As the northeast digs out from a long winter, we turn to thoughts of spring. Wesleyan UP has an exciting spring line up, including new poetry titles Itself (Rae Armantrout), Mr. West (Sarah Blake), Heliopause (Heather Christle), and The Glory Gets (Honorée Fanonne Jeffers). In addition, we have two books forthcoming from the Wesleyan Film series, The Cinema of Errol Morris and The Lives of Robert Ryan, and a few new books from our Garnet Book series: Heroes for All TimeHomegrown Terror, and In History's Wake
