Leigh Stein's selections:
From California, On by Jennifer Denrow (Brave Men Press)
"I kept telling myself, I'm in California. I'm in California. And I believed it." Right now I want to leave my life and take this chapbook with me.
Black Life by Dorothea Lasky (Wave Books)
"I am not what I once was, but who would want to be..." A mood ring of a collection, a dreamy dream, a dark basement to be alone in.
