About the Author
HARRYETTE MULLEN teaches at the University of California, Los Angeles. She is the author of Sleeping with the Dictionary, which was a finalist for the National Book Award, National Book Critics Circle Award, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.
"Mullen's is a stunningly lyrical voice, rich and resonant, engaged and engaging." --Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
"In her previous four collections, Harryette Mullen's influences have ranged from language poetry to the rhythms and playfulness of the black vernacular . . . Suffused with both politics and literary theory, Mullen's language refuses to be weighed down by either." --The New York Times Book Review
