About The Hungry Man, Author and Educator Phillip McFarland writes: “West’s poetry is filled with pleasures: of varied subject matter; of fresh, apt imagery; of surprising yet always just diction; and a style without a feather of  padding—clean, concise, and accessible. And over it all hovers a poet’s heart filled with empathy and feeling. This collection provides us with moving experiences from first to last.”

(Won First Prize in the 2017 Orchard Street Press Chapbook Contest)

She describes herself as someone who “lives on the outskirts of the Milky Way in the Texas Hill Country, where she is an avid practitioner of Internet avoidance.”  What she does not avoid, however, is a love for language and the images that help share human experience with others. Consider the opening lines from “The Orchard Keeper: “Wonder if he’s still farming/the wind, the weathers,’ the feathers and petals, cold fragile harvest/of marginal land.”

Sales price: $12.00

“These contemplative poems are simple in construct and profound in impact as the poet’s world is tempered through eyes of his adult self. The poems grow slowly more philosophical: the dazed fly crawling on a window pane becomes a metaphor for his father, a caged bird a metaphor for the writer. You will nod, you will shake your head, you will smile, and you will return to these poems again.

Ann Howells, Editor of Illya’s Honey

The Orchard Street Press is pleased to announce the release of Twenty Small Worlds, an exceptional new collection of sonnets by Mark Louis Lehman of Cincinnati.

Noted American poet Annie Finch has written: "Rosetti expresses one of the most useful powers of the sonnet: the ability to keep a moment, to hold a feeling or experience and turn it around in the light of our awareness until many facets are evident. This multifaceted quality gives the sonnet a paradoxical feeling of freedom and expanse within confines.....It also helps explain the lasting appeal of the sonnet, the form that Rita Dove has called a 'little world." Mr. Lehman's poems here offer us twenty such 'expansive confines.'

Len Herrick, former Poet Laureate of Fresno, writes: “Vanishing Point is a pure delight: each poem is full of grace and wonder about our relationship with the natural world, exploring astonishment and certainty, belief and memory, and damage and repair.” Award-winning poet Corrine Clegg Hales, says: “This is an extraordinary new collection by a poet who has mastered her craft and who speaks of life in this world with precision, grace, and often startling clarity.”

Sales price: $12.00
