Laurence Raab’s eighth poetry collection, Mistaking Each Other for Ghosts—a Longlist selection for the 2015 National Book Award in Poetry—is presented in an American idiom that is canny, sly, defeated, pessimistic, resilient, and perplexingly knowledgeable about the human predicament. Ralph Hamilton’s collection of poetry, Teaching a Man to Unstick His Tail, is a book about relationships, both with those closest to us and with ourselves. Beth Bachmann follows up her award-winning poetry collection, Temper, with Do Not Rise, which takes war as its central theme. Malachi Black‘s poems in Storm Toward Morning explore the physical and the metaphysical.
