Little Black Daydream by
Call Number: ebook
Publication Date: 2012-01-01
"Steve Kistulentz's second book of poems, Little Black Daydream, is a chronicle of post-capitalist America. With a precise ear for the American patois, it addresses the uncertainty of the future at the exact moment when those questions are at the forefront of our culture. The book teems with the dazzling detritus of desire, capitalism, and apocalypse-and the poems demonstrate an astonishing adeptness at pushing language to portray this strange moment in our histories, both the personal and the fantastical." -Carmen Gimnez Smith, author of The City She Was and Odalisque in Pieces.
The Luckless Age by
Call Number: PS3611.I875 L83 2011
Publication Date: 2011-02-01
Steve Kistulentz's The Luckless Age stands at the end of the nuclear era, bridging the Cold War's age of anxiety and the false hope of "morning in America." It's a landscape populated by the forgotten and marginalized, reported from the mosh pit and the boardroom, the bedroom and the bar. Its voice emerges above the white noise of modern broadcasting to paint a portrait of America at once brutal, honest, and yet hopeful at its core.
