'Here is a novel alive with beauty, wit, and glorious sensuality, about a woman from the U. S. black elite growing into herself, as seen by her gay uncle—my favourite character—but then so many are just as intriguing. If you read it and you love good fiction, you will want to read it more than once'.
—Samuel R. Delany, author of Dark Reflections
Since the appearance of his first book of poems in 1976, Alfred Corn has distinguished himself as one of the most original poets writing in the United States. In addition to his poems, Corn has also published one novel, a highly praised manual of prosody, a collection of essays, translations of poetry and drama, and critical writing on art, music, and the theater, as well as an edited collection of essays on the New Testament.
Corn has received two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts as well as fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, and the Academy of American Poets. He won the 1982 Levinson Prize from Poetry magazine and has taught at City University of New York; Ohio State University in Columbus; Oklahoma State University in Stillwater; the University of California at Los Angeles; the University of Tulsa in Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Yale University.
