Our favourite from December and a preview of what January has to offer!

Rebecca's Choice: The Golden Rule by Ernest Noyes Brookings

During the last seven years of his life Ernest Noyes Brookings wrote nearly four hundred poems on a wide variety of subjects arranged with his gentle mixture of faith and logic.

The Golden Rule now presents his best work in a single volume. With a biographical memoir by David Greenberger (editor of The Duplex Planet, and also the man who first encouraged Brookings to write), photographs and facsimiles of handwritten poems, this book commemorates a truly distinctive and wonderfully enjoyable writer.

Yen-Yen's Choice: Forgive the Language by Katy Evans-Bush

Typewriters, plagiarism and the poetic line are just three of the subjects under the spotlight in this book of essays by much-loved literary blogger Katy Evans-Bush.

Combining the intellectual rigour of the literary critic with the dynamism of a seasoned traveller in the blogosphere, these essays place poetry at the heart of contemporary culture, meeting at the borders it shares with music, politics and sculpture.
