During the month of June, No Tells is featuring "Recommended Summer Reading" selections by No Tell contributors.
Mike Gubser's recommendations:
Here's four books I've liked recently, three by modern American poets and one by an Albanian:
Bird and Forest Brent Cunningham (Ugly Duckling)
Irresponsibility by Chris Vitiello (Ahsahta)
Key Bridge by Ken Rumble (Carolina Wren -- about DC)
The Condemned Apple by Visar Zhiti (Green Integer)
