Poetry. Winner of the Sunken Garden Poetry Award, selected by Peter Stitt. We fill our days with matter and clutter, objects that might disappear inside their particular and necessary function: soap, a wineglass, nightgown, or thumb. Do we truly think about what the bedroom door has witnessed? Or the fountain, with its sculpture of a boy standing naked in a city square? Like Francis Ponge, Gertrude Stein, Seamus Heaney, and Pablo Neruda, Bar-Nadav makes a poetic investigation of objects to illuminate their visceral and playful potential in our lives.

She is also co-author of a best-selling textbook, Writing Poems (Longman, 8th edition). She is Associate Professor of English at the University of Missouri in Kansas City.Review:
"The hyper-focused intimacy of the exquisite poems in Fountain and Furnace shapeshift and plumb beautifully deep. The simple objects of Bar-Nadav's titles become layered with vivid shadows and sad strangeness. . . . exactness charges the invisible--the marvelous strata underneath the outward--with fierceness and loss and sensuality." --Alex Lemon, author of The Wish Book and Happy: A Memoir
"A bracing pruning of form down to its minimalist essence, a sharp knife trimming away dead branches. The point of view is always shifting, sometimes speaking as the object, sometimes to the object, and sometimes transubstantiating, perhaps to something like the voice of a god." --Peter Stitt, author of The Perfect Life and judge for the Sunken Garden Poetry Award --Advance Praise
