Warsaw Bikini reviewed in the Jerusalem Post

To move through the pages of Sandra Simonds's collection of poetry, Warsaw Bikini, is to move with intent, with care, as though you were walking through a minefield. [...I]t varies from lead to helium, from apocalyptic and Holocaust imagery to pop culture references, often within the boundaries of one poem.

Bloof on the charts

Both Warsaw Bikini* and My Zorba make Black Ocean's Best of 2008 list. Nice!

And perhaps we forgot to note that both My Zorba and For Girls (& Others) made Coldfront's list for Best Second Book too?

Our benefit bundle sale is still in effect, hint hint.

* Technically, Warsaw Bikini has a 2009 release date (March). That's when it will be available via the distributor. But we printed it with a 2008 copyright date and it's available from us now, so it's all good!
