About the Author
Graywolf Press is a leading independent and nonprofit publisher of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, translation, and genre-defying literature whose aim is to foster new thinking about what it means to live in the world today.

"Raised By Wolves is essential reading, and the insight offered by the structure of the collection will appeal to writers, readers, and educators alike. This is an anthology that does justice to the incredible legacy of Graywolf and its commitment to poetry, a book that celebrates fifty years without waxing nostalgic, a collection that resonates across time"--Ronnie K. Stephens, The Poetry Question

"The last line of verse in [Raised by Wolves]--from Monica Youn's 'Hangman's Tree'--could double as a tagline for this anthology or for Graywolf itself: 'It will keep you alive.'"--Poets & Writers

"Raised by Wolves is a powerful index of the magnitude of contemporary US poetry. The scope of this anthology will provide new readers with a kaleidoscopic view of this ecosystem at the same time that it will allow more experienced readers to explore the dynamics of literary kinship. To put it differently, here we encounter not only the strength of the poet in the pack but the strength of the pack in the poet."--Christos Kalli, Chicago Review of Books

"Outstanding. . . . An enjoyable volume featuring a diverse contingent of artists."--Kirkus Reviews

"This landmark collection embodies the press's dedication to fostering dialogue across cultures, traditions, languages, and generations, and so it is received as a cherished and momentous addition to the literary landscape." --Debbra Palmer, New York Journal of Books

"A finely-constructed showcase that successfully manages to celebrate Graywolf's history while looking forward to the press's ongoing commitment to push poetry forward into new, sometimes difficult, always exciting territory." --Allisa Cherry, West Trade Review
