You Are Here: New York City Streets in Poetry

YouAreHere

Editors: Peggy Garrison, Victoria Hallerman & David Quintavalle
164 pages, 5 b/w illustrations 2006

‘It’s a collection that has the feel of the classic old-time New York City bookstore, where the floorboards creak, the springs in the overstuffed chair in the corner by the radiator gave out in 1962, and the books are delicious enough to make you spend all your lunch money on them. In other words, this book is steeped in atmosphere.’ —Home Planet News review

All five boroughs are represented by over 60 poets. Lighthearted or sober at times the authors explore the sense of neighborhood, or their feelings of nostalgia, loss or discovery. While taking the streets as its subject this collection ends up being about the people who walk them.

‘Put on your sneakers and head for the streets!’

Connections: New York City Bridges in Poetry

Connections cover 01

Editors: Peggy Garrison & David Quintavalle
132 Pages, 8 b/w illustrations 2012

The third installment in P & Q Press’ New York focused poetry anthologies, Connections includes a wide range of poetic styles and voices that both celebrate the bridges and explore the metephor of crossing from one place to another—physically, mentally or emotionally.

From the editors’ introduction—

‘..bridges remain as metaphor for connection and disconnection, often being taken granted until one fails or is closed for repair and our lives become more complicated. The poems chosen for this anthology explore this metaphor or in many cases just celbrate the engineering miracle of the bridges themselves.’
