy. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
For beloved writer and mentor Francisco X. Alarcon, the collection Snake Poems: An Aztec Invocation was a poetic quest to reclaim a birthright. Originally published in 1992, the book propelled Alarcon to the forefront of contemporary Chicano letters. Alarcon was a stalwart student, researcher, and specialist on the lost teachings of his Indigenous ancestors. He first found their wisdom in the words of his Mexica (Aztec) grandmother and then by culling through historical texts. During a Fulbright fellowship to Mexico, Alarcon uncovered the writings of zealously religious Mexican priest Hernando Ruiz de Alarcon (1587-1646), who collected (often using extreme measures), translated, and interpreted Nahuatl spells and invocations. In Snake Poems Francisco Alarcon offered his own poetic responses, reclaiming the colonial manuscript and making it new. This special edition is a tender tribute to Alarcon, who passed away in 2016, and includes Nahuatl, Spanish, and English renditions of the 104 poems based on Nahuatl invocations and spells that have survived more than three centuries. The book opens with remembrances and testimonials about Alarcon's impact as a writer, colleague, activist, and friend from former poet laureate Juan Felipe Herrera and poet and activist Odilia Galvan Rodriguez, who writes, "This book is another one of those doors that [Francisco] opened and invited us to enter. Here we get to visit a snapshot in time of an ancient place of Nahuatl-speaking ancestors, and Francisco's poetic response to what he saw through their eyes." The late Francisco X. Alarcon (1954-2016) was an award-winning Chicano poet and educator. He authored fourteen volumes of poetry, published seven books for children through Lee & Low Books, and taught at the University of California, Davis, where he directed the Spanish for Native Speakers Program. He created the Facebook page Poets Responding (to SB 1070) and co-founded Los Escritores del Nuevo Sol / The Writers of the New Sun. Odilia Galvan Rodriguez is a poet, writer, editor, and activist. She is co-editor, along with Francisco X. Alarcon, of the award-winning anthology Poetry of Resistance: Voices for Social Justice. She has worked as the editor for several magazines, most recently at Tricontinental Magazine in Havana, Cuba, and Cloud Women's Quarterly Journal online. Poet and performance artist Juan Felipe Herrera is the author of many books of poetry and prose, as well as two bilingual books for children. He was the United States Poet Laureate from 2015 to 2017. "With his poetry, his activism, and his living/loving, Francisco X. Alarcon taught us that borders are fallacies, violences upon the body politic, the earth, and the human spirit. Even now, Francisco's words and his legacy build the just and moral pathway we can travel toward one another."—Sarah Browning, Founding Executive Director of Split This Rock "Yes: the slender, chiseled lines. Yes: the iconic minimalism. But this trilingual tome unfurls what Galvan Rodriguez aptly calls his 'spirit book.' It startles me still—this ancestral theology. Best embodied when he sings: 'my people's / past is / my staff // my pounding / heart / the only drum.'"—Francisco Aragon, author of His Tongue a Swath of Sky This trilingual edition offers an expanded new look at a beloved poet and mentor's treasured early work.
