FINALIST for the 89TH CALIFORNIA BOOK AWARD IN POETRY

Conoley's selected poems assemble a shockingly varied body of work, comprising narrative, lyric, and fragmented forms. Her coruscating vibrant poems are informed by visual art and film, political engagement and playful linguistic constructions. Throughout, one can trace Conoley's obsessions and concerns: democracy, metaphysics, motherhood, gender and race, futurity and history.
