Congrats to Spring Ulmer

Kore Press First Book Winner for 2007
Selected by Sonia Sanchez

Benjamin's Spectacles

"Walter Benjamin had the heart of a poet, and always served the imagination
first. Spring Ulmer finds him there, in the imagination, and recognizes him as
another being of language--of angels and demons. This is poetry from the world
Benjamin left behind, with all its unspeakable delights and terrors,
conspiracies and heartbreaks--'thimblefuls of relation' and 'inner
conversations' among a host of 'disoriented survivors.' This is poetry
'unhanging itself,' unburying itself into being."

--David Levi Strauss

Spring Ulmer reads from her new book Benjamin's Spectacles, winner of the 2007
Kore Press First Book Award, selected by Sonia Sanchez.
