I will snap up anything by Nikki Giovanni and here she doesn't disappoint. She can make a poem out of anything, with her signature fluid style. This is a solid collection for an American master in the genre. [Karen]

This hilarious book captions classic McCall pattern images, teaching us about football sticks, what to say on a business card, melting hands, beguiling hats, and puppet hands. If you read this without laughing, you're probably friends with Gayle, ugh Gayle. [sweet pea]

This beauteous book profiles working distillery cats from around the country. While not as an important job as being a bookstore cat, this book shows the cats in all their glory. There are bonus cocktail recipes, although they have no catnip, so what's the point? [Atticus]

These eight short stories revolve around women, and the violence visited upon women's bodies. The first, "The Husband Stitch," (finalist for the Nebula and Shirley Jackson awards), is a total knockout. The collection is sexy and dark, with elements of fable, horror, comedy, and science fiction. Very queer. Really, it's all those things and it feels as timely as ever. [Tanya]

This book taught me how to touch absence, to feel in a very real way every pain we inflict on each other, to dance with ambivalence, to wonder (ponder) and to wonder (awe). Recommended for fans of Elena Ferrante, especially. - Kenny!

Despite being over half a billion years old, we know very little about jellyfish, who are both fascinatingly beautiful and serve as a barometer for the health of our oceans. We might just be able to survive climate change, with a little help from jellyfish. [sweet pea]
