The Zoo at Night (Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Poetry)

by Susan Gubernat

Winner of the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Poetry, Susan Gubernat’s The Zoo at Night reflects with subtle craft on the dark side of love, death, the family romance, carnality, and lofty aspirations. She thinks of her poems as “night thoughts” resembling nocturnes, in which “a bit of light leaks in.” Both experimental and classic, Gubernat’s poems combine formal and free verse elements. A (mostly) unrhymed sonnet sequence seeks to recall the world of a pre-digital childhood when physical objects—tactile, mechanical—took on totemic import and magical significance. Other poems echo the Rilkean principle that poetry can be empathetic by looking outward at the “thingness” of the world. In these works of love and longing, Gubernat enters through the doors of craft and exits with feeling.

The Zoo

by J. A. Tyler

The Zoo

by Christopher Wilson

Patrick deWitt meets Catch 22, when a guileless young boy gets mixed up in Stalin's inner circle.There are certain things that Yuri Zipit knows:1. That being official food-taster for the Great Leader of the Soviet Union requires him to drink too much vodka for a twelve-year-old.2. That you do not have to be an Elephantologist to see that the Great Leader is dying.3. Yuri's father is somewhere here in the Dacha.4. It's a crime to love your family more than you love Socialism, the Party or the Republic.5. That, because of his damaged mind, everyone thinks Yuri is a fool.But Yuri isn't. He sits quietly through excessive state dinners and witnesses it all--betrayals, body doubles, buffoonery. He's starting to get the hang of this politics thing, but there's so much to learn. Who knew that a man could be in five places at once? That someone could break your nose as a sign of friendship? That people could be disinvented?The Zoo is a cutting satire, told through the refreshing voice of one gutsy boy who will not give up on hope.

zonsondergang nachten

by Sharon Kleve

Fiona Paxton verliet Sunset Beach op de dag dat ze afstudeerde van de middelbare school en keek nooit meer achterom. Werken als modeontwerper in Los Angeles, Californië, is alles wat ze ooit wilde. Tien jaar later wil Fiona meer dan alleen geld - ze wil een zorgzame man. Niet iemand die zich meer zorgen maakt over hoe wit zijn tanden zijn of dat zijn spray-tan een touch-up nodig heeft, dan over haar. Trip Delacruz gaf de grote stad op om zich te settelen in Sunset Beach om zijn bijen te verzorgen en honing te maken. Eén blik op Fiona en Trip is verslaafd. Haar kastanjebruine haar en blauwe ogen schitteren als ze praat over de renovatie van het Sunset Beach Resort. Hij zou alles geven als Fiona hem elke avond zou bekijken zoals ze bij de zonsondergang doet.

Zong!: As Told To The Author By Setaey Adamu Boateng (Wesleyan Poetry Series)

by Setaey Adamu Boateng M. NourbeSe Philip

In November, 1781, the captain of the slave ship Zong ordered that some 150 Africans be murdered by drowning so that the ship’s owners could collect insurance monies. <P><P>Relying entirely on the words of the legal decision Gregson v. Gilbert—the only extant public document related to the massacre of these African slaves—Zong! tells the story that cannot be told yet must be told. Equal parts song, moan, shout, oath, ululation, curse, and chant, Zong! excavates the legal text. <P><P>Memory, history, and law collide and metamorphose into the poetics of the fragment. Through the innovative use of fugal and counterpointed repetition, Zong! becomes an anti-narrative lament that stretches the boundaries of the poetic form, haunting the spaces of forgetting and mourning the forgotten. <<P><P>Check for the online reader’s companion at http://zong.site.wesleyan.edu.

Zone Yellow

by Keith Laumer

Brion Bayard, once of our own timeline and now Imperium Agent extraordinaire, had been on some pretty dangerous missions before - but never had he encountered so noxious a foe as the invading legions of giant plague-ridden rats who walked like men, spreading disease across the miltiple universes of the Imperium. Unless Bayard can travel to the original world of the long-tailed invaders and stop the plague at its source, the Earth of the Imperium and all the other Earths in all the universes will fall before the verminous hordes from a timeline that should never have existed in the first place.

Zone One: A Novel

by Colson Whitehead

In this wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a pandemic has devastated the planet. The plague has sorted humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Now the plague is receding, and Americans are busy rebuild­ing civilization under orders from the provisional govern­ment based in Buffalo. Their top mission: the resettlement of Manhattan. Armed forces have successfully reclaimed the island south of Canal Street--aka Zone One--but pockets of plague-ridden squatters remain. While the army has eliminated the most dangerous of the infected, teams of civilian volunteers are tasked with clearing out a more innocuous variety--the "malfunctioning" stragglers, who exist in a catatonic state, transfixed by their former lives. Mark Spitz is a member of one of the civilian teams work­ing in lower Manhattan. Alternating between flashbacks of Spitz's desperate fight for survival during the worst of the outbreak and his present narrative, the novel unfolds over three surreal days, as it depicts the mundane mission of straggler removal, the rigors of Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder, and the impossible job of coming to grips with the fallen world. And then things start to go wrong. Both spine chilling and playfully cerebral, Zone One bril­liantly subverts the genre's conventions and deconstructs the zombie myth for the twenty-first century.From the Hardcover edition.
