theenk Books is proud to announce the publication of THE AWAKENING by Eileen R. Tabios, a triptych of long poems exploring the diverse ways an awakening unfolds. Also included is an essay on the poet's personal perspectives on the indigenous and the avant garde. The poems range over such disparate elements as the sexual lives of painters (and discussing such details with Dr. William Carlos William) to real-time emails on the poet's "9-1-1" birthday after the attacks on New York's World Trade Center to Angelina Jolie's involvement with refugees. The book's attention span/expanse reflects Ms. Tabios' attempts to collapse time into a point of universal empathy as the reader is asked: "Who decides what kind of life and why? // What kind of / life and / Why?"

Special Release Offer: The first hundred purchasers of THE AWAKENING will also receive their choice of either a complimentary issue of Black Spring Lawrence Issue (value $7), free shipping, or any of a variety of chapbooks from Hank's Original Loose Gravel Press ($7 value).
