Poetry. On a journey that begins in South Florida and ends up in Romania, the country of her family's forgotten history, Tara Skurtu plays 'the amoeba game,' a game that has no rules. With subtle and serious humor, with the vivid spontaneity of memory and dreams, and with surgical precision, these compelling, mysterious poems hold up a lens that reveals the slippery and changing dimensions of our many selves.
Tara Skurtu, born in Key West, Florida, is a two-time Fulbright grantee and recipient of two Academy of American Poets prizes and a Robert Pinsky Global Fellowship in poetry. Her poems have appeared in Salmagundi, The Kenyon Review, Plume, and Poetry Review. She is the author of the chapbook Skurtu, Romania (Eyewear, 2016).Author City: Bucharest ROM
