About the Author

Cathy Colman's first book Borrowed Dress won the Felix Pollak Prize for Poetry from The University of Wisconsin Press and was on the The Los Angeles Times Bestseller List the first week of its release. Her second collection, Beauty's Tattoo, was published by Tebot Bach Publications. Her poetry has appeared in many publications including The Colorado Review, Ploughshares, The Huffington Post, Gettysburg Review, Prairie Schooner, The Journal, The Southern Poetry Review, Barrow Street, The Los Angeles Review, Quarterly West, Pool, Chance of a Ghost Anthology (Putnam/Tarcher), Writers on Writing (Putnam), LE Poetry and elsewhere. She has been a free-lance reviewer for The New York Times Book Review. Her poetry has been translated into Italian, Russian, and Croatian.


"To say that Cathy Colman has a gift for language is a wild understatement . . . . These poems are clean, rendered. They've been thought about, edited, polished until right: honed beauty. And the range of these poems! If current lyric poetry can be correctly and disparagingly accused of being "domestic," the floors of Cathy Colman's poems are painting and music; the walls are physics and mathematics; the roof is history and philosophy. In the rooms may be her personal history. The reader can't know. But the windows are the words. Cathy Colman may be our new Ashbery. She can match his direct, almost breathy tone and the amazing vibrancy of his language. But I think she's better, more direct, authentic. More lyrical. Time Crunch is a book to treasure."-Keith Shein, Poetry Flash
