Favorite Bookstores: The Clearance Shelves At Politics & Prose

If, when you walk into Politics & Prose, you take the stairs down and then take a left and walk along the wall of the stairs, you will find shelves of various things, including drama and, most importantly, poetry.

Lots of poetry. Good poetry. Inexepensively priced poetry. Hardback copies for $7.99. Paperbacks for $6.99, $5.99, $4.99, $3.99.

I’ve bought books by Christian Wiman, Rita Dove, Franz Wright, Anne Carson, and Liu Xiaobo. I’ve passed by, because my arms were already full and my small budget already busted, books by John Ashberry, Frederick Seidel, and Augsut Kleinzahler.

Check it out. It never disappoints.
