Disorder


Disorder
Vanesha Pravin

“Urgent and severe, Vanesha Pravin’s Disorder attains a global and historical perspective uniquely personal yet wide-ranging.”—Robert Pinsky

“These elegant and spare reckonings with both personal and family history resonate with lyric urgency as they arise in the wake of Pravin’s wistful—at times quietly sober—reflections.”—David St. John, author of The Face: A Novella in Verse

Connie Voisine

“Voisine’s poems flirt with ugliness and with¬†nothingness, negating the body, the street, the desert flowers, the natural world itself. Yet an astonishing, powerful affirmative lyric drive wells up. These remarkable poems operate like everyday miracles, driving the reader from despair to belief, word by word—into the perfect radiance of¬†profound poetic revelation.”—Carol Muske-Dukes, author of Sparrow
