MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Tung-Hui Hu’s new poetry collection is Greenhouses, Lighthouses; the James D. Phelan Literary Award Committee says, “Hu’s writing exhibits an alchemical yet materially sound sensibility that challenges what we think we know and undermines what we want to believe.” He is the author of two previous collections, The Book of Motion, winner of the Avery Hopwood Award, and Mine, winner of the Eisner Award.
Benjamin Paloff’s new book of poems is The Politics. D. A. Powell says, “In The Politics, Benjamin Paloff speaks from within some of the finest aspects of classical philosophical poetry’s tunics, without wearing any of the garments instructive-side out. He’s far more politic than that—nimble in wit, provocatively contemporary, and, foremost, a moving and imaginative new voice.” A poetry editor at Boston Review, he has published numerous translations from Polish and Russian.
