"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

nate-prittsNate Pritts, author of Post Human, from A-Minor Press is this week’s recommended read. He is the author of eight books of poetry, including Revenant Tracer, which won the 42 Miles Press Poetry Award and will be published in the fall of 2017. Nate is the Director and Founding Editor of H_NGM_N (2001), an independent publishing house that started as a mimeograph ‘zine and which has grown to encompass an annual online journal, an occasional digital chapbook series, a continuing series of single-author books and sporadic limited edition/low-fi projects.

His most recent collection is Post Human (2016) which Publishers Weekly says “leads readers through a poetic dystopia that reveals the fragility of the human relationship with technology. Weaving his poems together as a meditative critique of technology and its numbing effect on the everyday, Pritts asks readers to imagine other possibilities amid ‘this daily flood/ of ephemera, this electronic life.'”

Publishers Weekly described his fifth book, Sweet Nothing (2011), as “both baroque and irreverent, banal and romantic, his poems […] arrive at a place of vulnerability and sincerity.” POETRY Magazine called The Wonderfull Yeare (2009), “rich, vivid, intimate, & somewhat troubled” while The Rumpus called Big Bright Sun(2010) “a textual record of mistakes made and insights gleaned…[in] a voice that knows its part in self-destruction.”

Nate Pritts is Associate Professor at Ashford University where he serves as Curriculum Lead and Administrative head of the Film program.
