Description

In her foreword to "Awayward," National Book Award-winning poet Jean Valentine writes, "Jennifer Kronovet's poems in "Awayward" are so surprising and compelling and beautiful, so intelligent and felt. Kronovet uses simple words and works at a mysterious depth, one we can enter with gladness."Written while Kronovet was living in Beijing, "Awayward" illuminates the sense of disconnect that travelers experience when their major touchstones of language and geography are altered. These poems wander the world, drifting in and out of conversations that are alternately comical and grave.Jennifer Kronovet is founding co-editor of "CIRCUMFERENCE," a journal of poetry in translation.show more
