Devil's snake curve : a fan's notes from left field / Josh Ostergaard. ...
"The Devil's Snake Curve offers an alternative American history, in which colonialism, jingoism, capitalism, and faith are represented by baseball. Personal and political, it twines Japanese internment camps with the Yankees; Walmart with the Kansas City Royals; and facial hair patterns with militarism, Guantanamo, and the modern security state. An essay, a miscellany, and a passionate unsettling of Josh Ostergaard's relationship with our national pastime, it allows for both the clover of a childhood outfield and the persistence of the game's service to those in power. America and baseball are both hard to love or leave in this, by turns coruscating and heartfelt, debut.Josh Ostergaard holds an MFA in creative writing from the University of Minnesota and an MA in cultural anthropology. He has been an urban anthropologist at the Field Museum and now works at Graywolf Press. "-- Provided by publisher.

Where away / by George Sessions Perry and Isabel Leighton. ...
"'Corridor' is a study of motion and time. Its glanced landscapes, its lives seen in passing, render the immeasurable in broken narratives. Saskia Hamilton's poems travel quickly with unexpected distances within their reach. They are dauntless and alert in their apprehension of the natural kingdom at the frontier of so many unnatural ones. They inhabit the realm of contemplation, which, for Hamilton, is charged with eros."--Back cover.
