MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Rebecca Foust’s new book of poems is Paradise Drive, winner of the 2015 Press 53 Award for Poetry. Thomas Lux says, “There is great music in these poems, and sonnet after sonnet is masterful. Not since Berryman’s Henry have I been so engaged by a persona: Pilgrim, who ‘like most of we” is good and bad, hapless sometimes, other times approaching wisdom, always sending deeper and deeper her primary roots.” Her previous books include God, Seed: Poetry and Art About the Natural World and All That Gorgeous Pitiless Song. Among her honors are a Foreword Book of the Year Award, an MMM Press Poetry Book Prize, and two Robert Phillips Poetry Chapbook prizes.
Susan Terris’s newest full-length book of poems is Ghost of Yesterday: New and Selected Poems. Ronald Wallace says of her work, “Susan Terris teases out the terror of the everyday, the elegies for all our lost selves. And yet, in their immense range and variety, their wildness and dangerousness, these poems are finally suffused with poignancy and compassion.” Her 2015 Omnidawn chapbook is Memos; David St. John wrote, “Susan Terris’s Memos are bristling notations and spare sketches from our fractured and fragmented world—yet these poems can also be understood as celebrations of both wisdoms gained and innocence lost. Scenes that sometimes begin as cameos shift subtly into raw memento mori for times lost or unforgiven. These vignettes are brilliantly rendered, precisely inscribed—and always impossible to forget.” Among her other book are The Homelessness of Self, Contrariwise, Natural Defenses, and Eye of the Holocaust. She was for seven years co-editor of RUNES, A Review of Poetry. She is now editor of Spillway and poetry editor of Pedestal Magazine and In Posse Review. She’s won a Pushcart Prize, and her work will appear in Best American Poetry 2015.
