About the Author

Jennifer Givhan is an NEA Fellowship recipient and author of three previous collections of poetry, including Girl with Death Mask. She teaches English at Western New Mexico University.


"Givhan's collection is so much about having hope for another and about envisioning another world in which someone is brave and bright and has not been abandoned. And in this hope, they are wanted and remembered."--American Microreviews & Interviews

""Raise a glass, sit in Alice's just-vacated seat, and sip Givhan's heady home brew, slipping yourself through yourself to sift through her poems' generous gifts of light. In our only and ever more burdened earth, this book is a welcome and welcoming cry in the night, calling all time bandits: We live in a universe still expanding! Come in. Welcome home."--Julie Sophia Paegle, author of Twelve Clocks

"Rosa's Einstein is lush, lurid with color, 'flowerfisted, ' feminist, and bomb-blast bright. '[B]raiding history with myth / like ribbons through plaits, ' Jennifer Givhan turns her keen eyes to time--the science and magic of it--and invents something wholly (and holy) original. This book is seared into my brain."--Maggie Smith, author of Good Bones

"Jennifer Givhan's voice is desperately needed, at this moment more than ever, and in Rosa's Einstein she ambitiously tackles physics, fairy tales, immigration, nuclear bombs, and time travel in one vivid and marvelous collection."--Jeannine Hall Gailey, author of Field Guide to the End of the World

"Highly inventive, super obsessive, and beautifully written, this book of poems is a sleek animal you will find yourself panting behind, chasing Jennifer Givhan as she reclaims history, teaches Albert Einstein to dance cumbia, and makes a ghost sister, Nieve, from the fallout of the Trinity explosion."--Carrie Fountain, author of Burn Lake
