xPress(ed) is pleased to announce the release of Eileen R. Tabios' latest poetry collection, MENAGE A TROIS WITH THE 21ST CENTURY ("MAT21"). Her first book to follow on her critically acclaimed Reproductions of the Empty Flagpole (Marsh Hawk, New York, 2002), MAT21 includes two series which resuscitate 21st century lives for Enheduanna (2285-2250 B.C.), the Mesopotamian poet-priestess, and Gabriela Silang (1731-1763), the Philippines' first woman general.

ON MAT21, poet and critic Kevin Killian announces:

"Half diary of dildo desire, half rhapsodic insurgent mediation between art and life, Tabios' book moves from melting prose poetry to a fully lineated, musical demand for action. You, the reader, fully implicated in this intercontinental love triangle, shall find yourself asking, 'Where is the world that is waiting to happen?' The question that haunted Enheduanna and Gabriela plunges out of the book, ferocious, tongue dipped in fire, dragon with sapphire eyes and no conscience."

As of Fall 2004, MAT21 is available through Small Press Distribution (www.spdbooks.org), Meritage Press (www.MeritagePress.com), Amazon.com and, in Finland, through xPress(ed).

MAT21 also will be one of the prizes awarded to winners of OUR OWN VOICE's Global Filipino Literary Award for books published in 2003.
