About this title

Synopsis:

Winner of the 2005 Hollis Summers Poetry Prize
Winner of the 2007 Audre Lorde Award

In her second collection of poems, Jennifer Rose writes primarily of places and displacement. Using the postcard’s conventions of brevity, immediacy, and, in some instances, humor, these poems are greetings from destinations as disparate as Cape Cod, Kentuckiana, and Croatia. Rich in imagery, deftly crafted, and imbued with a lightness of voice, these poems are also postmarked from poetry’s more familiar provinces of love, nature, and loss.

About the Author:

Jennifer Rose is the author of The Old Direction of Heaven (2000) and the recipient of awards and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the Poetry Society of America, among others. Her poems have appeared in Poetry, The Nation, Ploughshares, and elsewhere. She lives in Waltham, Massachusetts, and works as a city planner specializing in downtown revitalization.
