Mierau, Maurice. How Mind and Body Move: The Poetry of Patrick Friesen. Victoria, BC: Frog Hollow Press, 2018.
I recently encountered a citation of this book in Magdalene Redekop’s Making Believe and ordered it immediately. According to the book’s “Colophon,” it was “published in a limited edition of 100 copies,” so I am glad that there was still one left for me because Friesen is one of the foundational figures of Mennonite poetry and I have long enjoyed his work. My copy is numbered 86.
Rosaldo, Renato. The Chasers. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2019.
I received a promotional email about this book of poetry when it was published, and it sounded fascinating, so I kept it in mind. I ordered it last month during Duke University Press’s 50% off sale and it came a few days ago.
