My Year 2009: Facing the Heat
In the eighth volume to appear in Douglas Messerli's on-going cultural memoirs, the author expresses that he suspected, what with the beginning of Barack Obama's presidency, the country would have to face "the heat," so speak, the wrath of the divided electorate and legislatures.
"How could one define The Untameables? Adventure novel? Symbolic poetry? Science fiction? Fable? Philosophical-social vision? None of these categories fits. It's a free-word book. Nude crude synthesizing. Simultaneous polychromatic polyhumourous. Vast violent dynamic." So F. T. Marinetti -- the founder, theoretician, and ringleader of Italian Futurism -- describes his fiction.
Kim Soo-Bok has been publishing poetry for 40 years in South Korea. Beating on Iron contains translations of the poet's own selection from his entire life's work, representing poems marked by compassion and sensitivity, which often adopt a surrealist position in presenting their relationships between the poet and the surrounding world.
Ece Ayhan takes the reader through the dark streets of the Galata district of Istanbul, an area where European minorities lived historically side by side with red light sexual activities. Like a modern-day Rimbaud, Ayhan, in this remarkable translation, explores linguistically and thematically what Turkish culture and authorities have forbidden.

My Year 2010: Shadows
In Douglas Messerli's 11th volume of his ongoing cultural memoirs, which began with the turn of the 21st century in 2000, the author contextualizes events of the year as having fallen into the shadows.
In this, his eighth book of poetry, Aaron Shurin continues to explore the prose-poem format he began in 1984, a form in which he has sought to combine lyric and narrative in a way that reflects in its complexities and contradictions the tension between individual perception and social control; a poetry simultaneously of praise and dislocation.
Crowtet 1: A Murder of Crows and The Hyacinth Macaw
Together, these two plays comprise the first two of four parts of an unofficial gloss on the apocrypha of contemporary, low-rent America. As such, they are, as the author puts it, a "decidedly secular exegesis of the spiritual state of the Onion": blasphemous, hellraising, full of astounding yearning, and hunted by unnamable conbobertation.
Born in 1900 in Antwerp, Belgium, Maurice Gilliams came to be recognized over the century as one of the great Flemish writers. His Elias -- published in 1936 as the first part of a trilogy -- is now read in most schools in Belgium and many classrooms in Holland.
