Poetry. PURR is Mary Ann Samyn's fourth book of poetry. "This poetry hovers between irony and true despair" - Lynn Emanuel. "Here is a poetry built of sensory data so sharply honed as to make even the mundane microfibre or the quotidian stone path a journey, a finding, a deep understanding of the world. And who couldn't love a book where Doris Day and Nancy Sinatra are as essential and mysterious as saints?"- D.A. Powell


Mary Ann Samyn is the author of four books of poetry, including PURR (New Issues, 2005). Her work has won the Emily Dickinson Prize from the Poetry Society of America, the James Wright Poetry Award from Mid-American Review, and a Pushcart Prize. She teaches in the MFA program at West Virginia University.
