Dawn McGuire was born in Grayson, Kentucky, in the foothills of the Appalachians. She graduated from St. Timothy's School and Princeton University, where she won the Academy of American Poets Prize and the Morris Croll Poetry Prize. Her first book, Sleeping in Africa, was published in 1982. Heeding Auden's advice to young poets, "Do something else," she went on to obtain a Master of Divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary and an M.D. from Columbia University. A neurologist and a national authority on the neurological complications of AIDS, her research focuses on dementia. She is currently the president of a company developing a treatment to combat Alzheimer's disease. Returning to writing after a long hiatus, she has recently won prizes from Villa Montalvo Biennial Poetry Competition, The Clackamas Review, and The Spoon River Poetry Review. She lives in Berkeley with her partner and their two children.Review:
