small independent press founded in 2000. Our original mission: to give voices
to veterans and noncombatants whose lives have been affected by the trauma of
war. We have since expanded to include other work
.




The
latest from PTP

The Mathematics of Disengagement by Susan Hoover



“For those of us privileged to know
her, Susan Hoover’s poems are a reflection of the woman herself. Intelligent,
highly charged, funny, understated, passionate, proud, self-effacing, daring,
joyful, logical, and heartrending. Don’t enter these poems lightly; they won’t
forgive even a flicker of inattention.  Hoover is a top shelf poet; do whatever it takes to
make room for these gorgeous poems, they reward both heart and head.”

- Angelo Verga, author of six
poetry collections, and curator of Literary Events at the legendary
Cornelia Street Café.

“A commanding three-part
mathematical poetic masterpiece of intimate musical delicacy with surprising
twists that land you in the light of fiction and truth/on rough seas/among
swimming words/and the sparkling light of fiction and truth/with the fragility
of glass and the charred edges of repercussion/flipping coins with the
devil/dodging the wreckage of life/falling axes/and edges/lines/and angles
shift and reclaim themselves in the strong shadow of the sun.”

- Bruce Weber, author of
Poetic Justice (Ikon Press) 



Postcards from America by Judith Kerman



"Judith Kerman writes with substance, a wholesome acceptance of an
imperfect world, oneself

included. Her poems are an admirable reality-check for all of us."─Diane
Wakoski

and

Second edition of Kind by Gretchen Primack
