art-of-daring If-the-Tabloids-are-True

Some exciting August goodies have arrived. From the wondrous mind of Matthea Harvey comes If the Tabloids are True What are You? ($25 Graywolf Press), a fascinating collection of both her art and her poetry. Also recent from Graywolf is an addition to their consistently fine Art of essay series on craft, this latest from the gracefully provocative Carl Phillips and titled The Art of Daring: Risk, Restlessness, Imagination. Good reading to be had as the summer wanes.
