Home Remedies: New and Selected Poems, 1961-1981, Axelrod, David B.
3 Axelrod, David B. Home Remedies: New and Selected Poems, 1961-1981
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 1982 0893040525 / 9780893040529 First Paperback New Poetry & Art 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Bebe Barkan For my grandmother, Esther Kransberg (1882-1962)
"If any poet working in America at present has the power to smash complacency, it is [Axelrod].... If his work is news to you, you're lucky to hold this book in your hand. Here, from several collections now hard to obtain, are some of the most lovely, harrowing, and outrageously funny poems from his first twenty publishing years. For good measure, there is a trove of new work besides." --X. J. Kennedy "David B. Axelrod's New and Selected Poems is a striking and extremely readable book. His title, Home Remedies, reminds me that Stephen Crane thought of his poems as 'pills," medicine, and that William Stafford thinks maybe that each of his own poems is in some way at least a mild protest poem. Axelrod's voice is spare, sharp, always engaging in ways that Crane and Stafford are, and convincing within his own ironies and perceptions These are twenty years of poems here, and this is a welcome book." --Wiliam Heyen

4 Barkan, Stanley H. Mishpocheh
Krakow & New York Inter Esse & Cross-Cultural Communications 2003 0-89304-721-X / 9780893047214 First Hardcover Limited with Handmarbleized Endpapers  New Poetry & Art 4 5/8x6 5/8 Bebe Barkan 
“The profound way Barkan articulates constant desire to return home and to bring his readers home by merging them into his own extended and extensive family makes Mishpocheh surely one of the most remarkable poetry collections to be released in the early twenty-first century. The volume’s uniqueness is also emphasized by Bebe Barkan´s colorful paintings–mostly of her family members and her husband’s (including Grandma Celia). Like much of the artwork included in Cross-Cultural Communication’s books, her paintings are warm and colorful, and easily evoke the humanity and individuality of her subjects. Done in a style reminiscent of French Impressionism and American primitive folk art of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, they enhance and personalize her husband’s words, just as his poems ground her pictures in context–in words and memory. Indeed, one of the best features in this flawless publication is the sense of genuine collaboration between husband and wife. Mishpocheh is a complex and captivating poetry collection which deserves to be read time and time again, in hopes that it may help the reader understand and appreciate his or her own mishpocheh a little more. Indeed, a simple review cannot possibly do it justice. One walks away after having read it with a deeper understanding of what it means to be human, to be a finite being who ultimately survives only in the memories of loved ones.” —JoSELLE VANDERHOOFT Author of Desert Songs From a review in The Pedestal Magazine (#31, Dec 2005-Feb 2006)

No Cats on the Yangtze, Barkan, Stanley H.  Translated into Chinese by Zhao Si
5 Barkan, Stanley H. Translated into Chinese by Zhao Si No Cats on the Yangtze
Oyster Bay, New York The Feral Press 2017 First Paper New Poetry 6 1/2x 11 John Digby 
The poems in this collection are a selection from the 38 I wrote while my wife, Bebe, and I were on a 2001 Victo¬ria River Cruise down the Yangtze, before the Three Gorges project covered the thousands of ancient villages resulting from its construction. What I saw and felt, particularly the encounters with the people of China, with a sense that I was traveling not just through a country but through Asian history in its many stages, I wrote about each day in my journal. The 38 poems were the result. This selection is the third and final step towards the publication of all 38. I’m grateful to Hong Ai Bai for agreeing to translate the first 10, published in Sailing the Yangtze, to Zhao Si for translating the others, Gambling in Macáu and the others here in No Cats on the Yangtze, to John Digby for providing images that complement the poems, and to John and Joan Digby for designing, editing, and publishing this chapbook in their New Feral Press. —Stanley H.

Immagine & Poesia: The Movement in Progress, Chiarelli, Lidia
7 Chiarelli, Lidia Immagine & Poesia: The Movement in Progress
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 2013 0893048321 / 9780893048327 First Paperback New Poetry & Art 6 5/8 x 9 3/8 Alessandro Actis, Gianpiero Actis, R Gopakumar. Adel Gorgy, Carolyn Mary Kleefeld, Marsha Solomon Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt
The Irish poet W.B. Yeats said, ‘Words alone are certain good.’ And they are. But when a poet’s work is placed in relation to a painting or a photograph, we can often get an amplifying and expanding of the bird-like track of words on the snow of the page. Indeed, it can be a double blessing: the bird’s song and the bird’s world. It can be another way of interpreting Dylan Thomas’s ‘the colour of saying’. Lidia Chiarelli’s precise snapshots of poems, beautiful and echoing in themselves, are heightened in this collaboration with artist and photographer. The wedding of her careful words, her poetic voice, to such striking images is a personal endorsement of the universal work she does with Immagine & Poesia. —Peter Thabit Jones Welsh poet, author (with Aeronwy Thomas) of the Dylan Thomas Walking Tour of Greenwich Village

8 Clarke, Mia Barkan Tea with Nana: Paintins & Poems
Merrick, New York, USA Cross-Cultural Communications 2009 0893044784 / 978-0-89304-478-7 First Hard Cover New Poetry & Art 6 1/8 x 9 1/8" Mia Barkan Clarke 
TEA WITH NANA is a book of paintings and poems, created throughout the life of woman, who from an early childhood on Long Island, was surrounded by the paintings of her artist mother and the poetry books of her poet-publisher father. This book is an exploration of her inner and outer mind, local and international, through English and several other languages (Hebrew, French, Italian). In a very real sense this book is a cross-cultural journey from birth and childhood, girlhood, teenhood, to maturation as a extraordinarily sensitive and thoughtful woman, a lover-wife and a a mother, as well as a daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter, sister, daughter-in-law, cousin, friend, teacher, and therapist. Her range is from Eve to Sister of the World, from her Jewish culture, through the world cultures that include the Armenian, the Sicilian, and the Blackfoot. This book is an exploration of Woman in all her phases and history, from the Beginning to the Present with a view towards the Future. In a very real sense this book is the saga of a woman who is Everywoman. Mia Barkan Clarke is a working artist and a NYS Licensed, Registered & Board-Certified practicing Creative Arts Therapist. She holds a Master of Arts in Creative Arts Therapy from Hofstra University, a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fabric Styling, specializing in Woven Design and an Associates Degree in Textile/Surface Design from Fashion Institute of Technology (NYC). Mia has been an instructor of Art Therapy at Molloy College in Rockville Centre, and has lectured at Hofstra University and Touro College. Mia is the author of My Sacred Circle Mandala Journal--a creative workbok for self-discovery and exploration consisting of 28 different Mandala directives, including a Recovery Mandala and a Stress-Be-Gone Mandala. Mia lectures and runs workshops about Mandalas and Expressive Weaving (Mia's specialty) within her practice and for various conference venues. Mia is multilingual (Italian, French, Hebrew) whose poetry has been published nationally and internationally, including (USA) Lips, The New Scribes, (UK) Poetry Monthly, and (Wales) The Seventh Quarry. As a working atist, Mia has illustrated multilngual poetry books for the international literary-arts publisher Cross-Cultural Communicaions, has had a number of commissions for her paintings locally and abroad, and has exhibited her work at a number of venues, including a mother-daughter show exhibited at The Stage Gallery, The Howland Cultural Center, Mallette Gallery, and The Paterson Museum. Mia has developed several series, including Sisters of the World and Inner Face. Sisters of the World series, in mixed-media--oil sticks, acrylic, pen & ink, watercolor gouche--explores the relationship among he vast variety of ethnic, national, spiritual and religious, folkloric, mythical, and biblical women. This concentration is a celebration of the sisterhood of all women--how far we've come, and how far we have yet to go. As a multilingual speaker, Mia has been able to probe beneath the surface of a number of cultures. Mia's textile background is clearly evident in her painting. Her inspiration comes from motifs in ethnic designs, ancient interiors, peasant garments, and ornate architecture, and from nature. The artist introduces the many sides of herself, as well as all women through the Sisters of the World series, demonstrating the deep complexitiy and conflict within every woman, hence honoring, embracing, and celebrating the differences within the feminine spirit. Sisters of the World invites the viewer to extend oneself into the pysche of women past, present, and even future. Mia's Sisters of the World paintings have been published in the Paterson Literary Review. Inner Face is a series of drawings and paintings based on her response to working with clients in an acute in-patient psychiatric hospital facility. Mia, both artist and art therapist, emphasizes the importance of self-expression through the arts and practices what she preaches. Mia has shown Inner Face in several solo exhibitions.
