This Just In: Books!!!

There’s an in-stock list below, but no featured record this week…

Did you know that besides records we also sell a selection of books from local writers and publishers? The titles come and go since many are smaller runs, but this week we have five new titles in, which is definitely a number worthy of mention. Four come from Jai-Alai Books, and one is conceptualized by Erick Lyle (AKA Iggy Scam). Here they are in alphabetical order):

Eight Miami Poets
Eight Miami Poets is an anthology of young, unpublished poets currently living in Miami, FL. Featuring work by, in alphabetical order, Annik Adey-Babinski, Zain Aslam, Legna Rodríguez Iglesias, Fabienne Sylvia Josaphat, Yaddyra Peralta, Cherry Pickman, Sarah Trudgeon, and Nick Vagnoni.

Last Night I Dreamt I Was A DJ / Anoche soñé que era un DJ
By Frank Báez
Translations by P. Scott Cunningham and Hoyt Rogers

Last Night I Dreamt I Was a DJ (2014), is the debut volume of poetry in America by Frank Báez, presented in the original Spanish with English translations by P. Scott Cunningham and Hoyt Rogers. A former resident of Chicago, Báez delights in the cultural influence of the United States, while simultaneously recognizing the failed exportation of the American dream to his home of Santo Domingo, where his lyrical wit and narrative lament takes center-stage. Báez’s poems are heartfelt and hilarious. They laugh at the spectacle of their creator and his struggle to exist as a poet in a world hostile to poetry, and they dare to talk back to the empire of capitalism with the voices of the voiceless.

My First Bikini
By Elena Medel
Translated by Lizzie Davis
My First Bikini is the United States debut of acclaimed Spanish poet Elena Medel. Originally published in 2002 as Mi primer bikini (DVD), the collection was written by Medel at the age of 16 and won the Andalucía Joven Prize for Poetry. In 2013, Medel won the Loewe Young Poets Prize, Spain’s most prestigious award for a poet under 30, for her collection Chatterton (Visor, 2014). She also publishes and edits La Bella Varsovia, a literary imprint at the forefront of Europe’s youth poetry movement.

Streetopia (yes, this counts because Erick Lyle used to live down here and is an important figure in South Florida’s punk and ‘zine culture)
Streetopia (the book) is an assemblage of works by twenty-four current and former San Francisco artists tentatively associated with the San Francisco Bay Area “Mission School” or “New Mission School” Art movements. Read a review in The New Times by our very own part-time Sweat sound man, Mr. Entertainment.

Suicide by Jaguar / Suicidio por jaguar
By Dave Landsberger
Translations by J.V. Portela

Suicide by Jaguar is the debut book of poems by comic creator and sales professional Dave Landsberger. Containing both unapologetic love poems and sincere elegies to wild animals, Suicide by Jaguar foregoes irony and other poetic strategies of evasion in order to engage the extremes of human emotion. Landsberger is as unafraid to address the process of gentrification as he is to celebrate the small joys of late capitalism, bending classic forms such as terza rima and heroic couplets into contemporary diction. Published in a unique bilingual format, Suicide by Jaguar also contains Suicido por Jaguar, a Spanish-language version of the book translated by J.V. Portela.
