About the Author
JUDY HALEBSKY'S first book, Sky=Empty, won the New Issues Prize and was a finalist for the California Book Award. Her chapbook, Space / Gap / Interval / Distance, won the Poets-Under-Forty award from Sixteen Rivers Press. Originally from Nova Scotia, she now lives in Oakland and teaches at Dominican University of California.
"Few new poets lend themselves so well to being quoted: 'I sang in the bath until you learned the songs.' Halebsky knows no world is perfect, but she is less inclined to file objections than to defend, and to celebrate, what she has, what she can do, and whom she can love: All poems are about love, she says, comparing herself to the orange tree that won't lose its leaves -- though the same page warns us not to trust her, raised on misquotations, abbreviations, unsubstantiated claims."--Stephen Burt "Los Angeles Times"
