by Pier Paolo Pasolini
Pier Paolo Pasolini was a major cultural figure in post-WWII Italy, well-known as a poet, novelist, communist intellectual, and filmmaker. "In Danger" is the first anthology in English devoted to his political and literary essays, with a generous selection of his poetry. Against the backdrop of post-war Italy, and through the mid-'70s, Pasolini's writings provide a fascinating portrait of a Europe in which fascists and communists violently clashed for power and where journalists ran great risks. The controversial and openly gay Pasolini was murdered at the age of fifty-three; "In Danger" includes his final interview, conducted hours before his death.

April is National Poetry Month
National Poetry Month is a month-long, national celebration of poetry established by the Academy of American Poets in 1996. The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern. We hope to increase the visibility and availability of poetry in popular culture while acknowledging and celebrating poetry’s ability to sustain itself in the many places where it is practiced and appreciated.
"Between Eden and the Open Road"
By Philip Gaber
This collection of poems builds its momentum in the concrete world, one filled with hospital rooms, canned food, cigarettes, old films and Holiday Inns. Gaber reaches for the real and the undressed inside of conversations, portraits, and even seemingly poignant moments that offer glimmers of grace and humorous humility.
Readers with a beat sensibility and a desire to wander the crowded roads and alleyways of people’s minds will find much to enjoy here.
