Remember the sophomore album of your favorite band? The excitement of knowing it wasn't a one-off phenomenon, these guys were here to stay, and damn it if you couldn't see exactly how much they'd grown in part 2? Here's that feeling, encapsulated in a book as slim and attractive as you are in your head. ~ Reviewed by Katelynne Shimkus

Poet Cole gives his attention to Paris, and from that attention springs a tender, intimate meditation on history, love, and art. A beautiful, nourishing book. ~ Reviewed by Cathy Taylor

Through his own personal struggles this poet has developed such a clear and strong voice. There's a wisdom underneath these lines that sometimes simmers until the final verse, but you feel their impact. And then there are certain poems (Changeling) which seem to cut through flesh, back and forth, as each line passes into the next. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell

What is history to us? Smith asks, through a myriad of voices, sloshing through pain and time. A beautiful and poignant way to speak about the present by talking about the past, and discovering similarities between time to uncover truth. Smith is never too far away from sublime in her work, sharing her experiences falling in love, becoming a mother, and seeing the history she will pass on to her child. All the while guiding us through pain, and leaving us all with a little hope. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell
