auschwitz of the digital age and other poems (new cognitive poetry) by frank thomas rosen
auschwitz of the digital age is a bracing book that casts a sidelong glance at contemporary American life, bearing witness to the failure of the grand experiment in democracy. Rosen doesn’t shy away from the quotidian horrors of 21st century America: racism, gun violence, opioid addiction, the healthcare crisis, pollution, our dependence on the news cycle and digital technology—which he catalogues with measured, concrete language.
—Stephan Delbos, author of Light Reading

The Skinny Poetry Journal edited by Truth Thomas
If we think of jazz as a true American art form, then we have to pay homage to The Skinny, which follows in the African American tradition of The Bop, invented by Afaa Michael Weaver, and predates The Gigan, created by Ruth Ellen Kocher. While these are true American art forms, The Skinny stands alone as the first to have a collected anthology of work that demonstrates the dexterity and muscle of this slim poetic art form. The poems range in themes from the political, the musical, the personal to the sentimental. These slender jewels pack a dynamite punch that will knock your socks into the middle of next week as these diverse voices sing to a crescendo.
— Dr. Randall Horton, author of Hook: A Memoir
