More about the readers
Louise Glück’s new book of poems, her eleventh, is A Village Life. Rain Taxi says, “Though it resembles her others least, A Village Life may come to be seen as Glück’s most beautiful and moving book so far…[It] shows a ripening of Glück’s genius, her mastery for depicting the things of this earth…” One of America’s most renowned poets, her honors include a Pulitzer Prize, a National Book Critics Circle Award, the Bollingen Prize, and a Wallace Stevens Award from the Academy of American Poets. Sky Burial is Dana Levin's third book of poems. The New Yorker writes: "Sky Burial brings a wealth of ritual and lore from various strains of Buddhism, as well as Mesoamerican and other spiritual traditions…the intensity and seriousness and openness of her investigations make Levin's use of this material utterly her own, and utterly riveting." Sky Burial was listed one of the Best Books of Poetry 2011 by the San Francisco Chronicle, Library Journal, and Coldfront Magazine. Levin's first book of poems, In the Surgical Theatre, was chosen by Louise Glück in 1999 for the coveted APR/Honickman First Book Prize.
