Poetry. Photography. Literary Nonfiction. Dance. A cross-genre book of poetry, photography and notes for choreography, A LILY LILIES maps space through language, language through movement, and both space and movement through pictures in sections that move from immense spaces of the American Southwest to a dance stage in Philadelphia to the space of the self. "Mapping across space/time, cultures and sensibilities A LILY LILIES expresses the interweaving of the poetry of dance and the dance of poetry. Beautiful work!"—Pauline Oliveros.

Josey Foo grew up in Malaysia. She received an AB from Vassar College, an MFA from Brown University, and a JD from the University of Pennsylvania. She is the author of ENDOU and Tomie's Chair and for the past ten years has worked on the Navajo Nation. Leah Stein is the founder of Leah Stein Dance Company whose site-specific dances have been performed internationally and throughout the United States, in train garages, open fields, corner parking lots, vacant city lots, historic sites, gardens and burial grounds. She teaches at Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore Colleges.
