Fabulae (Crab Orchard Award Series in Poetry) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Fabulae, Joy Katz interrogates the physical world, constructing a sensual and striking autobiography. She turns to the familiarity and strangeness of the female body, its surfaces and inner workings, often, although her subjects range from Thomas Jefferson to an Adam and Eve plagued with obsessive-compulsive disorder to the streets of New Yorks diamond district. The poems, by turns funny and philosophical, point to how we suffer from desire: the danger, she writes, is that we might love the world “like heaven and be lost.” But they come back to delight in a flawed world especially the palpable beauty of words, and even the erotic shapes of the letterforms that make them up.

About the Author

Joy Katz held a Wallace Stegner Fellowship in Creative Writing at Stanford University and the Nadya Aisenberg Fellowship at the MacDowell Colony.
