New Book! Selected Poems by Takuboku Ishikawa

every man I know
has a prisoner moaning
deep down in his heart

 - Takuboku Ishikawa -

    This book is a selection from Ishikawa's youthful poems, and a complete imagining into English of his final collection known in English as Grieving Playthings, Sad Toys, and more specifically Suffering Playthings. For over 100 years Ishikawa's work has been exciting for the modern reader because he was among the very first to bring the depths of his inner turmoil as a human being to life on the page.

      The beautiful cover art is by Zara Kand!
