Off the Beaten Track
‘As fine a hai of ku as I have ever encountered’ — Les Murray
Off the Beaten Track presents new work by twelve writers taking part in a unique collaborative project. Each of them was invited to compose one haiku per day for a month, thus contributing towards the total of 365 haiku for a full calendar year. The result is a fascinating collection of glimpses into the lives of twelve highly distinctive writers through their observations of the minutiae of their daily activities and the world around them.
The Golden Rule
‘His influence is and will continue to be far-reaching’ — Michael Stipe
Relatively few people have read the poems of Ernest Noyes Brookings. Those that have invariably recognize something as valuable as it is rare: the voice of a true original.
Each poem circles around its subject matter with a mixture of clarity and chaos, applying a kind of dream logic to the semantic leaps from stanza to stanza (or frequently within a stanza). The poems always rhyme and the language is always simple, while the sensibility is conservative, almost quaintly so; and yet they seem as avant-garde as they are accessible.
