MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Dorothy Gilbert's new poetry collection is Fox Woman. Robert Alter says, "The world becomes magical and often mysterious in Dorothy Gilbert's poems. Landscapes, cityscapes, ordinary domestic settings, and, above all, the presences of nature show forth in a fresh light. The language of the poems is vigorous and musical, its diction bracingly compact, and abounding in little revelatory surprises. This is a book that readers who care about poetry should cherish." Dorothy Gilbert's poetry has appeared in The New Yorker, The Nation, The Iowa Review, and other print and online publications from Poetry Flash to Persimmon Tree. Her translations are included in The Norton Anthology of Literature by Women, and she has published two translations from twelfth-century Old French: Erec and Enide, the first known Arthurian romance, and Marie de France: Poetry. She received the Northern California Book Award for Poetry in Translation and an award from the Columbia University Translation Center. She has also published criticism, journalism, and science fiction.

Naomi Ruth Lowinsky's fifth poetry book is Death and His Lorca. Susan Terris says, "Naomi Ruth Lowinsky's [new book] is a powerful volume of poems about love, about loss but also about how lost ones still stream indelibly through a life. Again and again, Lorca's passion and Lowinsky's intertwine, adding a memorable musical lyric to the whole book." Death and His Lorca includes Lowinsky's strongest work from the last two decades, it is "at once archetypal, personal, political and influenced by the great Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca, whose understanding of duende—involving the presence of death—became the magnet for the poems in this collection. The dead show up as late kin, late friends, ancestors, tricksters, spirit guides and oracles." Her poetry books include Dreaming Night Terrors, The Faust Woman Poems, and Adagio & Lamentation; her memoir is The Sister from Below: When the Muse Gets Her Way. She is the author of numerous prose essays, many published in Psychological Perspectives and The Jung Journal. She is also co-editor of Marked by Fire: Stories of the Jungian Way. A member of the San Francisco Institute, for years she led Deep River, a writing circle there. She is a Jungian analyst in private practice.
