The University of Alaska Press announces the release of Adam Tavel's "Plash and Levitation" — the inaugural selection for the "Permafrost" Book Prize.
"Plash and Levitation" delves into the chaotic sublime of fatherhood, the candid revelations of youth, and the lingering consequences of history. Adam Tavel’s revealing and imaginative poems are joined by fictional monologues from historical figures and cultural icons, juxtaposing personal history with our shared one. Civil War general William Tecumseh Sherman and rock legend Keith Moon are joined by musings from the Redskins logo and the Wolfman. Together they create a lively chorus that clashes and soars. The result is forty- two fascinating pieces that are witty, consistently musical, and undeniably powerful.
