Author(s) and Guest(s)

Sharon Olds

Olds' Pulitzer Prize-winning poetry collection, Stag's Leap (Knopf;  $16.95), tell the story of a divorce, presented in all its complexity:  love, sex, sorrow, memory, and new freedom.  ". . . rife with emotional life, shifting beautifully from emotional life, shifting beautifully from laughter to longing, rage to sorrow."--Mark Doty. Olds is the author of several poetry collections, including The Unswept Room and Satan Says.   

August Kleinzahler

In his latest poetry collection, Hotel Oneira (Farrar, Straus and Giroux; $24.00), August Kleinzanler unearths the moments of grace burning under the detritus of our hectic, modern lives. " . . . a modernist swirl of sex, surrealism, urban life and melancholy . . ."--The New York Times Kleinzahler has authored eight books of poetry, including Sleeping It Off in Rapid City, which won the 2008 National Book Critics Circle Award.

Mary Jo Salter

Nothing By Design (Knopf; $26.95) is a collection of verse––both light and dark––from one of our most admired poets. In addition to her six previous poetry collections, Salter is the author of a children's book, The Moon Comes Home, and a coeditor of The Norton Anthology of Poetry. She is Andrew W. Mellon Professor in The Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University
