About this title


Poetry. "THE SECRET OF WHITE is a marvel of language, written with acute patience and precision. Each line and image is crafted with the care of embroidery, the pen and paper giving way to the needle and thread: 'if I read what I have written I will loosen the stitches.' Loosening these stitches reveals a world rich with color and a beauty embedded in the everyday 'plums/ cracked open, red threads spun/ into grey'"--Truong Tran. Barbara Tomash's previous book of poetry FLYING IN WATER (also available from SPD) won the 2006 Winnow First Prize and has been reissued by Spuyten Duyvil Press.

About the Author:

Barbara Tomash was born in Washington, D.C., and raised in Los Angeles. She worked extensively as a multimedia artist before her creative interests turned her toward writing. In 1998, she received her M.F.A. in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, where she now teaches. Her poetry has appeared widely in literary journals, including New American Writing, Colorado Review, and ZYZZYVA. An earlier version of Flying in Water was a finalist for the Autumn House Press Book Award and a semi-finalist for the Slope Editions Book Prize and the Nightboat Poetry Prize. She lives in Berkeley, California with her husband and son.
