About the Author

Arielle Greenberg's previous poetry collections are Come Along with Me to the Pasture Now, Slice, My Kafka Century and Given. She's also the writer of the creative nonfiction book Locally Made Panties, the transgenre chapbooks Shake Her and Fa(r)ther Down, and co-author, with Rachel Zucker, of Home/Birth: A Poemic. She has co-edited three anthologies, including Gurlesque, forthcoming in an expanded digital edition co-edited with Becca Klaver. Arielle's poems and essays have been featured in Best American Poetry, Labor Day: True Birth Stories by Today's Best Women Writers and The Racial Imaginary, among other anthologies. She wrote a column on contemporary poetics for the American Poetry Review, and edited a series of essays called (K)ink: Writing While Deviant for The Rumpus. A former tenured professor in poetry at Columbia College Chicago, she lives with her family in Maine, where she writes, edits, teaches and works for a creative services agency.


"In an increasingly joyless and digitized time, Arielle Greenberg weaves together ancient instincts with a postmodern sensibility. Smashing not only the patriarchy, but all concepts of what it means to be a 'good' smart feminist, I Live in the Country & other dirty poems is essential reading for anyone with a body."
--Carina Finn
"Greenberg's poetry serves as reminder of our primal existence as she invites us into the muck, an indistinguishable line between where our landscape ends and we begin. Greenberg has birthed an intimate and embodied experience of textual ecstasy that oozes with desire, pleasure and bodily fluids. Her ecosexual play will leave you filthy in the purest and most ecstatic way possible."
--Madison Young
