Tony Hoagland captures the recognizably American landscape of a man of his generation: sex, friendship, rock and roll, cars, high optimism, and disillusion. With what Robert Pinsky has called “the saving vulgarity of American poetry,” Hoagland’s small biographies of destruction reveal that defeat is a natural prelude to grace and loss a kind of threshold to freedom. “A remarkable book. Without any rhetorical straining, with a disarming witty directness, these poems manage to transform every subject they touch, from love to politics, reaching out from the local and the personal to place the largest issues in the context of feeling. It’s hard to think of a recent book that succeeds with equal grace in fusing the truth-telling and the lyric impulse, clarity and song, in a way that produces such consistent pleasure and surprise.”—Carl Dennis “This is wonderful poetry: exuberant, self-assured, instinct with wisdom and passion.”—Carolyn Kizer “There is a fine strong sense in these poems of real lives being lived in a real world. This is something I greatly prize. And it is all colored, sometimes brightly, by the poet’s own highly romantic vision of things, so that what we may think we already know ends up seeming rich and strange.”—Donald Justice “In Sweet Ruin, we’re banging along the Baja of our little American lives, spritzing truth from our lapels, elbowing our compadres, the Seven Deadly Sins. Maybe we’re unhappy in a less than tragic way, but our ruin requires of us a love and understanding and loyalty just as deep and sweet as any tragic hero’s. And it’s all the more poignant in a sad and funny way because the purpose of this forced spiritual march, Hoagland seems to be saying, is to leave ourselves behind. Undoubtedly, you will recognize among the body count many of your selves.”—Jack Myers

"Brooklyn's Domino Sugar Refinery, once the largest refinery in the world, shut down in 2004 after a long struggle. Most New Yorkers know it only as an icon on the landscape, multiplied on t-shirts and skateboard graphics. This project represents the first time a serious artist has documented the entire site. And it will be the last. Paul Raphaelson, known internationally for his formally intricate urban landscape photographs, was given access to every square foot of the refinery, just weeks before its demolition"--Jacket.

Nach einem gescheiterten Putsch ist die Feyde Calliope Barbot dazu verdammt, in der Welt der Sterblichen zu leben. Ihre einzige Chance, in das Feenreich zurückzukehren, besteht darin, den König der Hölle zu verführen und auszuspionieren. Vor Lila liegt eine schier unlösbare Aufgabe. Denn Abyssian Infernas ist ein furchteinflößender Dämon voll finsterem Begehr. Aber Lila wäre nicht sie selbst, fände sie nicht für alles eine Lösung. Dass sie dabei ihr Herz an den knurrigen Dämon verliert, war allerdings nicht geplant ... "Kresley Coles Geschichten sind der Hammer - die polieren auch den langweiligsten Nachmittag auf!"
