I need your top three books printed in 2005

Poets and Writers have their emerging writers, most of them I had not read and now I want to know what you think. Who are your favorite first collection for the year?

Siken: CRUSH

Doran: RESIN

Chang: CIRCLE

I know there are others I am forgetting now.

I just started reading Into Perfect Spheres Such Holes Are Pierced and I had to put it down after 15 pages because it was tearing a fucking hole right through me.

Also: Crush, Richard Siken
Like Awake Lake, Beckian Fritz Goldberg
This Connection of Everyone With Lungs, Juliana Spahr

I've been pimping Dana Levin's Wedding Day...her second book, but it was published this year.
You might also like Duhamel's latest, Two and Two. And I concur with Chang's Circle, good stuff. And didn't Lara Glenum's new book just come out? I don't have it yet, but I like her work a lot.

None of these are first books, but they're the top three I would name so far that have been printed in 2005:

"Exile in My Homeland" by Dale Jacobson (print-on-demand, published by Author House)

"Ancient Wonders, The Modern World" by Diane Jarvenpa (Red Dragonfly Press)

"Kiot" by Charles Potts (published by Blue Begonia Press)
