About the Author
BRENDA HILLMAN (Kensington, CA) is the author of 11 books of poetry from Wesleyan University Press. She has co-edited numerous books, including At Your Feet by Brazilian poet Ana Cristina Cesar. A former Chancellor at the Academy of American Poets and a recent recipient of the Morton Dauwen Zabel Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters for innovation in literature, she is Professor Emerita at Saint Mary's College of California and lives with her husband Robert Hass.
"Hillman's latest collection gathers meditations on time, nature, contemporary life, social justice, and 'the ragged white moth of history' in one gorgeous stampede. These are all big poems, fully observed and richly packed with Hillman's customary linguistic brio and visceral toughness."--Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal Best Books of 2022

"This is a major book for our time, never turning away from erosion and the passage of time, the loss of ecosystems, and the aging of [the poet's] own body."--Susan McCabe, Colorado Review

"There's no summarizing Brenda Hillman's poetry...[she] speaks like an amplified inner life, an intimate friend, a conscience."--Craig Morgan Teicher, NPR Staff picks "Books We Love"

"Hillman's] most recent books are rooted in broad social and ecological interests: 'passion' is a better term. She has invented a kind of dialogue with the earth; she writes with an intimacy and directness few equal and a magnificence of conception almost no one aspires to."--Citation from the American Academy of Arts and Letters (Morton Dauwen Zabel Award 2020)
