About the Author
A native of New Orleans, NICOLE COOLEY is the author of Resurrection, which won the Walt Whitman Award of the Academy of American Poets, and the novel Judy Garland, Ginger Love. Her other honors include Georgia Poet of the Year in 1997, the Balch Prize for Poetry from the Virginia Quarterly Review, and the "Discovery"/The Nation Poetry Award. She lives in New Jersey and is an associate professor of English and directs the MFA Program in Creative Writing and Literary Translation at Queens College, City University of New York.
"Cooley has summoned the discipline and the craft to maintain a perilous balance between historical researcher and poet. This is a deeply absorbing and powerful rendition of a story whose own power has been too much for some writers."
