$16.00 Paperback, 978-0-9899797-2-6

The newest by award-winning author Hadara Bar-Nadav

Hadara Bar-Nadav’s radiant new collection of poetry, The New Nudity, shocks everyday objects to life. In these chiseled, electrically-charged poems, a ladder, wineglass, and spine ignite into being. With a nod to Francis Ponge, Gertrude Stein, and Pablo Neruda, Bar-Nadav’s poems have a heartbeat all their own, small miracles that haunt and heave.

Reviews / Endorsements

“A bracing pruning of form down to its minimalist essence, a sharp knife trimming away dead branches. The point of view is always shifting, sometimes speaking as the object, sometimes to the object, and sometimes transubstantiating, perhaps to something like the voice of a god.”—Peter Stitt
