Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. An unforgettable debut: Lasky is a seductive prophet who delights as ably as she terrifies. If the Book of Revelations had been scribbled in the diary of a precocious fourteen-year-old girl, the prophecies might look something like AWE. Lasky is a daring truth teller, naming names and boldly pushing the boundaries of confession. "Lasky's poems embrace everything from our most intimate to our most metaphysical experiences. Love and hope and pain and, of course, awe come rushing at the reader with no intermediary. These poems are refreshingly generous and direct in their celebration of life, and are a revelation"--Matthew Rohrer.

Synopsis:

If the book of Revelations had been scribbled in the diary of a precocious fourteen-year-old girl, the prophecies might look something like Awe. Dorothea Lasky is a daring truth-teller, naming names and boldly pushing the boundaries of confession. The secrets she tells are truths we recognize in ourselves: “Be scared of yourself / The real self / Is very scary.”

Dorothea Lasky was born in St. Louis in 1978. She is the author of several chapbooks and has attended Harvard University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
