Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Karen Volkman is building up a world slowly, patiently, starting from walls, fences, and hedges. She is a virtuoso, a wise and provacative poet; she makes us long for windows, for the warmth of a room filled with the air of passion." Adam Zagajewski

Review:

"Karen Volkman is a young poet who presents her reader new knowledge. She convinces me, saying, 'I believe there is a song that is stranger than wind.' With utter confidence, her poetry teaches something more. From Karen Volkman I have learned there is another thing — profound and simple and beautiful — to say. In this book the reader will find grace, intelligence, and authority. Learn from her: 'Vacancy's ambassador, other — we are here.'" Allen Grossman, author of How to Do Things with Tears

About the Author

Karen Volkman's first book, Crash's Law, was chosen for the National Poetry Series. Her poems have appeared in the Paris Review, New Republic, Colorado Review, American Letters & Commentary, and Fence. She is currently poet-in-residence at the University of Chicago.
