KATIE PETERSON'S new book of poetry is "Fog and Smoke." Booklist wrote in a starred review, "Each line shines in the sun like stained glass. 'Fog and Smoke' is a triumph of observation and intimacy that invigorates the reader to act for the natural world." Katie Peterson's previous book, winner of the Omnidawn Open Book Prize, is "Life in a Field," with photographer Young Suh, "a comedy about climate change, in which a girl and a donkey become friends, then decide to marry time." Other previous collections include "This One Tree"; "Permission"; "The Accounts," winner of the Rilke Prize; and "A Piece of Good News," finalist for the Northern California Book Award. Her work has appeared in Journal of Alta California, Literary Imagination, and Poetry Northwest.
ANDREA COHEN'S new book of poetry is "The Sorrow Apartments." Christian Wiman says of her poems, "One is caught off guard by their cumulative force. This is work of great and sustained attention, true intelligence, and soul." She is the author of eight collections of poetry; her previous books include "Everything" and "Nightshade." Publishers Weekly said of Everything, "…A master stylist, Cohen uses em dashes and commas with an exactness that allows each poem to become elliptical and self-contained. These poems take no 'thing' for granted, not even the concept of eternity, as Cohen declares in 'Openings': 'I didn't want// forever forever.' It is the wit that astounds here, and an intelligence that sees the world anew." Andrea Cohen's poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The Threepenny Review, The Atlantic Monthly, Poetry, and elsewhere.
