Poetry. "The poems in Joanna Fuhrman's MORAINE are just as layered and organic as the landforms alluded to in the title. Fuhrman sifts through the debris of modern day life and makes beautiful new sculptures with the rubble she finds. At home with the narrative, collage, and abstract leaps, her poetry is as unpredictable as it is inevitable. Fuhrman is a queen of drama, rather than a drama queen. A royal highness of storytelling, she reigns supreme in these polyphonic, textured, and generous poems" --Denise Duhamel.
Joanna Fuhrman began publishing her poems when she was in high school. She now teaches at Rutgers and other schools and has curated reading series at The Poetry Project and other venues. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, playwright Robert Kerr.
