About the Author
Sarah Katz's poems have appeared in District Lit, the So to Speak blog, Rogue Agent, MiPOesias, The Shallow Ends, and Bear Review, among others. She earned an MFA in poetry from American University and her poetry manuscript, Country of Glass, was named a finalist by former US Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky for Tupelo Press's 2016 Dorset Prize. She has contributed essays and articles to a variety of publications, including The Atlantic, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Rumpus, Slate, and others. Sarah lives with her husband, Jonathan, in Fairfax, Virginia, and is Poetry Editor of The Deaf Poets Society, an online journal that features work by writers and artists with disabilities.

"As readers and as human beings, we are blessed by this poet's willingness to grapple with her alienation, to enter into conversations with a strange, painful, beloved, and deeply alive world through her purely distilled observations. From the surrealness of inanimate objects to the all-too-real nature of how people suffer and cause suffering, Sarah Katz waves us into her poetic vision with courage, with exquisite language, with open and articulate hands."

--Sarah Stockton "River Mouth Review"

"Katz's ways with sharp detail and rhetorical questions that address a lot of existentialist stress I fret about frequently become a comfortable reassuring read despite its occasional heavy big questions and personal tragedies ... These incredibly well-written poems definitely hit home with themes such as trauma and deaf identity, manipulating us to constructively think more about what we think and how we live in this fleeting life filled with the beautiful flowers that come with thorns."

--Payne Nymo "Wordgathering"

"Sarah Katz has woven a humane and haunting book of poems...simply outstanding reading."

--Jonah Meyer "Heavy Feather Review"

"Country of Glass by Sarah Katz is unsettlingly beautiful in both language and its harsh reminder of how fragile our systems are, from bodies to countries. And somehow, the fragile nature of both is explained in short, yet striking verse."

--Gretchen Gales "Quail Bell Magazine" (1/25/2023 12:00:00 AM)
