The

latest from PTP


The Mathematics of Disengagement by Susan Hoover






“For those of us privileged to know

her, Susan Hoover’s poems are a reflection of the woman herself. Intelligent,

highly charged, funny, understated, passionate, proud, self-effacing, daring,

joyful, logical, and heartrending. Don’t enter these poems lightly; they won’t

forgive even a flicker of inattention.  Hoover is a top shelf poet; do whatever it takes to

make room for these gorgeous poems, they reward both heart and head.”


- Angelo Verga, author of six

poetry collections, and curator of Literary Events at the legendary

Cornelia Street Café.


“A commanding three-part

mathematical poetic masterpiece of intimate musical delicacy with surprising

twists that land you in the light of fiction and truth/on rough seas/among

swimming words/and the sparkling light of fiction and truth/with the fragility

of glass and the charred edges of repercussion/flipping coins with the

devil/dodging the wreckage of life/falling axes/and edges/lines/and angles

shift and reclaim themselves in the strong shadow of the sun.”


- Bruce Weber, author of

Poetic Justice (Ikon Press) 






Postcards from America by Judith Kerman







"Judith Kerman writes with substance, a wholesome acceptance of an

imperfect world, oneself



included. Her poems are an admirable reality-check for all of us."─Diane

Wakoski
