Asylum


COMING SOON

Vagabond is pleased to announce the forthcoming launch of ASYLUM, by Elizabeth Marino.

“You had me on ‘Contents’ – the Contents alone – I had to read it! It was an emotional ride; I felt sad, I laughed, I blushed and it hit home. I felt very  powerful – uplifting and women empowering. I loved it!”
~ Eneida Martino,
Brooklyn writer/actor, author of the novel Fashion Knitwits.

“Intensely dramatic is its imagery wording where interval haikus appear from nowhere, gasping for quick breath in the middle of all the corners of the American world, including Independence Day and the Vietnam War. Her narration is so vividly aloft that it needs down-to-earth short narrative memoirs so as to end on a high note. A must read for international readers.”
~ ĐẶNG THÂN,
Vietnamese poet/writer, author of OM.

“Endurance can be the knife under the skirt. With this one sentence, Elizabeth Marino's Asylum warns and seduces you. To say the writing is fierce, reflective, tender, only begins to scratch the surface. She is PRESENT. She endures, she cuts to the core of oppression without rhetoric, just resonance. Asylum reveals a writer at the her personal best. In a culture built on silence and erasure, Elizabeth's work is a talisman of survival.”
~ Lisa Alvarado,
poet, author of Raw Silk Suture,
Hispanic Author of the Year, 2009/IL

"This book Asylum by Elizabeth Marino is great poetry – the kind the twenty-first century needs. I was pleasantly shocked by its incisiveness and saddened by its insights into depths... It is clear that she has learned mastery of her imagery, metaphors, metonyms, symbols; all go to make this collection a packed masterpiece that makes you gasp at its beauty and cry at its depth into the human condition in its nuances and not in its generalizations. It "irrupts" into you and refuses to leave you. My hope is that it gets many awards and is prescribed for study in universities, colleges and schools... I feel humbled to have known such a great poet."

~ Dr. Koshy AV
Assistant Professor English Department
University of Jazan, Saudi Arabia

The Role of the Revolutionary Poet


NOW AVAILABLE

Vagabond is pleased to announce the launch of, The Role of the Revolutionary Poet in Society and a Strategic Vision for the 21st Century, by Mark Lipman.

What does the future have in store? What are the possibilities to create a system that places the needs and interests of people over those of the corporations? What is the strategic vision for a People's Economy and most importantly, how do we get there? How do the poets fit into all of this? These are just a few of the questions we examine in this new groundbreaking work by revolutionary poet, Mark Lipman.

"Mark Lipman is a national treasure!!" - Dr. Cornel West

"Mark Lipman’s beautiful prose and rhythmic writing style captures the reader in a pronounced radical fashion; he does not hold back in using the love language of revolutionists, offering past and present problems with capitalism in the age of Covid-19…. His notations of identity are precise, as the white, black, brown, Asian, and indigenousness working class must be fully unified in grasping their intersectional identities, in order for them to achieve an understanding of themselves as wholly marginalized peoples who often are comprised of multiple identities: LGBTQ, people of color, women, etc.…. This work does that. A must read for the poet, working class, academic, and activist."

Edward Carson
Greater Boston Activist
Dean of Multicultural Education, The Governor’s Academy

The Baby Huey Chronicles


Vagabond is pleased to announce the launch of The Baby Huey Chronicles, by Peter Cocuzza.

 "The Trump years have thus far proven that in these United States of America, fascism arrives first as tragedy, then as farce, and finally as reality television. Peter Coco's THE BABY HUEY CHRONICLES is a collection of poetry written in defiance of these fascist times. It is the poetic expansion of the giant inflatable Trump baby, a symbol as good as any to define this absurd era we are living in. In these pages Coco simultaneously captures the dangers of the moment we are living in while simultaneously spitting in the face of it. Read this book, laugh, then cry, then fight." - Matt Sedillo

Only $16.95
