American Poets Continuum #117: Carpathia Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

--Sacramento News & Review

These poems move through love and death, sadness and euphoria, and across European and American landscapes, encountering lovers, strangers, and beloved ghosts. They arrive, finally, in a place of beauty, mystery, grief, and joy. Poems from this collection were selected by Marie Howe as winner of the 2006 Tupelo Press Snowbound Chapbook Award.

Cecilia Woloch ( was named 2004 Georgia Author of the Year in Poetry for her last collection, Late (BOA Editions, Ltd., 2003). She is founding director of the Summer Poetry Workshop in Idyllwild, California. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia, and Los Angeles, California, and travels extensively in Europe.


Eulogies to a dying father, lush lyrics to former lovers in Europe: joy, sorrow, sex, death.
