Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Like the wading birds of the title, the poems in this collection find their sustenance in the ground, tilling the earthly measure, even as they lift questions toward the heavens. Summoning the pastoral and the oracular by turns, the poems of SANDERLINGS achieve a preternatural rapture, both sensual and learned. "What I love about SANDERLINGS, besides the ripening imagery, is the variety of expression. The poems don't fix on a single way to regard our sense of living. There's a powerful willingness to look into the natural diversity of thought and feeling, and Geri Doran's language is willowy and very fine"—Carol Frost.

SANDERLINGS was chosen twice as runner-up for Tupelo Press's Dorset Prize, selected by Ilya Kaminsky (2009) and Jane Hirshfield (2010). She has received the Amy Lowell Poetry Travelling Scholarship, a Wallace Stegner Fellowship, and fellowships from the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference and Oregon Literary Arts.
