Poetry. Winner of the 2015 David Martinson—Meadowhawk Prize. A collection that takes on the profound questions in language that catches the ear and the imagination. Arising out of wild fires and ash, birds and shadows, deaths in the family and lives in the natural world, A DIFFERENT WAKEFUL ANIMAL investigates what perishes and what might remain.
Susan Cohen is also the author of two poetry chapbooks, a non-fiction book, and Throat Singing, a full- length collection of poems.
