Poetry. Winner of the 2014 Cider Press Review Book Award. Book award judge Jeffrey Harrison says of STEEL: Two tragic events haunt this powerful first collection-the early loss of the poet's mother and her brother's death-the kind of events that 'change the alignment / of every season after' and tear open vast absences in a life. Alison Prine bravely explores those absences here, engaging in the struggle to make something 'immune to ruin' out of what is broken and to mend the connections severed by death, even while acknowledging the inability of language to fill the void left by loved ones or to find easy answers. 'This isn't consolation, ' as she says in one poem. Instead, poem by poem, she makes a dwelling for herself and the reader, 'building from the inside' while remaining attuned to the possibility of correspondences in the outside world. And through the quiet urgency of her voice, she finds 'a secular way of praying.' This book is a blessing.

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.
