Description : From Sleep Unbound portrays the life of Samya, an Egyptian woman who is taken at age 15 from her Catholic boarding school and forced into a loveless and humiliating marriage. Eventually sundered from every human attachment, Samya lapses into despair and despondence, and finally an emotionally caused paralysis. But when she shakes off the torpor of sleep, the sleep of avoidance, she awakens to action with the explosive energy of one who has been reborn.

Description : At the Border of Wilshire & Nobody, winner of the 2015 Howling Bird Press Poetry Prize, features California poet Marci Vogels vivid explorations of memory, family, loss, and life across intersections of contemporary landscapes and cultures, at home and abroad. Divided into three sections, her book considers moments small and large, personal and universal, through poems of myriad forms, outlooks, and styles. Reflecting the curiosity and restlessness of their itinerant author, Vogels poems observe quiet moments amid larger spaces, domestic and foreign, offering readers extraordinary insights into seemingly ordinary lives and times. With keen eye and playful ear, Marci Vogel engages and embraces the world in spirited, loving, grace-filled fashion. An impressive debut collection, At the Border of Wilshire & Nobody was selected as the inaugural book published by Howling Bird Press of Minneapolis.
