New Releases! Cracked Altimeter by Joe Milford

Cracked Altimeter by Joe Milford

Joe Milford's Cracked Altimeter is fantastic. Each line is packed with such intense vividness and rhythm. Its overwhelming. Milford's labyrinthine constructions of language tear your head off and make you taste the colors of the imagery, leaving you begging for more. One of the best books of contemporary poetry I've read in a long time.

— Connor Stratman, author of Invisible Entrances and First Testament

Here are multitudes. In Joe Milford's hell-bent Cracked Altimeter, All the names of Heaven/become a universal phonetic. I'm grateful for his effusiveness; these hexed poems dispense grace enough to make even the warped and wayward begin to see again, and to believe. And its as if T. Roethke has been invited to participate in the first decade of this century. Marking transcendence is more of a challenge than ever and also endless play and fun for Milford and his readers. No one knows I have this psychic ray gun, he writes. But of course we do. One in the holster, one in his belt, and another, just in case, under his pillow.

—Steve Langan, author of Meet Me at the Happy Bar
