In this collection, her first, Irina Dimitric ponders over her journey through life, from childhood in her wartime homeland to migrating to Australia in 1964. Her poems reveal her dreams and disappointments, joy and pain, the value of forgiveness and gratitude, her love of nature and her love of laughter without which, she maintains, life would be unbearable. Writing poetry and photography, her pastimes born at the time she cared for her aging mother, help her to make sense of the world and to go on loving life. She loves both free verse and form poetry, the latter learnt from her mentor Susan Budig at Mindful Poetry on Gather.com, who also baptised Irina's creation of a new form of tercet–tercetonine, consisting of 3 lines: the first two lines rhyme; the third line contains a leonine or internal rhyme. See Holden Barina (p. 40) Encouraged by Susan to submit her poems for publication, this poem is among her poems published online and in print by Narrator Australia Volume Two. Another two tercetonines appear in this collection: Just an Ordinary Garden (p. 8) and Cloud Gazing (p. 32), the latter published by Narrator Australia Volume Three. Of all the forms set out as challenges by Susan Budig, chant royal was the most difficult one. Susan assured her students that if they succeeded in mastering it, they would positively glow. Irina says she still glows whenever she reads The Ploughing of Marko Kralyevich with a Twist (p. 36). Prince Marko and his horse Sarac (pronounced Shahratz, meaning piebald) were her favourite characters when as a child, sitting on her father's lap, she listened to him reading the poems about the Serbian battles against the Ottoman Turks. The title of the book is the title of the poem on page 28, written as a response to the challenge on Gather.com: write a poem about winter, but in warm Sydney she could only dream about winter. Her connection with her homeland and Europe is very strong in her memory and in her heart. The photographs which accompany some of the poems were all taken between 2011 and 2014 except for the following three photos: Irina with her mother on p. 18 sent to her father, who was in a POW camp in Germany; Irina's father on p. 19 during the Anzac March in Sydney in 1989; Irina with her friend Nada on p. 38, who also appears as Nelly with her brother Joe in the poem The Silver Stream (p. 29), remembering their happy childhood. She has found online an outlet for her creative expression and is grateful for the friendships she has formed in cyberspace and all the good things in this life on earth. The book ends aptly with Prayers of Gratitude.

Mr. West covers the main events in superstar Kanye West’s life while also following the poet on her year spent researching, writing, and pregnant. The book explores how we are drawn to celebrities—to their portrayal in the media—and how we sometimes find great private meaning in another person’s public story, even across lines of gender and race. Blake’s aesthetics take her work from prose poems to lineated free verse to tightly wound lyrics to improbably successful sestinas. The poems fully engage pop culture as a strange, complicated presence that is revealing of America itself. This is a daring debut collection and a groundbreaking work. An online reader’s companion will be available at http://sarahblake.site.wesleyan.edu.

The Swedish artist couple Mamma Andersson (born 1962) and Jockum Nordstr�m (born 1963) have been at the forefront of contemporary figurative painting since the late 1980s. Updating Vuillard for a post- Hitchcock age, Andersson paints beguilingly eerie untenanted interiors and landscapes. Nordstr�m's detailed collages, paintings and drawings occupy a more folkloric realm peopled by historical and contemporary characters enacting sexual and social roles across broad narrative panoramas. Who Is Sleeping on My Pillow showcases Andersson and Nordstr�m's work from the late 1980s to the present day in over 260 full-colour plates. Alongside these, it also includes family snapshots and source materials, texts by Paolo Colombo and Anders Kr�ger, a poem by Stig Claesson and an interview with Nordstr�m by Marcel Dzama.

Clouds, mountains, flowering trees. Difficult things. Things lost by being photographed. Things that have lost their power. Things found in a rural grocery store. These are some of the lists, poems, prose poems, and lyric anecdotes compiled in The Logan Notebooks, a remix and a reimagining of The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon, a collection of intimate and imaginative observations about place—a real place, an interior landscape—and identity, at the intersection of the human with the world, and the language we have (and do not yet have) for perceiving it.

From the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature and author of the Booker Prize–winning novel The Remains of the Day In the face of the misery in his homeland, the artist Masuji Ono was unwilling to devote his art solely to the celebration of physical beauty. Instead, he put his work in the service of the imperialist movement that led Japan into World War II. Now, as the mature Ono struggles through the aftermath of that war, his memories of his youth and of the "floating world"—the nocturnal world of pleasure, entertainment, and drink—offer him both escape and redemption, even as they punish him for betraying his early promise. Indicted by society for its defeat and reviled for his past aesthetics, he relives the passage through his personal history that makes him both a hero and a coward but, above all, a human being.
