The Selected Poems of Donald Hall
By Donald Hall
By Simon Mawer
(Other Press, 9781590517239, paper, $15.95)
(Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 9780544555600, $22
“This is a gift of honesty, intimacy, and the pure
genius that is Donald Hall, as he hand-picks
what he considers to be the best of his poetry
from more than 70 years of published works.
From this former U.S. Poet Laureate comes one
essential volume of his works, where ‘Ox-Cart
Man’ sits alongside ‘Kicking the Leaves’ and ‘Without’. As he is
no longer writing poetry, this ‘concise gathering of my life’s work’
is the perfect introduction to Hall’s literary contributions, as well as
closure for his many ardent followers.”

Wild Swans:
Three Daughters of China
By Jung Chang
(Touchstone, 9780743246989, $18)
Originally published in hardcover in 1991
“The wrenching swiftness of
cultural change in China comes
alive in Jung Chang’s memoir of
3 generations of women in her
family. Her grandmother’s feet are bound as a baby to
secure her future as a general’s concubine, while her
parents must routinely demonstrate their loyalty to
Mao’s Communist Party above their family. Chang herself is inducted into the Red Guard while her parents
suffer re-education during the Cultural Revolution.
The rapid changes play out with devastating force in
this memorable book.”

Originally published in hardcover in
By Edward P. Jones
“The stories of Edward P. Jones
are deeply grounded in the geography of Washington, D.C.—in the
black side of the city, not the “land
of white people,” as one character
puts it. For all their realism, these stories have the
quality of fables, summing up lives and their consequences (not necessarily the ones they’ve earned) in
an astonishing way that’s made him the District’s most
essential writer.”
—Tom Nissley, Phinney Books, Seattle, WA
By Anthony Doerr
“Having fled the wife and child he
loves to prevent a death his dreams
have forecast, David Winkler
washes up in the Caribbean, where
he is becalmed for 25 years before
returning in search of them—and of redemption. We
grow to care for this lost dreamer and for the natural
world he inhabits, bewitched as always by Doerr’s dazzling prose and his abiding compassion.”
—Betsy Burton, The King’s English Bookshop,
Salt Lake City, Utah
