Books Acquired Recently

Chen, Chen. When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities. Rochester, NY: BOA Editions, 2017.

Chen gave a poetry reading at Utica College this past week and I loved his work, so I bought a copy of his debut full-length collection.

Wiebe, Armin. Grandmother, Laughing. Winnipeg: Turnstone Press, 2017.

Wiebe is a member of the first generation of Mennonite writers whose career dates from the early 1980s. However, I’ve only read one of his books, The Salvation of Yasch Siemens. I decided that it was time to remedy this situation.

Yuknavitch, Lidia. The Chronology of Water. Portland, OR: Hawthorne Books, 2010.

A student of mine told me about this queer memoir, which looks incredibly fascinating. I purchased a copy from’s network of independent booksellers.
