This edition of “Incidental Noyes” comes from Ellen Hagan, whose collection of poetry HEMISPHERE just published. Library Journal was led to say that “we see that time doesn’t so much stretch out but circle us in, as reflected in a beautifully compressed language (“be the peacock & the treble, be/ the tremor & the starved”) that doesn’t so much capture as intensify.” Enjoy this intensely energetic, explicit (if every way) playlist. Be prepared to dance!


NUP is pleased to introduce a semi-regular feature “Incidental Noyes,” in which we ask our authors, employees at the press, and friends of the press to share playlists of music that inspires them or that might be found playing in the background when they write. First up is poet and NUP Poetry Editor and Sales Manager Parneshia Jones. As you might imagine from her title, she juggles many projects. This classic, yet diverse, list reflects her wide-ranging interests.
