About the Author
DAWN LUNDY MARTIN was awarded the Cave Canem Poetry Prize for her first poetry collection, A Gathering of Matter/A Matter of Gathering. A founding member of the Black Took Collective, a group of experimental black poets, she is an assistant professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh.
"These poems are dense and deep. They are necessary, and hot on the eye. I was reminded of Leslie Scalapino, the sensitivity to the surrounding arrangements and to human suffering. There is no distance from Martin's subject, but immersion and emotional conflict. Discipline is what it took to write such a potent set of poems." (Fanny Howe)
