A-BA-BA-HA-LA-MA-HA Publishers presents the first translated anthology of young poetry of the U.S.A. recently in the world!
This Anthology comprises selected poems from a vast array of young poets from the U.S.A. (35 authors). Most of them were assembled, compiled, and translated by Taras Malkovych, a young Ukrainian poet who lived in NYC researching young U.S. poets as a Fulbright Scholarship holder. It is the first translated anthology of young poetry from the U.S.A. recently in the world. The introduction for the anthology was written by Tom Healy, poet, head of the Fulbright Scholarship Board in New York.
