New work from an awardwinning poet
Joanna Klink has won acclaim for poetry of bracing emotional intensity. Of her most recent book, Raptus, Carolyn Forché has written that she is a genuine poet, a born poet, and I am in awe of her achievement.” The poems in Klink's new collection offer a closely keyed meditation on being alone—on a self fighting its way out of isolation, toward connection with other people and a vanishing world.
