Poetry. This first book by Erin Elizabeth Smith, a formidable poet, editor, and publisher, is accessible, yet visceral and true. Covering family life, travel, the reading life, and friendship, it is an edgy book that is both beautiful and disturbing. Erin Elizabeth Smith understands the value of the musical line and stanzaic development. She is a necessary new voice in poetry.

"Erin Elizabeth Smith's debut book of poems, THE FEAR OF BEING FOUND, is adamantly itself. Smith's nervy, plangent lyrics question and reject assumptions, outfit themselves for uncertainty in a world where wind is 'young and bitter' and 'cicadas sound like a factory of lathes.' Personal and metaphysical, mythic and immediate, these poems are elegant as a pair of white gloves and fierce as a set of fangs."—Angela Ball
