AWP, Chicago 2012 (2)

All the books I came back with, alphabetical by author. I’m starving for work that’s not from an american context, so I cracked out on books in translation (*). My new favorite presses that I wasn’t previously familiar with: Zephyr Press and Open Letter Books. They have incredible catalogs. I also bought a bunch of books from presses friends had started that I wanted to support….
