Elaine Sciolino came to Paris as a young foreign correspondent and was seduced by a river. In The Seine, she tells the story of that river from its source on a remote plateau of Burgundy to the wide estuary where its waters meet the sea, and the cities, tributaries, islands, ports, and bridges in between.

From one of our most celebrated contemporary poets--long-listed for the National Book Award and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and England's T.S. Eliot Prize--comes Jane Hirshfield's Ledger, her most important work yet. From its already much-quoted opening lines of despair and defiance ("Let them not say: we did not see it. / We saw."), Hirshfield's poems inscribe a registry, both personal and communal, of our present-day predicaments, and call us to action.
