I recently had the very good fortune to receive in the mail a package from Seattle. It contained one book of poetry in translation, Kim Hyesoon’s Mommy Must be a Fountain of Feathers, translated by Don Mee Choi, and a book of her own poetry, The Morning News is Exciting. Both books are published by Action Books, who are new to me, but seem to be doing exciting things. I’ve not yet finished reading the books, but I’m halway through Morning News and would definitely recommend it. More to come later.
In other news, my review of the latest Southerly is up on Cordite.
