Recommended by Rich Smith

University of Puget Sound associate professor of English Mita Mahato is out with her first book of cut paper comic poems (how’s THAT for a genre blender), In Between. Mahato’s meditations on loss—of a mother, a lover, the world’s animals, and democracy—thematically bind each gorgeously sad section together. Her collection of “Extinction Limericks” are particularly good, and short enough to publish in full here. “There once was a tiger from Java,” one reads. The book’s true joy and energy derive from the artist’s mash-up of materials—rippling water cut from newspaper and animorphs excised from old dress patterns.
