About this title

Synopsis:

What a pleasure to encounter not only Jacqueline Michaud's sly, probing, passionate poems but also her deft translations from the French. Jacqueline Michaud is a trickster with an aesthetic conscience, a wry rebel who recognizes how deep our shallow social lies run and how much feeling informs our passing premonitions. -- Baron Wormser, former Poet Laureate of Maine.

The pleasures in Jacqueline Michaud's The Waking Hours are considerable, high among them, for me, language honed and keenly heard...a book of attitudes in search of their formalities, which again and again she finds. A wonderful debut. -- Stephen Dunn, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Literature.

About the Author:

Jacqueline Michaud's work has appeared widely in literary journals and anthologies. A member of the American Literary Translators Association, she also translates the work of contemporary Francophone writers, and recently completed the translation of a major collection of poetry by the 20th century French poet and screenwriter, Jacques Prévert. A radio personality known for her regular guest appearances on Maine Community Radio, as well as public readings throughout her home State, Ms. Michaud lives in Stonington, Maine, with her husband and daughter. The Waking Hours is her first full collection of poems and translations.
