MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Susanne Dyckman's new book of poems is A Dark Ordinary. George Albon says, "A Dark Ordinary is concerned with a double struggle, that of imagining the words of the early twentieth century immigrants denied civil voices, through the always mute barriers of the photographic record…Dyckman's poems are courageous attempts to puncture this hard double membrane." She is also the author of the collection equilibrium's form and three chapbooks. She is co-editor, as well, of Instance Press.
Elizabeth Robinson's most recent book of poems is On Ghosts. Andrew Joron says, "On Ghosts returns us to the haunted aura around words. Here, a crossing of genres—poetry, prose meditation, personal testimony—shows that language itself amounts to a gathering of ghosts. Robinson's oblique lyricism beckons us toward a twilight zone where we become 'witness to the unverifiable.' This is writing as the highest form of bewitching." Her previous books include Counterpart, Blue Heron, Three Novels: Poems, House Made of Silver, Also Know As, Inaudible Trumpeters, Under That Silky Roof, and Apprehend, winner of the 2003 Fence Modern Poets Prize. She has received grants from the Fund for Poetry, the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and the Boomerang Foundation, and recently served as the Hugo Fellow at the University of Montana.
