About the Author
Noah Warren was born in Canada and is the author of The Destroyer in the Glass (2016), chosen by Carl Phillips for the Yale Series of Younger Poets. A former Wallace Stegner Fellow, he is pursuing a PhD in English at UC Berkeley. He lives in Oakland. His poems appear in The Paris Review, Poetry, ZYZZYVA, PEN America, New England Review, Narrative, The Southern Review, AGNI,, The Sewanee Review, and elsewhere
"The Destroyer in the Glass impresses at once with its wedding of intellect, heart, sly humor, and formal dexterity, all in the service of negotiating those moments when an impulse toward communion with others competes with an instinct for a more isolated self. The poems both examine and embody the nexus of joy and sorrow, of certainty and confusion, without which there'd be none of the restlessness that makes us uniquely human. Warren's vision is a generous one indeed--and itself a gift."--Yale Series of Younger Poets prize, Carl Phillips, 2015

"The poems are lithe and fluid, rhythmic and pointed... Warren offers a raw and piercing vision."--Publishers Weekly

"This book interrogates the mysteries of self and other in a quest for empathy, that most elusive of moral values and perhaps the one most reliant on the poet's powers of imagination."--SCOUT

"In his debut poetry collection The Destroyer in the Glass, Noah Warren displays an uncanny calm in the face of the unknowable."--Chapter 16
