Haram by Antony Fangary is a chapbook-length collection of poems & prayers.
“Through even psychic journeys home, Fangary quarries the oaths we have grown numb to. Hiding from no one, here is a wanderer who has written poems on the film layer of his eyes. In the war and peace of imperialist myth, poems written on behalf of we who don’t exist. And gentle paper for the prayers of our grandmothers’ tongues.”
-Tongo Eisen-Martin, author of the American Book Award winning
“Antony Fangary has a unique and harrowing American story to tell. His masterstroke as author was to alternate Coptic prayers with personal revelation: “my father was proud of my skin when I was born / my mother says he showed me to everyone in the hospital / a brown man with a son white as an ostrich egg / the American dream // Lord, look with / Merciful eyes / At my weakness / At my disgrace.” This book is the perfect example of the literature we should be reading, to open our eyes to the world and thereby to know ourselves.”
-Paul Hoover, editor of Postmodern American Poetry: A Norton Anthology

This Frayed Universe is a chapbook of poems by Sarah Brashear. It describes our heavy and beautiful world and the crisis of the ordinary human coping with the everyday effects of life. Brashear’s rich language shows that not only is being a person a blessing, but at times, an unexpected disaster. Through her strong images, she is able to illustrate what many other authors have also shown—that within the unordinary is the ordinary, and that perhaps this insanity we diagnose in others is actually our sanity.
Sarah Brashear lives in Pennsylvania and has an MFA in Creative Writing from Chatham University. Her first full-length book of poetry, On Beacon Street, was published by Cawing Crow Press. She is currently a writing instructor at Lebanon Valley College. When she isn’t writing or teaching, she enjoys playing tennis and going to concerts.
