Lightning Falls in Love

Inventive, if more unsettling than whimsical, these top-notch poems acutely observe an unpredictable world. Highly recommended.


The Infinitesimals

Is Kasischke dreaming of traversing the layers of hell and meeting Sylvia Plath? Or is she just letting her mind wander? And if so, where is it going? Where is each poem going? At their best, the pieces here see inside the inside of things, but often they just get lost in their own thought.

Mind of Winter

Winner of a National Book Critics Circle Award for her poetry, Kasischke also writes fine fiction; this novel is up for France's Prix Médicis étranger, and Kasischke's writing has been compared to that of Joyce Carol Oates. Like Mona Simpson (Anywhere but Here), Kasischke vividly depicts a woman's tormented inner world. [See Prepub Alert, 10/21/13.]

If a Stranger Approaches You

Written with her trademark lyrical prose and innovative use of narrative, this collection of intelligently crafted stories will satisfy Kasischke fans and short story lovers alike. Highly recommended.
