Poetry. "Frannie Lindsay's elegant fifth collection is simultaneously elegiac and celebratory, a tribute to both 'gone things' and the beautiful that remains. Her primary subjects are human, old and diminished and dying; but her expansive vision encompasses the animal and reaches toward the divine," says Martha Collins. Terrence Hayes adds, "Here praise is shaped by the fearlessness and fineness that constitute grace. Indeed, Lindsay's astonishing poetry is synonymous with grace. Here is a beautiful book from one of our very best contemporary poets."
Frannie Lindsay has authored four previous poetry collections: Our Vanishing (Benjamin Saltman Award), MAYWEED (The Washington Prize), Lamb (Perugia Prize), and Where She Always Was (May Swenson Award). Her work appears in Best American Poetry 2014. She is a previous winner of The Missouri Review Prize, and has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.Author City: BELMONT, MA USA
