Item: The two new Monk Books Chapbooks are available online at monk-books.com. I'm just so damned proud to put out books of good poetry. Ben Pease and Bernadette Mayer, and Mark Strand. Three kick-ass poets who I would totally be stuck on a desert island with. The books are going to be worth millions one day, and be listed on the back of the New York Times Book Review at the rare book auctions right beside Beatrix Potter.
*Joe Weil, Ben Pease, Simone Kearney with Wichman Cometh
