About the Author

Stav Poleg's poetry has appeared on both sides of the Atlantic, in The New Yorker, Kenyon Review, Poetry London, Poetry Ireland Review, PN Review, and elsewhere. A selection of her work is featured in New Poetries VIII (Carcanet, 2021). Her graphic-novel installation, "Dear Penelope: Variations on an August Morning," created with artist Laura Gressani, was acquired by the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Her theatre work was read at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, and the Shunt Vaults, London, and most recently at Kettle's Yard gallery, Cambridge. She lives in Cambridge, UK.

Reviews

'...Like the best cities, it's exhilarating: candid, paced, ever-changing and utterly captivating' Maria Crawford, Financial Times
'The City is a work of surreal and fantastical reach...we acclimatise to the strangeness of the setting, and enjoy the imagination at work.' Sylvia Secci, Poetry London
'The poems often feel like a high-wire act, careening through intricate scenery in a tone by turns playful and lonely. Poleg delights in language as creative material' Heather Green, Poetry Foundation
