    The essays in this volume examine the often-overlooked connection between empire building, imperial rule, and mass starvation. While droughts and other natural disasters can lead to serious food shortages, a decline in food availability need not result in wide-scale starvation. Mass starvation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries has almost always been linked to political decisions about food distribution. Some of the worst cases occurred within empires or their colon... [READ MORE]

Its elegies, litanies, and indictments concern wonder, guilt, and grief about the journey of human life and the state of the natural world.

Answers abound in measured, texturally intimate, and often surprising ... [READ MORE]

These personal poems enter their stories through a variety of characters ... [READ MORE]

This collection is a journey of pain, belongin... [READ MORE]

    "During my first post-lockdown massage, I willingly engaged in the requisite chit chat about lockdown experiences with my therapist. He gushed behind his mask: ‘Oh man. It was so great. Every day I woke up, drank coffee, read, rode my bike…’

    My therapist’s description did sound pretty great. But it was nothing like my own anxiety-ridden ordeal…

    Had I done the lockdown wrong?”
