Our good friend Valzhyna Mort's first American collection of poems, Factory of Tears, is now available from Copper Canyon Press. Valzhyna had two poems in Barrelhouse Issue 4, one of which you can also find in this volume. Originally from Belarus, Valzhyna had published a collection over there to rave reviews before moving to the states. This new volume contains poems translated from the Belarusian by Pultizer Prize-winning poet Franz Wright and Elizabeth Oehlkers Wright. Check it out. Valzhyna is one to watch.
