Flemish Poet finally available in English

I can't wait to get my hands on this. Herman de Coninck is a Flemish poet I became aware many years ago. I haven't been able to find much of his work translated into English, though what I have found has usually delighted me, and I've always been hungry to find more. Well now there's more. The Plural of Happiness: Selected Poems has just been published by Oberlin College, with translations by Laure-Anne Bosselaar and Kurt Brown. Some of the poems recently appeared on Poetry Daily, and from the looks of things de Coninck's poems have finally received the translations they deserve.
