Books Acquired Recently

Castaldi, Erin C., ed. Visiting the Wind: Haiku Society of America Members’ Anthology 2021. Haiku Society of America, 2021.

The HSA’s annual members’ anthology arrived a few days ago. Here is my poem from it: “Super Bowl Sunday / scrimmage / at the grocery store” (41).

Khakpour, Porochista. The Last Illusion. New York: Bloomsbury, 2014.

I love Khakpour’s memoirs, so I have decided to begin exploring her novels.

Kisner, Jordan. Thin Places: Essays from In Between. New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2020.

I was recently assigned one of Kisner’s essays in class, and it was good enough that I decided to buy her book. I read it this weekend and it is fantastic, immediately one of my favorite books.

Ortiz, Wendy C. Excavation: A Memoir. Portland: Future Tense Books, 2014.

A friend has been urging me to read this memoir for years, and I finally got around to buying it.
