Cold Mountain Mirror Displacement by Jeremy Hoevenaar


American Books is very pleased to announce the release of its very first book, Cold Mountain Mirror Displacement by Jeremy Hoevenaar. An excerpt:

Difficult the path that leads

to the home I’ve chosen, flayed by neon

greetings, hithering flights

of technomancy, invisible progressive

deteriorations, and the sub-audible

groveling of infant interiorities. Put on

your genius pants and welcome the future

captions of America. Prepare the warm

embrace. The world does love

a lumbering consensus. Your resolution’s current

cruising altitude proves the ceiling.

“You can x-ray Cold Mountain Mirror Displacement to various amusing ends. It will survive the radiation by singing itself through your process.” – from the afterword by Anselm Berrigan.

The official release date is November 2nd, with a joint release party held at Pierogi in Brooklyn at 8:00 PM alongside Ugly Duckling Presse, accompanying the release of Ed Steck’s book, The Garden: Synthetic Environment for Analysis and Simulation.


Jeremy Hoevenaar is a poet residing in Baltimore, MD.

Cold Mountain Mirror Displacement is $12.00, plus $3.00 shipping and handling for domestic orders. International orders must be calculated. Please click below to purchase.

“Solicitations” – the first publication by American Books has been released.

Solicitations is the first project from American Books. Featuring both visual and textual work by a wide array of writers and artists, Solicitations was conceived of as a means to gather community around this new press and the kind of work it will make visible in the future. It contains 36 pamphlets housed in a custom-made box and was printed in three limited editions of 50, which are geographically specific to each of the publisher’s current locations: the New York edition, the Pittsburgh edition, and the Berlin edition.
