              Although Amber Tamblyn is best known as the star of the smash hit Joan of Arcadia, she is a serious poet, mentored by Jack Hirshman, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and other San Francisco Beat poets. She has self-published two chapbooks, and her poems have appeared in books published by ...City Lights. Here is her first collection of poems specifically for teens. The poems relate to teen issues such as love and relationships, and all are influenced by Amber's feminist sensibility. An introduction by Jack Hirshman puts her poetry in a literary context, and her personal introduction gives insight into her poems and helps readers access them. Amber's celebrity will help bring the value of poetry to a new, wider audience.

              This book is simply a treasure. Carol Tarlen's poems bring the human and political together in rich, heart-felt ways. I can't help wishing Carol was still with us, but we should all be extremely grateful to have this fine collection of her work out in the world as a legacy and tr...ibute to her compassion for others, and her passion for writing and for life. She had an uncompromising commitment to the truth without sentimentality or condescension. Carol Tarlen was a Straight Shooter. In Nellie Perkiss Speaks Her Mind, she writes The news don't never tell the way it really is. Well, Carol Tarlen always told things the way they really are. These poems deserve a wide and diverse readership-read this book, and pass it on. -Jim Daniels, Poet & Professor, Carnegie Mellon University Born of pink-collar solidarity, Carol Tarlen's activist poems speak up, sass back, and never, ever cross a picket line. Keep this book next to your heart when standing up for workers. With Tillie Olsen and Meridel LeSueur, Every Day Is an Act of Resistance belongs on every bookshelf in America. -Karen Kovacik, Poet Laureate of Indiana Tough girl, quiet Quaker, brilliant poet, worker for the working-class, Carol Tarlen punctured the masks of bourgeois insularity-but with grace, good humor, and more kindness than many deserve. Her luminous poetic voice is large, direct, high-steppin, and justice-driven. Go ahead join the Angels Liberation Front and read her poetry, teach it to your children. -Janet Zandy, Professor of Language & Literature, Rochester Institute of Technology

              The Viet Arcane
                

              The Viet Arcane (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The Viet Arcane is a poetic vision of the Viet Nam War written in the early 1970's. It was inspired by a book by Rene Depestre, A Rainbow for the Christian West, in which a series of poems enacts an invasion by the Vodou Loas - or Haitian gods and goddesses - into the southern an...d most reactionary part of the United States. Hirschman imagines a similar invasion manifested by Vietnamese Mediums who follow the Dao Mau (the Worship of the Mother) religion. He strives to remind us that the war in Vietnam, although now history, was the major catastrophe of its time and must not be forgotten by future generations. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Jack Hirschman was born in 1933 in New York City and grew up in The Bronx. A copyboy with the Associated Press in New York, his first brush with fame came from a letter Ernest Hemingway wrote to him, published after Hemingway's death as A Letter to a Young Writer. He was a popular and innovative professor at UCLA in the 1970s, before he was fired for his anti-war activities. Hirschman is a member of the League of Revolutionaries for a New America (LRNA), a founding member of the Revolutionary Poets Brigade and the World Poetry Movement, the fourth emeritus poet of the city of San Francisco, and poet in residence with the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library.

By turns tender, loving, angry, satiric, these are passionate poems that grab you... by the collar by Italy's best-known working-class poet - skillfully crafted, clear, and filled with powerful images.

              [Doreen] has become an expert at controlling the speeds of her poems, and this automotive aspect of poetic expression is not something to be scoffed at- not simply because most people's minds spend an hour or two a day in motion in cars, but because that motion and the inner work...ings of mind and heart have played important parts in shaping or reshaping our poetry. -Jack Hirschman From the introduction
