Melancholy Is When I Leave YouMelancholy Is When I Leave You

A poetic memoir that dares to shine a light on the harsh reality of what it is like to have a loved one on Death Row in America. EXTRAORDINARY PRAISE for Melancholy is When I Leave You: “Read this book. It is an important addition to the canon on Capital Punishment and prison. You won’t be the same after reading Melancholy is When I Leave You. Angela Derrick is a stellar wordsmith. Her poems are edgy and concise; beautiful and provocative. This is an amazing work, destined to become a classic." --Sister Helen Prejean, author of DEAD MAN WALKING.

Into the Great BlueInto the Great Blue

This collection of poems traces the arc of a day, a season, inspired by a month of daily seaside walks along meadow and shore in Westport, Massachusetts. From the linguistically light-hearted to the profoundly personal, these poems evoke spirit, history and wisdom.

Down DeepDown Deep

Down Deep, the second poetry chapbook written by Mary Anne Reese in as many years, is made of summer afternoons, learning to swim, white-water rafting, crabbing, sunning near water--but always at the edge of risk and revelation. Seeking and longing drive many of the poems down deep to capture the heart of the matter, what we need to know, what we might learn to live for and die for--tugging at the mysterious line: "teach us / to live / with brevity." These poems are prayers of desire.
