John Ashbery & Mark Ford

| $27

John Ashbery’s latest collection is Quick Question. His acclaimed translations from French—of poets Mallarmé, Rimbaud, Reverdy, Éluard and Bonnefoy; and of prose writers Roussel, de Chirico and Bataille—will be newly published in Collected editions this spring. He “relishes the impurities, non sequiturs, mixed metaphors and interruptions that constantly derail our thought processes and speech habits and the stories with which we try to make sense of our lives,” wrote Mark Ford. Mark Ford’s Selected Poems also comes out this spring. His poetry is “the real right thing,” wrote John Ashbery. “He is locating and enlarging on new kinds of living that we recognize, in the looking glass world, as what we have been doing all along without realizing it. And he does so with superb grace, generosity and wit.”
