Mary Quade's point of view is uniquely hers -- linguistically inventive, edgily understated, poised and uncompromising. Nothing deflects her from rendering the relentless way we lurch forward, arms crossed, spreading damage like Edward Teller, wanting 'a crater, some fallout to measure.' Welcome to this new voice skillfully and mercifully calling us to account. --Marilyn Krysl, Judge, 2003 First Book Competition

Mary Quade is a graduate of the University of Chicago and the University of Iowa. In 2001, she was awarded an Oregon Literary Fellowship. She now lives in rural northeastern Ohio.Review:
"Though Mary Quade's world in these quirkily meditative poems is populated with sundry native beasts -- from bats and horses to a neon chicken that 'squawks electric' -- it becomes clear that the creature that most galvanizes her imagination is the human beast itself. Accordingly, she plumbs and explores (implicating herself in the doing) the various poignancies of our longings, as well as our 'gloved' fists and hidden 'cold deeds' our 'blight of good intentions.' The result is my favorite kind of book -- attentive to the things of this world while remaining inherently philosophical." --Stephen Dunn
