AFRICA WOMAN - THE POETIC PERSPECTIVE The collection is a chronicle of the life and times of the woman in Africa as seen from the eyes of one of their kind. It encapsulates in poetic form, the African woman's major social, economic and political struggle for relevance. As Professor Harry Garuba of the University of Ibadan put it in his introduction to the collection, 'As the twentieth century winds up to a close, issues of gender and the rights of minorities have come to the foreground in the battles for equal rights for women and the struggle to protect the rights of minorities and the environment. The race consciousness engendered by the civil rights movements has, ... created a much wider awareness of the rights of all segments of society silenced by the dominant establishments everywhere.' The collection with 49 poems was published just two years after the 1995 Beijing Conference that unequivocally recognized the rights of women to freedom from discrimination and 'fits into a growing world-wide trend. The poet positions herself as a chronicler of daily life in all its manifold manifestations rather than as a saber-rattling warrior of the women's movement or racial disenchantment. The poems range freely through themes of love and relationships, both monogamous and polygamous, the wicked ways of in-laws and the comfort of friendship; there are poems of procreation and poems of protestation, poems of reflection and poems of resolution. Through all these we never lose the thinking, feeling human being in a maze of slogans... The emotional stoicism of "Another Time", the nostalgic lyrical recall and reminiscence of "Twenty Thousand Days and More" and the ironic observation on polygamy recorded in "Iyawo Mi" (meaning 'my wife' in Yoruba language) are all instances of a personalized rather than a collectivized response to issue, events and emotions. ' (Introduction by Professor Harry Garuba)

In Comfort Measures Only, Rafael Campo bears witness to the unspeakable beauty bound up with human suffering. Gathered from his over twenty-year career as a poet-physician, these eighty-nine poems--thirty-one of which have never been previously published in a collection--pull back the curtain in the ER, laying bare our pain and joining us all in spellbinding moments of pathos. The poet, who is also truly a healer, revives language itself--its sounds channeled through our hearts and lungs, its rhythms amplified through the stethoscope--to make meaning of our bewilderment when our bodies so eloquently and yet wordlessly fail us. Campo's transcendent poems, in all their modernity amidst the bleep of heart monitors and the wail of ambulance sirens, remind us of what the ancients understood: that poetry sustains us, and whether we live or die, through what we can imagine and create in our shared voices we may yet achieve immortality.

From the acclaimed author of “the most compelling new series in crime fiction” (Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author) comes “a sharply observed novel” (New York Times) that explores race, law enforcement, and justice in mid-century Atlanta.
Officer Denny Rakestraw and “Negro Officers” Lucius Boggs and Tommy Smith have their hands full in an overcrowded and rapidly changing Atlanta. It’s 1950 and racial tensions are simmering as black families, including Smith’s sister, begin moving into formerly all-white neighborhoods. When Rake’s brother-in-law launches a scheme to rally the Ku Klux Klan to “save” their neighborhood, his efforts spiral out of control, forcing Rake to choose between loyalty to family or the law.
Across town, Boggs and Smith try to shut down the supply of white lightning and drugs into their territory, finding themselves up against more powerful foes than they’d expected. Battling corrupt cops and ex-cons, Nazi brown shirts and rogue Klansmen, the officers are drawn closer to the fires that threaten to consume the city once again.
With echoes of Walter Mosley and Dennis Lehane, Mullen “expands the boundaries of crime fiction, weaving in eye-opening details from our checkered history” (Chicago Tribune).
