ABOUT THE BOOK My Mother Did Not Like to Hug: New and Selected Poems is the product of half a century of work, four published books, and a lot of sweat and tears. It is a very special volume by award winning New York poet and teacher Nikki Stiller. Of her work critics have written: "Autobiographical confessionalism is vastly expanded by history, ethnography, religion, and more in the hands of Nikki Stiller. She wants to tell the truth so that the reader can identify his/her deepest secrets with it."- Jeffrey Jullich "Yours is a distinctive voice." - Czeslaw Milosz, Nobel Prize Winner ABOUT THE AUTHOR Nikki Stiller was born in Hartford, CT in 1947. She holds a Ph.D. in English from CUNY where she won the Parsons Award for Best Dissertation of the Year.

Her work has appeared in a range of periodicals, from The New York Times to Home Planet News, and including Primavera, Response, Midstream, Lilith, and Poetry New York. She is the author of six books, four of them poetry: Notes of a Jewish Nun, On Both Frontiers, Burial Ship, and My Own Afghanistan.
