    The tarot has been used to play games since the 15th century. Since that time each card has also accumulated meanings. By the 18th century the tarot was used for divination or for oracular purposes, much like the Delphic oracles of old. Nowadays the trumps, or major arcana, are believed to chronicle, symbolically, the journey of the Fool through life.
    How to be a Tarot Card (or a Teenager) explores, exploits, and sometimes downright twists the major arcana and the meanings they have accumulated, in the order in which the many hundreds of tarot decks now travelling the world present them. The Star, connoting hope, exists simultaneously as metaphor and feral dog; the rebirth nestled inside the Death card becomes female friendship and escape from patriarchal binds.

    The Intimate Life of Monica P. is the story of a thirty-something-year-old woman trapped in an unhappy marriage. She loves chatting to her friends as a way to forget her problems and humdrum existence. But behind it all there is a secret even her loved ones don't know about. What is it? This story is amusing, touching and thought-provoking. Note! The ending can literally blow your mind.Ok, let's just cut the bullshit. My name is Monica and I'd like to tell you a rollercoaster of a story about my life. I promise you laughter, tears and sex - mostly good, but unfortunately some bad, too. I will share my innermost thoughts and intimate experiences. As a married woman in my 30s, I realized I needed to finally change something about my life, because I wasn't totally happy with how it'd turned out. I have a decent enough job, but my boss is an obnoxious asshole with a love of cringe-worthy jokes. My freaky husband has a somewhat peculiar fetish I will tell you all about later. My friends are the only thing you could truly envy me. They will never let you get bored. But there is something I need to ask you. Don't let your guys read this book - they are better off not knowing what we really think about them.Monica P.

    The IPPY Award–winning anthology of poetry, memoir, and essays—“accounts of assimilation and nostalgia, celebration and resistance” (Rick Barot, author of The Galleons).   This collection contains contributions from sixty-five writers who were either born and/or raised in the United States by one or more immigrant parent. Their work describes the many contradictions, discoveries and life lessons one experiences when one is neither seen as fully American nor fully foreign. Contributors include Richard Blanco, Tina Chang, Joseph Lagaspi, Li-Young Lee, Timothy Liu, Naomi Shihab Nye, Oliver de la Paz, Ira Sukrungruang, Ocean Vuong, and many other talented writers from throughout the United States.  Winner of a Bronze Medal from the Independent Publisher Book Awards for Multicultural Nonfiction   “When you hold in your DNA two countries—the cultures, the languages, the delicious foods and stories—you embody richness. These writers know on the cellular level many-layered ways to live, to struggle, to love. Here are voices we need to hear, writers we need to read. This is a brilliant, timely book, an antidote to divisiveness.” —Peggy Shumaker, former Alaska State Writer Laureate   “The poets and writers in Two-Countries show that one result of our ongoing national experiment is a rich deepening in our literature. We may be in perilous times as a country, but our writers have never been in more ferocious health.” —Rick Barot, author of The Galleons

    The third full collection by Brian Johnstone, and his second to be published by Arc in their Poetry from the UK & Ireland series.
    A grounded yet playful collection from an assured poet, flexing his muscles into newer territory. As well as the deep lineage of rural landscapes that populated previous collections, here Johnstone treats us to an extended trip to the circus, where the glitz and thrill of the big top and its stunts are peeled back to allow us into the physical and emotional rigour that forms the show's backbone. Elsewhere poems transport you more literally through music, movies and TV history, around Europe and into the distant past, again balancing between illusion and the tension that supports it in the more mundane world. And throughout, the tone and language also plays an ingenious balancing act between the structured, the rhyming and the informal. This is a personal and expansive collection, honest and exploratory.
    "Brian Johnstone appears to have taken to heart, or learned by instinct and experience, Robert Frost's advice to avoid approaching a poem's subject too directly. A consequence of this is that Johnstone's poems establish their own presence, leaving room for mystery and lyricism to emerge with a convincing uniqueness. Dry Stone Work is a robust collection, packed with original strengths, delicacies, variety, and a vivid awareness of life. An impressive collection, then, not just to be recommended, but to be read and re-read." - Douglas Dunn
    "The use of language is authentic and precise, and the perception of an often-hidden world fascinating and genuine." - David Morley on The Ring Cycle sequence
    Born in Edinburgh in 1950, Brian Johnstone has lived in the Fife countryside since 1972. He has published two full collections and three pamphlets, as well as appearing in anthologies and other publications in Scotland, elsewhere in the UK and in Europe and the Americas.
